Mr. Senthil Murugesh tasted his first success in SSC CGL as CBI Officer
Soon after Graduating in 2015, like most others I took up a career in a corporate setup. It just took me a few months to realize that this is not something I wanted to do. I wanted to do something exciting, a role that gives me new challenges every day. I quit my corporate job. Amidst a huge sea of friends leaving the country for higher studies on one side, friends with a routine nine to five corporate job on the other side, I found myself jobless. This phase of my life is what made me strong. I was looking out for options and ‘what next’, I got a phone call from my uncle who gave me inputs about the SSC exam on the last day of notification which I didn’t know, so planned to look into that the next day but the notification date was over and I felt bad for missing out on it. The extension of application for SSC came like a bolt from the blue and I was very fortunate to apply for the exam during that extension period. I was wondering “what and how to prepare”, then I chanced upon RACE coaching Institute on June 15, 2016 and there’s no looking back from there on.
“You have to dream before your dreams can come true. Climbing to the top demands strength, whether it is to the top of Mount Everest or to the top of your career”.
These words from the great Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam kept me going and I kept pushing myself during this phase.
After enduring a journey filled with difficulties for about 1 year, here I come with my head held high for getting selected as SI in CBI. On my way there were lot of obstacles but I never left any stone unturned, thanks to the three P’s (perseverance patience persistence) which I had within myself.
Thanks to my Dad, Mom and Brother for constantly supporting me and having faith in my efforts which enabled me achieve this amazing feat. Thanks to GOD almighty who has graced my life with lot of opportunities.
I take this wonderful opportunity to thank Race Academy for its unparalleled coaching. Special thanks to Kamal Sir who has been the there day in day out motivating and guiding me, Parthasarathy sir who was my first circle mentor from whom I learnt a lot. I am highly thankful to all those mentors without whom I couldn’t have attained this level. I also would like to extend my deepest gratitude to Umesh sir for dazzling not only me but everyone with his tricks in aptitude which was very much constructive for aptitude preparation (Thanks to Kamal Sir for arranging such special sessions which enlightened us with cognisant). A special thanks to my fun filled teammates at RACE (Karthik (Navy), Jayan, Akkini, Jayanth, Pradeep, Selva, and Vignesh) who always motivated me and been there from the start of this wonderful journey. I am extremely obliged to have other aspirants who were master of every section with whom I competed, which empowered me to thrive for more and deep-rooted knowledge. I couldn’t have achieved this without the constant support and guidance of all of you. I will continue to keep looking up to all from constant support and motivations. I need your well wishes.
This isn’t the end, this is just a preface to the next phase of my life.
All the very best to current aspirants who have been working laboriously for success in SSC CGL 2017. A kind piece of advice from a true Race‘Ian, have three things in mind always
– look forward to something
– look up to something
– have someone to chase (that’s you in coming years)
