Where we have been hearing till date that to succeed in this difficult exam, the candidate has to do one day and night and have to study for 14 to 16 hours a day, while Poonam Dahiya believes that the hours are not regular It is important to study. They believe that even after studying for 6 to 7 hours a day, this test can be passed provided the studies are done regularly. 

Read less but read daily, this trick according to them is useful for preparing for this exam. Poonam of Jhajjar district of Haryana always studied on this formula and also achieved success.

She says even if you read 6 hours but read daily.

Even after this, his mind was not filled, his dreams were much bigger. In such a situation, Poonam took the UPSC examination for the first time at the age of 28 years. He was selected but due to low rank he got railway (RPF), he was not interested in it. He took the exam again and passed it for the second time as well, but once again he got second service (IRPS) in Railways due to rank. She became an IRS officer for the third time.


The journey of UPSC was over once 

Poonam told in an interview that in 2011, she gave this exam for the third time and could not pass the pre-exam. From here, his journey to UPSC was over. After this, he passed Haryana Civil Services and got a job in Haryana Police. But luck had something else approved. After a few years, he received a notice stating that since there were some changes in the exam syllabus of UPSC in the year 2011, the candidates of that year will be given one more chance to take the exam.

Poonam's life took Uterne just from here. Cashing the opportunity given by this notice, he took the exam again in the year 2015 and was selected. The commendable thing is that when Poonam took the pre exam, she was nine months pregnant at the time and her son was two and a half months old when she gave the mens exam. But for whatever reason she did not stop and became an IRS officer after getting a good rank. Poonam says that the most important to pass this exam is self-confidence.
