AGRIM SAINI – 26th Rank IFoS, 2018

I am AGRIM SAINI. I have recently secured AIR 26 in the Indian Forest Service Examination 2018. This was my second attempt. I studied Zoology and Forestry as my optional subjects.

I am thankful for the entire Manifest IAS team for putting specialised efforts towards IFoS interview by appreciating its slightly different nature than the CSE interview. Read more….



I am very thankful to the Manifest faculty for their help during all stages of my preparation. Mrutyunjay Sir has been very kind to spend time to evaluate my essays and give personalized feedback on how to improve my marks. Discussions with Umesh Sir during Interview helped me understand the process and orient myself according to the requirement. The uniqueness about the faculty in Manifest is their approach towards guiding the aspirants which exactly meets the demand of the exam – B V Vijaya Bharath (Rank 228-CSE 2018) 

GIRISH D KALAGOND – 307th Rank CSE, 2018

I am Girish Kalagond, secured an All India Rank of 307 in the UPSC CSE 2018. When I failed in first two prelims, I was not knowing how to ace through the first hurdle of UPSC. I was staying in Delhi. That’s when I met Mrutyunjay sir as he had come to Delhi to appear in UPSC interview. He told to solve questions with logic and in multiple iterations which I followed. It comprehensively changed my way of approaching the prelims paper and was successful in prelims in my third attempt. Subsequently I kept in touch with Mrutyunjay sir for mains answer writings and essay reviews. He also gave many tips for personality test. Though I had reached up to interview in my third attempt I wasn’t successful. But I didn’t give up. Again I kept in touch with Mrutyunjay sir. He reviewed my GS test copies, essays with patience and identified my shortcomings. And I modified my answer writings accordingly. Mrutyunjay sir was available for guidance whenever I called him at any time without which it would have been difficult to ensure my name in the final list of UPSC. Thanks a lot sir for consistently assisting me in this arduous journey. I wish all the best for the entire Manifest IAS team. – Girish Kalagond (Rank 307-CSE 2018)
