Students protest UPSC results

A group of students Sunday staged a demonstration at the capitals Jantar Mantar protesting the Union Public Service Commissions (UPSC) civil service exam preliminary results. A candlelight vigil was held by the students who alleged that the results were not fair and blamed the commission of corruption.

Many students with lower scores have made it to the list, while those with higher marks have been left out, said Anurag Tripathi, a PhD scholar from the Jawaharlal Nehru University in Delhi.

The UPSC preliminary exams results were declared last week. The UPSC conducts a three-tier exam yearly for entry into countrys higher administrative services. The students are demanding greater transparency in the procedure of conducting the exam and revelation of the cut-off marks.

I scored 84 in Geography and 56 in General Studies but my name was not in the list, but I know students with lesser marks who have made it to the list, said Kapil, another student from JNU.

Disclosure of marks and the cut-off has been demanded by students in the past as well. The commission has also rejected Right To Information applications demanding the disclosure of marks.

We want the UPSC results to be revised. They dont reveal the information in RTI, there is no transparency, said Ashok Kumar, who has done his masters from Jamia Millia Islamia University.
The students also displayed placards and banners and shouted slogans against the UPSC.

IAS topper gets security in Valey, says not a slumdog millionaire

With even his administrative training period two months away, Kashmirs first Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) examination topper, Shah Faesal (27), has been put under security cover in Kashmir. Two security personnel escort him to all locations he visits in a day. With rims of pages written about Faesal by local newspapers and hours of local television footage devoted to him, the IAS topper has emerged as an iconic figure in the Valley.

I was hugged by waiters in restaurants, who claim to be from my district. I received a number of invitations from organization, coaching centres etc to grace their programmes, said Faesal, who is now fed up with the constant media gaze.
He wishes to return to his pre-IAS topper routine. I want to shuffle back to normalcy now. I have stopped attending any function now, said Faesal.

Local newspapers in Srinagar are full of private advertisements by schools, colleges and organization congratulating the feat achieved by Faesal. I received hundreds of letters. Our official mails are inundated by letters, articles and congratulatory messages from readers, said Ajaz-ul-Haq, edit page editor of local daily Greater Kashmir.Of late, SMS jokes and social networking groups have been created to felicitate Faesal, whose achievement was celebrated across the Valley irrespective of political, social and class divide.

A senior police officer said the security has been provided because he is a celebrity now and people mob him. So the authorities had to provide security.The police also maintain a constant vigil in the uptown locality of Hyderpora, where Faesal resides. What panicked the authorities recently was a short message service news networks claim that Faesal has been attacked, which turned out to be hoax.But Faesal --- who spent early childhood in Sogam, Kupwara, and 95 km north of Srinagar --- disagrees by the media description of him as rages-to-riches story. I am not a slumdog millionaire, said Faesal, who has studied in Kashmirs top school Biscoe and completed his medical training from reputed college.

Why teacher vacancies not filled, asks SC

The Supreme Court on Thursday asked the Union Public Service Commission and the Delhi Subordinate Services Selection Board to explain within three weeks the delay in filling the vacancies of over 6,000 teachers in government-run schools in the capital. A bench headed by Justice Dalveer Bhandari issued notices to the UPSC and DSSSB after Delhi Chief Secretary Rakesh Mehta told the court in an affidavit that it would take at least two years to fill the vacancies due to procedural delays on the part of the two bodies involved in the selection process.

Is this the way the Chief Secretary files an affidavit when we are talking about right to education? How can he file such an affidavit? the bench asked Additional Solicitor General Parag Tripathi, who represented the Delhi Government.
You talk about right to education and providing free and compulsory education to all children below 14 years. But all this seems to be only on paper for public consumption, the bench said, and asked the Director of School Education to appear before it on February 7.

Asking the government to change its attitude towards education, the bench said: If you continue with your attitude, then in another 10 years China would become the worlds largest English- speaking nation in the world.
Today, if you go to China, all little children there speak in English. In another 10 years, they will overtake you.
The bench was hearing a public interest litigation (PIL) filed in 2004 by Environment and Consumer Protection Foundation, highlighting the plight of government-run schools in Delhi, which lacked basic facilities like drinking water, toilets and buildings, was earlier.

The bench said that posts of over 5,500 Trained Graduate Teachers, 560 Post Graduate Teachers, 117 Principals and 95 Vice Principals were lying vacant since 2007. The court also asked the MCD to file a separate affidavit to explain the infrastructure facilites in the 1,721-odd schools run by the civic body after petitioners counsel Ravinder Bana pointed out that the many of MCD schools were being run in tents and they lacked even the basic facilities like potable water and toilets.

As directed by the court, the National University of Educational Planning and Administration (NUEPA), set up by the Union Ministry for Human Resource Development for capacity building and research in planning and management of education, has filed an affidavit giving details about the conditions of government-run schools across India. The court would consider it on February 17.

