The declaration of the results of SSC CGL 2017 brought the time for celebrations in the lives of many candidates waiting for the results. Many students of Adda247 also got selected in the same and it gives us immense joy to hear from them and be a part of their success. We are glad to share one such success story with the candidates who are going to appear in the future. This is the story of Akash Jain, who got selected as a Divisional Accountant in C&AG with AIR 1230. Check out his journey in his own words as given below:
“This is Akash Jain (UR category), I was selected in MTS and joined as a Watchman in CSD Depot Bathinda. I appeared for IB ACIO 2 interview but could not make it in the final list, I have also qualified SSC CPO tier1 but did not appear for the physical exam. Through SSC CGL 2017, I have secured a post of Divisional Accountant in C&AG. My marks in CGL17 are 555 and rank 1230.
I was an average student in my school time. In 12th class, I bunked my board exam of chemistry, I gave compartment exam and somehow passed the intermediate with 68% marks. Then, it was the time to take admission in college but I didn’t get admission in any good college because of my low percentage marks. So I decided to quit my studies and started helping my father in his business but later I understood that in our business there is no good scope in the town. I told my father that I want to study further and pursue engineering.
He asked me to do whatever I want to do and helped me get admission in a private college. After the completion of my engineering, I got no job placement from the college. I was standing at the same stage as I was 4 years ago. Again, my father helped me and managed to provide me a private job. I was not satisfied with the job, it was a technical job but was a night shift and low paid job. So, I decided to quit the job and again got supported by my family.
Now, I was a jobless graduate student and I had to take an important decision of my life i.e what to do next ? So I thought of competitive exams and started preparing for them. I didn’t get success at once so I thought of taking coaching classes. I told my father about this. Initially, they refused but when I forced them they supported my decision. I lived in Delhi for one year and my only passion was to study and grab a job for myself. Along with my parents, my teachers and friends, Adda247 played a crucial role in my selection. Whenever I used to get free and wanted to spend my time on mobile, I just opened the Adda247 App and started solving quizzes. The short quizzes of 10 or 15 questions helped in every subject especially in maths where it helped me in increasing my speed & accuracy. In these quizzes you get 1 reward point for 1 correct answer & my total reward points are 32653. So one can imagine how much I was addicted to this application.”
