Student Talks: Toppers & Revivers

“Born in a low-income family, I had no financial support from my family to pursue my dreams after class 12. I used to read the newspaper for the advertisement of UP Police Constable Bharti. I never stopped my physical training; my father helped me during the morning training sessions where I sprint for 10 km daily. I was weak in general knowledge, so I developed a habit of reading and writing down daily current affairs from newspapers and various online sources to improve my general awareness. I analysed the aptitude and reasoning syllabus and began to solve the questions from different books. Gradually, my confidence started to increase after months of preparation for written & physical tests. I appeared for UP Police Constable 2019, and got selected in the first attempt. I was not prepared at the beginning for the exam, but with my consistent hard work and dedication, I was able to qualify and pass the exam.”

– Saurabh Kumar, UP Police Constable, 2019
