The news that seven students coached at Jamia Millia Islamia (JMI) have made it to the Civil Services (Main) Examinations, 2011, spread like wildfire on the university campus and social networking sites, including Facebook, with many talking about it.
Many students were seen debating over the news animatedly over dinner at Alama Iqbal hostel. Those stationed in far places congratulated students for making it big.
Munesh Kumar, MSC Bio-chemistry student of JMI, was in a jubilant mood. He said: “Since evening I have been asking my friends about how many students did qualify. I am happy to know that seven students have cracked the most prestigious exams. Hope that more will do it next year.”
Another student Shahzad Khan, a research scholar, praised JMI vice-chancellor Najeeb Jung for guiding the students. It is understood that Jung, a former IAS officer, led the team of a panel which conducted the mock interviews for these candidates.
“It makes my happy to know that seven students have made it big. I want more students to follow suit. These students are my role model,” Khan said.
Mass Communication student Alamullah too was happy with the outcome. He said: “Such positive results boost students’ morale.”
Right now most of the students are busy in their final exam preparation. But since the outbreak of the news, they have been talking about their seniors’ achievements.
