He went to AIIMS Delhi to further pursue his MBBS degree, where he also worked as a junior resident doctor.
When Roman went to medical camps, especially in poverty-stricken areas, seeing the genuinely poor faces of our country made him realise that something had to be done to uplift the society. So he decided to leave the medical profession and started preparing for civil services to solve issues from the grass-root level.
We all are aware of the fact that civil service exams are one of the most challenging exams in India, and millions of people clear this test at the rate of nearly 0.1% only. However, Roman Saini cleared this exam at the age of 22! After six months of working at NDDTC in Psychiatry, he resigned and decided to give his UPSC exams. He became the youngest IAS officer who was then appointed as a collector in Madhya Pradesh. When it came to studying resources for UPSC, he went for the Vajiram material and test series.
Medical science (optional subject) also helped him a lot. He followed the mantra, where he believed that one could achieve anything they want by overcoming the limits.

Roman Saini’s Mains Strategy
Roman Saini suggests – “As time is less, write in a precise manner instead of outdoing your introduction or answers or any diagrams for the record. To get into under that top 100 category, you must attempt at least 95% of questions.
You must be aware that UPSC isn’t much about depth or details, so don’t waste time on that. It’s better to keep a few keywords handy so that you can complete the word limit in a given time. You must have a command of your vocabulary and grammar!”
It is difficult to become an IAS as the interviewer analyses you from every angle possible. Roman Saini made some personal notes for the interview and gave a few mock interviews which helped him a lot during the final one, which lasted for 49 minutes. An impressive presentation of oneself matters a lot to set a good impression in these interviews. So, for the interview, Roman went for the light blue shirt with black pants and black shoes along with the most crucial ingredient ‘Confidence.’
To achieve anything, one must have some discipline and rules in their life. These principles make us distinct from the rest of the crowd. Roman led his life through some necessary code of conduct like not drinking or smoking, having a healthy diet, proper and sound sleep of 7 to 8 hours, and exercising daily. This routine helped him increase his cognitive powers and be more focused on his goals. During his journey, he learned many values and morals:
– It becomes your responsibility to make life decisions; otherwise, someone else will!
– Complaining about any irrationality won’t take you anywhere better; instead, it will just lower your level.
– Confidence only comes with an enormous amount of practice, but you can always have competence.
– A ship in the harbour is no good until it’s left on the water; similarly, one must at least take some calculated amount of risks in their life.
– Forget whatever everyone has ever said to you when you decide to give UPSC.
– Luck does matter, but you are lucky enough to get loads of information and knowledge, just a single touch away from the screen. So make the most of it.
