I can make a movie on clearing my ssc cgl 2013. it has suspense, thrill, sadness and ful of sentiments.
When mains result came, i was expecting my score to be 421.25 and the cutoff was 424.50. I was very sad as 1 year was about to be ruined and i knew that it will gonna cost me alot such as leaving my family for the Other job.
But when the marks came, believe it or not i was getting 424.25. I asked myself what the ****. I failed the iview cutoff with the mere margin of 0.25. I was laughing and crying at the same time.
It took me 2 days to become normal and meanwhile i was planning for a backup for statistical investigator post 4200 grade pay as i was eligible for that.
After a week,everything went to normal when something AmAZING happened. SSC revised it result, dont know why but they reduced the cutoff to 420. And i was selected for interview. Believe me i was totally dumbstruck and thought to myself that what the hell is happening with me.
I thought to myself that suraj, you have got this great chance and you cant leave this oppourtunity, from that day i hv tried to do everything possible within my range to excel the interview. So i gave the interview and was not sure how it went.
So, i still remember the day or night. Result was predicted to be published at midnight. I waited and waited and finally slept at 12.30, woke up at 5.30, saw so many missed calls on my phone, as it was not normal for me. I have got an idea that result might have come. First thing i did that i prayed to god and said that pls, just for once dont disappoint me this time, i dont want to wait 1 more year for my dream post.
Opened the result, it was suraj pandey 2201141953 post A.
I watched again, again and again. Well i again cried, but this time it was different. I knew that finally so many failures lead to the sucess. My hard work finally paid off. No more complains from this life.
To that day to this day, i still feel proud not because i am working in ministry but because i believed in myself.
The only thing that is changed “now people listen to me” may be due to sucess/ may be not.
