FAMILY AND EDUCATIONAL BACKGROUND

JagrIti is a resident of Bhopal. Jagriti’s father, Professor Dr. SC Awasthi, is a professor in the Government Medical College of Homeopathy, while her mother Madhulata Awasthi is a housewife. Madhulata herself was a teacher but she left her job for the sake of children’s education.She completed her BTech from Maulana Azad National Institute of Technology (MANIT) in Bhopal and joined Bharat Heavy Electricals Ltd (BHEL). She decided to leave her job at Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited and dedicate her entire focus to preparing for UPSC CSE.

WHY CIVIL SERVICES

JagrIti wanted to be an engineer initially and started her career as an electrical engineer, but then she realised she wanted to do something more meaningful and contribute in her own little way to the society. She realised civil services was best suited for this, and therefore she took the plunge to become a civil servant.

NUMBER OF ATTEMPTS

This was JagrIti’s second attempt. After failing in her first attempt, she analyzed where she went wrong and how to improve. Soon, Awasthi understood the gaps in her preparation and started preparing accordingly. She gave herself time to comprehend the syllabus of UPSC and understand the types of questions that are asked.

STUDY PLAN AND SCHEDULE

Awasthi left her job at a time when the COVID-19 pandemic started and the nation was in lockdown. However, Awashti stood dedicated and took this time to prepare for the exam. While Awasthi did go to Delhi to prepare for the exam, she had to come back due to the prevailing COVID-19 scenario in the country. Initially, she studied for 8 to 10 hours. Eventually, she increased it to 10 to 12 hours, and about two months before the exam, she further pushed it to 12 to 14 hours. There are lots of online tutorials, notes, however, Awasthi said in an interview that 90% of contribution in the exam would come from one's hard work.

OVERALL JOURNEY

It wasn't an easy journey for Awasthi. During her hard times, she mentioned that it was per parents and brother who supported and motivated her.

ADVICE FOR FUTURE ASPIRANTS

For those who want to crack UPSC, Awasthi has suggested that they should at first go through the subjects in a detailed way and appear for several mock tests once the exam is approaching.
