How to crack world’s toughest examinations | ROMAN SAINI | TEDxJUIT

  • Published on Nov 21, 2014
  • This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. The talk, given by Roman Saini is about his journey till now and the way he cracked some of the world’s toughest examinations. He emphasizes on extremely low acceptance ratio in prestigious Indian examinations. Making a mention of the importance of being risk friendly, he then goes on to explain how each one of us has the capability to achieve greatness but we are afraid to take that one step. He believes that luck is a probability and describes how each one of us has equal chances of succeeding at it. His deduction exhibits competence is more impactful than just having confidence. He is of the opinion that delayed gratification and Roman’s Rituals have helped him a lot in life.Finally, he ends the talk with a song.
    “I believe we can achieve anything if we really want it. For me there were no external benchmarks to conquer. I have done everything that I really enjoyed doing. I play guitar as I love music not because I aspire to go to Trinity College in England. Medicals, civil services to now giving back to millions of UPSC candidates - all these have been
    internal drives.”-are the words of a prodigy who cracked AIIMS at 16, Indian Administrative Services (IAS) at 22 and even holds a degree for music from Trinity College and is now helping IAS aspirants via Unacademy. Featured in Your Story, he feels everyone has the capability to pursue their dreams; all they need is to understand it well. The driving force for him is his quest to constantly learn and his hunger for knowledge which has made him go on and on and on.

    content is good but maybe he could reduce the self-boasting stuff...he has achieved something great in life but not as great as he thinks....I've never seen even a world shaker...self proclaiming so much...that's overconfidence

    I respect you bro, you are way above our league, but what I feel is you were a confused lad from teenage years, you did mbbs, then JR psychiatry than you did IAS, which you reject for unacademy, I can clearly feel you learnt the hard way for what you want to do in life, and now you are motivating young minds to be clear about their passion and should put all their hardwork and determination, hats off to you

    I don't understand why there are 4.2 K dislikes on the vedio. It was his first time addressing this level of crowd as he mentioned in the vedio, so he might get a little loud or walk to tackle stage fear.

    This man is confused about life?
    1)cracked aiims but don't want to be a doctor.
    2)cracked ias but left.
    Actually he is just going with the crowd and by god's grace doing well.
    If he had only one goal and focused on it . He would be successful at par....

      Kanchan Dev Malik there is nothing as God’s grace, it’s his own hard work and dedication. He is a true seeker of knowledge. Also no confused person achieved this magnitude of success in his/her life. It’s just the fact that he wants to do something different and big. Bigger than upsc. And here he is with the largest online educational platform in India. And the odds of becoming like him are 1/10000000 even less than that of an IAS
