HYDERABAD:Perseverance and patience are the qualities needed to crack Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) examinations, said youngsters who made it to civil services in 2014.

“Never get disappointed and keep preparing with patience. Prepare a plan and stick to it.

“I hail from a Scheduled Caste (SC) family and my father used to stitch slippers. My family had to struggle a lot to educate me but I knew we have to work hard. I had the motivation to make it to the Indian Administrative Service so that I can alleviate the poverty of scores of poor people belonging to our community,” said Vinod Kumar.

Lakshmikanth Reddy G, an IIM graduate, who scored 21st rank in the first attempt, told the aspirants to have their own strategy keeping individual strengths and weaknesses into consideration.
