Coming from a weak financial background I always thought that UPSC preparation was a distant reality. I had lost all hope for UPSC preparation till I came across UPSC Pathshala on the internet. Once I filled the basic form, I connected with Deepak.
Deepak sent me another form which contained many subjective questions. These questions made me really think. However, that is when I realised that pursuing UPSC too is not going to be easy. After the form there was further a telephonic interview where I spoke to Akshay sir. He asked more questions and then I got a mail that I had been selected for the scholarship.
I was offered around 55% scholarship which was a huge relief financially. What attracted me the most was the manner in which the selection proceeded. They were very sympathetic and Deepak sir went out of the way to get me enrolled. I would recommend UPSC Pathshala scholarship to all those like me out there. This is a great initiative by UPSC Pathshala.
