Arif Arsalan who cracked Civil Services Exam this year ranking 74 is a product of Jamia Millia Islamia School. He studied at Jamia’s Residential Coaching Academy and was among 26 candidates who cracked the Union Public Service Commission’s (UPSC) Civil Services examination.
In an event held on the school campus on Friday, Arif, originally from Gaya, was honoured. He completed his BTech from Jamia. An engineering student, Arif took Urdu as one paper, said a source.
Arif wants to join the IAS and said: “Initially, I tried studying on my own. But later I joined the coaching centre at Jamia, which was really beneficial.” The centre has been churning out civil servants year after year following the hard work put in by its deputy director Mohammad Tarique, who is also a Jamia alumnus.
Earlier, in a statement issued by the university, Vice-Chancellor Talat Ahmad had said: “Many of our students come from the economically weaker sections of society. They have proved that given an opportunity and guidance they can deliver their best.”
Currently, the coaching academy issued a notice and said: “Applications are invited for Free Coaching (with hostel facility) for Civil Services (Main-cum Personality Test) 2017 for Minorities, SC, ST, and Women candidates.
