Today we will talk about the inspiring story of Prince Kumar Singh from Bihar, who cracked several government examinations without any coaching. He passed the UPSC examination and is set to join work as an IFS officer. 

He is a native of Rohtas, Bihar. His father is a Havildar in Assam Rifles, while his mother is a housewife. Prince did his schooling in Bhabua in the Kaimur district. He then studied B Tech in Chemical Engineering at NIT Jalandhar, Punjab. He finished his graduation in 2020 after which he joined a chemical company in Gujarat. 

He worked there for around 8 months and then resigned in 2021 to prepare for the UPSC examination. Prince prepared for two years and successfully cracked several government job examinations. He cleared the SSC CGL 2022 and BPSC exams before clearing the UPSC examination. He also cracked the written exam of CAPF AC twice but failed to make it to the final list. Then he passed the UPSC 2023 examination.

Thereafter, Prince cleared UPSC IFS in this third attempt with AIR 15. He mentioned that due to some financial constraints, he couldn’t afford coaching. He said in an interview, “I could not afford the coaching fees of UPSC as the fees were beyond my budget. I did my preparation with the help of the internet and the previous year’s question. I joined the coaching afterwards just before the UPSC interview.”He added that he didn’t have money to shift to Delhi to prepare for the examination.

Currently, Prince is undergoing training as a Block Development Officer (BDO) in Bihar. Thereafter, he will travel to Lal Bahadur Shastri National Academy Of Administration, Mussoorie for IFS officer training.
