Dr Tanu Jain UPSC Career
During my medical studies, during my internship, I came to know about UPSC, an exam through which one can become a high-ranking officer. At that time, I didn’t even know what IAS and IPS officers do. Then I understood that even though I didn’t know much about the work of IAS and IPS officers, society considers them highly knowledgeable, and I also want to become an IAS IPS officer. I started preparing for the UPSC exam.
Tanu Jain says that nobody in our family had attempted the UPSC exam, so she didn’t know how to prepare for it. When she told her mother about it, her mother and sister went to Delhi’s Nai Sadak to buy books for UPSC preparation. They brought back a few books from there. Then, with guidance from friends, she prepared for just two months, took the UPSC prelims exam, and passed it.
Tanu Jain’s first attempt
After cracking the UPSC prelims in just two months of preparation, I gained confidence that I could become an IAS. But due to inadequate preparation, I couldn’t pass the main exam in the first attempt. That failure forced me to think about what mistakes I was making that I couldn’t pass the main exam. I corrected those mistakes and started self-assessment.
Tanu Jain’s second attempt
Tanu Jain says that she corrected all the mistakes and tried again. This time, I succeeded in both prelims and mains. At that time, I thought that now I would pass the UPSC interview easily because I understand national and international issues well. I have been participating in debates and competitions since school. In the first interview, I scored only 151 marks. However, I was selected.
Tanu Jain’s third attempt
Tanu Jain says that I made a third attempt. In the second attempt, I had corrected the mistakes of the main exam, and similarly, in the third attempt, I tried to bring more marks in the interview. For this, the candidate should follow any ideal officer. Learn something from their personality. What is their way of talking? How do they keep any conversation with facts?
Dr. Tanu Jain says that many people think that UPSC interviewers often ask the candidates questions like ‘How many buttons are there on your shirt?’, ‘Which came first, the egg or the chicken?’, and ‘How many steps have you climbed?’ If you think that all these questions are asked in the UPSC interview, then the answer is no. UPSC panels do not ask such questions. It is different that if a candidate has answered all the questions well, then occasionally a panel may ask such questions in terms of their awareness.
