Who is Ankita Chaudhary?

Chaudhary scored well in Class 12th Board Examinations and ended up at the Hindu College, University of Delhi from where she graduated in Chemistry.


She shares that she developed an inclination towards the civil services during her college days itself but she didn't appear for the exam until after her post-graduation was completed.

She appeared for the Civil Services Examinations for the first time in 2017, but failed in the first attempt.


After finishing her master's degree and failing in the first attempt, Chaudhary started preparing for the services in a full-fledged and more dedicated manner.

Her Mother's Sudden Demise

But while preparations itself, her mother died in a road accident. Chaudhary was left shocked due to her mother's sudden demise. She lost all inspiration for sometime to study and sit for exams.


But Chaudhary's father Satyavan urged his daughter to work hard in her mom's memory. Her father, who is accountant in a sugar mill in Rohtak, pushed her to pursue her preparations once again.

Encouraged by her father, she did not give and geared up for the upcoming UPSC exams.
