I am Padmanabh Baruah. I graduated in Mechanical Engineering from IIT Guwahati in 2013. I started working in an MNC after my graduation and worked there for about 5 months. After that I went home and stayed for 6 months. It was during this period that I started thinking about what career option I should undertake. After much thinking and deliberation, I came to the conclusion that I would try to get into the Indian Civil Services and it was from here that my journey for Civil Services start.

Test Series along with practice helps in finding out your strong and weak areas.
I chose Mathematics because of two reasons. First, since childhood I have loved maths. Second, I did my BTech and masters in computer science but computer science is not an optional and the closest optional where I could use my knowledge of computer science was maths. Maths is a great optional and once you have covered syllabus decently, you can expect basic minimum marks of 220 which are not guaranteed in humanities optionals.

VENKANNA, Sir of the Institute of Mathematical Sciences it become a lot earlier and some sort of fun.
