Developing a Topper’s Mindset for UPSC 2024-25- Insights from a Seasoned UPSC Interviewer| Gautam Mohakul, Deputy Controller of Accounts

Practical Insights from Gautam sir, (Guided 2000+ UPSC Rankers) and reorient your UPSC 2024-25 strategy

What makes a UPSC topper? Is it the countless hours of study, the meticulous note-making, luck? or something else entirely?

How is it that some aspirants take multiple attempts—3, 4, even 6—struggling year after year, while very few of them manage to top the UPSC exam in their very first attempt?

The journey to cracking the UPSC exams is a tale of ambition, perseverance, and a relentless pursuit of excellence. It’s not just an academic marathon but also a test of your mental fortitude, character, emotional intelligence and ability to stay calm under extreme pressure.

With over 13 lakh aspirants applying each year and only a handful making it to the finish line, one can’t help but wonder what sets the toppers apart. Could it be luck, or is there a specific mindset and strategy that ensures success?

Understanding how to excel in one of India’s most challenging exams goes beyond hard work. It demands strategic planning, emotional intelligence, and above all, insights from those who’ve been there, and done that.

This is where experts like Gautam Mohakul sir, Civil Servant with 7 yrs of experience in the administration and a seasoned UPSC interviewer, come into play. With a wealth of experience and an intimate understanding of the UPSC interview process, Gautam Sir has become a guiding light for countless UPSC aspirants. He has invaluable experience in helping candidates develop a winning mindset.

Gautam sir’s wisdom is not just theoretical; nearly 90% of those who appear for UPSC interviews take mock interviews under his guidance.
