Elated by her success, Sharma said she was confident about qualifying the UPSC exam but topping the merit list came as a ‘pleasant surprise’. Sharma wants to serve the country by joining the Indian Administration Services (IAS).

Sharma said while preparing for civil services she used to make her own notes with the help of newspapers. She used to focus on practice for better presentation and writing answers.

Sharma said she will accept whatever responsibilities given to her, through her personal interest is in education and women empowerment.

Sharma said the syllabus of the UPSE is very large and exhausting, and a proper strategy is required to crack it. The candidate should not only prepare his/her own notes but he/she should revise them also. Patience is a must for UPSE candidates.

The mother of Shruti Sharma said,” She is very happy with her achievement. This is all the result of her (Shruti’s) hard work. She was always busy with her studies. We used to ask her to take some rest and sleep. She was very less active on social media.”

A total of 685 candidates have been shortlisted for IAS, IPS, IFS and many other branches of the civil services under the Central Government of India. 244 of these successful candidates are from the general category, 73 from EWS, 203 from OBC, 105 from SC and 60 from ST category. All the top four ranks are captured by female candidates.
