@tedmosby how are you? Hope you are not drinking 3 stings a day!

Oh hey!@London 
I am good. Couldn't sleep the night before Pre so drank Redbull (instead of Sting xD) + black coffee.
What about you? Anxious about the results?!

@Neyawn Nhi hua sir. 5 attempts gone. Never cleared prelims once. Maybe, I know what went wrong. Maybe,I don't. Lot's of regrets. Itna optional/gs mains pda kbhi likhney ka mauka hi nhi mila. Mila kya, mauka banaya hi nhi...

@seesat This is my last attempt and I will be free after Forest Mains. Get in touch with me after November and I think I shall be able to help. I guess just like some people have figured out mains hacks, I have developed some intuitive sense about prelims (5/5 Forest pre). So I will be glad if this could be of someone's help. But I will be busy till November. So I can only help you after that.

@Jokar Thank you so much for this. Should I message you in November here only?
I am planning to give forest exam also from next year. I understand you will be super busy these days; but if you could just point out where to look for forest mains statregy, it will be really helpful.

One of my regrets in prelims all these years is that I could never start exclusive prelims preparation even 3 months before the exam in any of the attempts. Every time, the mains of state psc would interfere and I'd ride on two boats.

Thank you once again for offering help. I wish you all the very best for this attempt.

Hey everyone, seeing ki kisi ne abhi tak result ka kuch significant comment nahi kiya let me kick things off. I’m not clearing, this was my last attempt. Most people here might not remember me (or my bread puns) but I have been a longtime member of Forum and have been keeping a low profile for the past two attempts. I had sincerely hoped that this attempt would be “the attempt”, especially given that I have many friends who are in service already. I had hoped that it wouldn’t be much longer before I had the coveted three letters before my name as well. But if anything, I have learnt equanimity from giving this exam. I know will never have “another attempt, another mains, another fact sheet to memorise” but that’s just life. It’s neither bad, nor good, it just is. Life just goes on (a cruel thought to some and perhaps a comfort to others). So for me too life will go on, however this is a chapter I shall lay to rest.

To those who are still giving their attempts and are still in this exam process, hang in there. This exam will eat away from you, if you let it. It is your responsibility to yourself to not let it become anything more that what it is, an exam. Many people will try to convince you otherwise (particularly coachings) but it isn’t. At the end of the day it is another exam for another government job, which comes with its fair share of good and bad days, just like any other government job. I say this because as I currently type this message I’m sitting in a small village in Karnataka which has zero network but the most stunning views. Some of the most deprived tribal learners but also the most inane school politics that revolve around “kis teacher ko kaunsa staffroom mila”. So keep your head up and never let this exam limit you, in terms of how you view yourself, or how you view success.


Before I sign off, I have a lot of good people to thank, those who have stood by me and my seemingly endless journey. Firstly, my parents who have been subject to the process without any complaints and much choice. We do not realise it but our parents suffer as much if not more. My friends outside the UPSC circle who have been patient with my eccentric schedule and my lame excuses for not being able to meet (unke liye missing a hangout to attempt a test is quite lame- as it should be :p). My friends in the UPSC circle, my fellow comrades forged out of shared pains and joys @sstarrr @Steph_Curry @Rashmirathi @HeNeArKr @AzadHindFauz @Celeborn @Infinitybeyondinfinity @Jammu @KingSlayer23 and other veterans who have moved on to other wonderful things. As well as to the wonderful teachers who have helped me get as far as I got. I am yet to meet a teacher with the kind of insane work ethic that Dipin sir possesses. Most of all, thanks to Forum, for helping me find a space of my own, my friends, but more importantly for helping me fall in love with the prep journey all over again when i was feeling untethered and adrift. 

It’s not quite the sign-off I was expecting, but for one last time, let’s get this bread!

In for my 5th Attempt and 3rd Mains. (I was scoring 100 in P1 and 90 in P2 by the Forum answer key). 

I will call myself "lucky enough" to clear this Prelims as today I saw many candidates with the same scoring range to be in or out of the list which includes some of my friends. I am shocked, to say the least, because I have been on that side. I know precisely how it feels to fail Prelims. I just hope this process was a little less cruel and a little less opaque. 

This process has been mentally taxing for me which is why I couldn't sleep for two days before Prelims. I wrote both the papers in that 45-46 degrees hot exam hall in Delhi. I was severely dehydrated during my first paper. Still I kept my cool and just implemented my strategy. I did not deviate a bit. So yes, I was nervous about not getting in this time because the paper was seemingly easier than Pre 2023 and people were predicting that cutoff will be high. I started for Mains prep just a day after I reached home on 18th anyhow.  

Seeing my roll number in the list was a small psychological victory for me. Those who know me precisely know what this meant for me. But not seeing some of my friends too in the list gives me immense pain. I was preparing for Mains 2024 along with them. I know one should think about themselves in this exam but seeing your friends sad because of this one cruel exam is unbearable. But yes it's not the time to get emotional and I know we need to get back to work. 

To those who qualified, congratulations. This is just the beginning. The real battle is yet to start. For those couldn't, I precisely know how that feels. I just hope you guys clear it next time, my best wishes are with you. I don't think I am competent enough to comment on people who have exhausted their attempts. I just wish you the best and I hope you make it big in your life.  

Rest assured, I will try my best to implement my Mains strategy (Working on it consistently since I gave Mains 2023) and hopefully get out of this cycle. It has been nearly 6.5 yrs since I started this prep (by self-study) and I just hope that my strategy for this exam works out this time. 

All the best to everyone! :)

Dear Bread!!


I have known you for the past 3 years now. I have always admired your resilience and 'laughing in the face of adversity' waala attitude and will always do. You are among my first friends at Forum and our bond will stay forever. That's for sure.


I don't know what to say except for the fact that this exam, while significant, does not define our worth or the incredible potential we possess. Our efforts have not been in vain; the knowledge and skills we've gained along the way will always remain with us. Life often has a way of guiding us towards paths we never imagined but which ultimately lead to very fulfilling and rewarding destinations. This result is just a new chapter waiting to unfold for you.



You have inspired me and so many others in ways you don't even know. 


Thank you for everything! The screenshot below is from my notes (from sometime in 2021).












With warmest regards and love! 

Steph Curry (Utkarsh)
