Dhiman, son of a school teacher father and housemaker mother, got the 482 rank in the exam, aims to work for education in his native state. “There is almost negligible participation of students from Tripura when it comes to UPSC Civil Services,” Dhiman told Education Times. According to him, the geographical disadvantage is the biggest barrier for students from his state.
“Now, as an administrative officer, I would like to focus on issues concerning education in Tripura. Students are not aware about various opportunities about preparation of competitive exam. They need to be apprised through various talk sessions and discussions through offline or online mode,” says Dhiman.
“The preparation journey was not so easy as I had to balance between job and preparation,” says Dhiman, a Computer Science graduate from NIT Agartala, who is a promoter of focused, consistent, and balanced study. This is the mantra to clear Civil Service Exam or any other competitive exams. He adds that staying motivated and working on one’s shortcomings is equally important while preparing for the exam. Last year, he secured All India Rank 722 in the UPSC CSE.
For Civil Services exam 2020, out of total 761 candidates, 545 are male and 261 are female candidates. This year, Bihar boy Shubham Kumar has topped the exam, while Jagrati Awasthi, Ankita Jain, Yash Jaluka and Mamta Yadav secured second, third, fourth and fifth ranks, respectively.
