Divya Mittal, the District Magistrate (DM) of Mirzapur in Uttar Pradesh, recently shared on Twitter her insider tips for passing the entrance exams for the Institutes of Technology (IIT), Indian Institutes of Management (IIM), and UPSC, which led to her appointment as an IAS officer.

According to Divya Mittal, in order to achieve their goals and give their preparation for the IIT, IIM, and UPSC top priority, one must remain committed and motivated. Every week, review your phone usage and the apps you used. You frequently aren’t even aware of how much time you are wasting on mobile apps, according to Divya Mittal.

In her thread’s conclusion, Divya Mittal stated that although her advice may appear straightforward, consistently putting it into practice can have a significant impact on reaching academic objectives.
