Arif Arsalan needs no introduction at least in Jamia Millia Islamia. An alumnus of Jamia, Arif cracked Civil Services Exam this year ranking 74. A pass-out of Jamia School, Arif last week was invited by the school management to interact with the students and share his success story.
Moreover, the management also felicitated him for his milestone achievement. Basically from Gaya, Arif also studied engineering at Jamia and after that he started preparation for India’s most difficult Civil Services Exam. He got coaching at Jamia’s Residential Coaching Academy.
Despite the centre on the campus, the participation of Jamia students is abysmal, according to sources. This year too only two students were from Jamia and hence many alumni strongly feel that there is urgent need to launch an awareness campaign among Jamia students how to benefit from the academy on the campus and crack Civil Services.
The UGC-run academy provides free coaching to minorities and woman candidates.
