A candid chat with Raunak Agarwal, AIR 13, UPSC 2019 | UNHERD: Civilsdaily’s Topper series | Video inside

Dear students,

You all know Raunak Agarwal, the topper, AIR 13 in UPSC CSE 2019. But do you know how he thinks, what his thought process is and how he executes?

Raunak Agarwal here in a frank conversation with Sukanya ma’am from Civilsdaily shared his thought process which drove him to AIR 13 in UPSC 2019. He even revealed many of his UPSC hacks ranging from 10 mins nap to the Prelims Grid system and more. Raunak was kind enough to share his poem on Women Empowerment as well (and yes he is awesome). Watch the video to know more about him.

About Raunak Agarwal:

He is academically accomplished, a topper throughout, he scored AIR 5 in CA finals, AIR 2 in IPCC, AIR 10 in CPT. Raunak is a B.Com graduate (of course, a gold medalist) from St. Xavier, Kolkata with an all-time highest CGPA (yeah that is still a record). He hails from Kolkata and will now be serving the country as an IAS. Raunak is an essayist, poet, and has been a teacher as well.

Civilsdaily is proud of Raunak and wishes him the very best for his future.
