May 31, 2022: Ayushi Kalwar is extremely happy. She says this is the moment she was waiting for. She is happy that she has been able to achieve this and is now “looking forward to doing something for her state (Assam)”.



Ayushi, who hails from Hailakandi in Assam, secured 618 position in the UPSC Civil Services Exam 2021.



Speaking exclusively to DY365, Ayushi said that her father was the inspiration. He has been the inspiration for both her and her sister who is an ACS (Assam Civil Service) officer.



“The dream of getting into Civil Services has always been there. After my sister cleared ACS exams I was even more inspired,” Ayushi, a software engineer said. She worked as a software engineer for about 3 years but left the job because she started to prepare for UPSC. She appeared for ACS exams too and she has got the call for the interview, a beaming Ayushi said.



When asked about how to prepare for UPSC, Ayushi said it usually takes 2-3 years of dedicated preparation. Anyone planning to appear for Civil Service exams has to prepare for minimum 8 months to a year. They should be aware of the exam pattern, the type of questions asked and be focused about the sources (books and study materials) for preparation.
