Shrestha Anupam was interested in literature and history but after the 12th exam he ended up preparing for JEE. He got a much lower JEE rank than expected and got admitted as a Chemical Engineering student at IIT Delhi. He had no interest in any Chemical Engineering course. Hence tried for dept change, but plans of Depc vanished in thin air.
Finally, Shrestha Anupam decided to prepare for UPSC Civil Services Examination. He researched a lot on how to crack the exam, the question pattern, requirements etc. He set effective goals, hard-worked with dedication and achieved success in the goal.
Shrestha Anupam Shares His Overall Strategy
Today, many parents don’t allow their children to select and study subjects related to the choice of their interest and skills. Instead of allowing them to choose the right career of their choice, parents force children to study courses which they think is best for their future. Parents of Shrestha Anupam allowed him to choose the career of his choice and that is the most important factor for his success. It would be better if parents allow their children to select the career of their interest.
