Amandeep Dhanoa, 28, from Bathinda, bagged 311th rank in the civil services exam conducted by the Union Public Service Commission (UPSC), result of which was declared on Friday.
A bachelor of technology in mechanical engineering from Birla Institute of Technology and Science, Pilani, Rajasthan, she cracked the exam in her third attempt.
Elated over her success she said: “Having missed clearing the examination by 11 and nine marks in my previous two attempts, my parents and I felt, at one point, that I am not destined to clear the exam. But I was determined and carried on with my preparations.”
“After completing BTech, I worked with a US firm in Chennai for two years. But I felt that the company might send me abroad which I never wanted to do. So I quit and started preparing for the civil services,” she said.
She said that though she is satisfied with her performance, she will continue to work hard to improve her rank next time. She is hopeful of getting selected in Indian Revenue Services.
