Remember the legend of PIED PIPER OF HAMELIN. He lures 130 children of the town away….The world of UPSC Civil Services Exam preparation is replete with such inducements, lures and false often exaggerated promises. The aspirants face many a dilemma. The tremendous prestige of the examination has created an aura about the examination and given rise to many half-baked truths, which heighten the sense of awe.
When it comes to career choices, the Civil Services of India has always been considered the best career choice for graduates! CSE paves the way for becoming an IAS, IPS, IFS, IRS (20+ jobs/services) officer. The wide variety of jobs within the ambit of the Civil Services offer greater sphere of authority and power than any other services in India. Civil services offer the rare opportunity to satisfy personal ambition as well as indulge in social welfare.
This result has led to a few hundreds achieving their dream of seeing their name in the final list and the remaining thousand shocked, surprised, saddened depending on the expectations they had. One might have expected a top 100 rank and still found no name in the list and the other might have ended up with a top 100 rank when least expected. In this exam, from the preliminary to the final list, at each stage, lakhs of aspirants look forward with a lot of hope and expectations, but looking at the limited seat availability, the cut throat competition and various other factors, the degree of disappointment is bound to be very high.