Career Counselling

I have just completed my 12th grade with non-medical subjects. I am not interested in engineering. I aim to become an IAS officer. Should I pursue a BBA programme or something else like BA in economics to cover the risk if I do not get selected for IAS? Can you tell me something about the UNDP programme and which line should I choose to enrol myself into it?

I am glad that you are planning your future by looking at sensible fallback options. You can certainly sit for the civil services exam after graduation, but keep in mind that besides the IAS, there are 31 other services that you could get into, as selection in a particular service depends on your rank in the Union Public Service Commission exam. A BA degree in economics will give you many options, both related to finance and business such as banking, chartered accountancy, company secretaryship, cost and work accountancy, financial analysis (CFA) and so on, as well as those for which the study of economics is useful, such as corporate law, public administration, advertising, hotel management etc.

The UNDP, like other UN organisations, works in countries around the world. It is involved in developing work in areas such as education, health, poverty alleviation, environmental degradation, discrimination against women and so on. It requires specialists with a Masters or PhD degree and years of experience in different fields. As many of the assignments are in developing countries with development-related agencies, degrees in public administration, development studies, environment science, social sciences, international relations, human rights, or gender studies after graduation in economics or any other subject could be a good beginning. Work experience in any social development area or with an NGO is an important part of the eligibility requirement, so you could start by working with a non-profit organisation and building experience. Check www.undp.org for more details.

I am a first-year BSc (applied physical science) student at Delhi University. Can I opt for a diploma or MSc in forensic science after graduation? I didnt have biology in school, but we have it in our first year? What are the career options after my BSc? In which subjects can I do my postgraduation?
- Priyanka

With a degree in applied sciences, you can pursue a career in forensic science. Any graduate preferably with a first class degree in physics, chemistry, zoology, botany, biochemistry, microbiology, pharmacy, dentistry or applied science can apply for a diploma in forensic science and criminology, or a Masters programme in forensic science.
The programme equips students to apply their knowledge of science in crime investigation. Forensic science is primarily concerned with the application of scientific principles for the investigation of crime. Using the very latest in technology, forensic scientists analyse all physical evidence found at the scene of a crime and convert the clues collected into evidence admissible in a court of law. After doing this course, you can look for work in law enforcement agencies, the police, the legal system, government investigative services as well as with private agencies. Some of the institutes imparting this programme are:
National Institute of Forensic Science and Criminology, New Delhi
Faculty of Law, University of Pune
Department of Anthropology, University of Delhi
To the US for physics

I graduated in physics this year. I am keen to know the process of taking admission for MSc in American universities. Is there any entrance exam through which I can obtain a scholarship?
- Areeba Fatima
If you plan to apply for post-graduation in the US, you would need to start planning about a year ahead. Check out the universities you wish to apply to, short-listing about 6-8 of them, which offer the particular specialisation you wish to study. There are websites, such as www.collegeboard.com, www.petersonsguide.com and www.usnews.com, which give listings of colleges and universities and their ratings, costs of study, funding, and admission tests. You then need to apply for the GRE (Graduate Record Examinations) which measures verbal reasoning, quantitative reasoning, and critical thinking and analytical writing skills. The GRE is required for admission to Masters programmes in the US. You may also be required to take the GRE subject tests - depending on the programme you plan to study. The exam is administered by Educational Testing Service (ETS) in India. You can check www.ets.org or www.collegeboard for more information.
Admission to a good university depends largely on the results of the GRE. So you need to prepare well for this. You also need to take the English language test, TOEFL, which tests your written and verbal fluency. Your application should also contain a Statement of Purpose and at least two good references.

11 UPSC toppers groomed in Delhi

The Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) announced its result for 2008 on Monday. And as would befit the Capital, 11 of the top 25 candidates either belonged to Delhi and the NCR or they studied in New Delhi. While topper Shubhra Saxena teaches at an IAS coaching institute in Delhi, Yash Garg, a junior resident at Lok Nayak Hospital, Delhi, has stood sixth. The 25-year-old did his Class XII from DPS, RK Puram and then joined Maulana Azad Medical College for his MBBS.
But why graduate in medicine when he wanted to join the civil services?

I always wanted to become a doctor. But it was while practicing that I realised the importance of the civil services, said Garg, who is from Sonipat, Haryana. As a doctor I can help patients individually. But as an administrator I will be in a position to effect institutional changes, Garg said. He added that juggling work with study was not difficult at all.
For rank number 12 Aditi Singh, it was all about falling into the family tradition.

My father recently retired as textile secretary to the Government of India. And my husband cracked the civil services in 2006, said 25-year-old Singh. She is a graduate of Lady Sri Ram College and topped Delhi University in her Masters in Political Science. She has also completed her M Phil from DU.

My husband is based in Nagaland and I am with him right now. But I cant wait to join work, Singh said.
Hindu College graduate Saket Kumar grabbed the 13th position. Kumar did his schooling from Modern School, Barakhamba, and has graduated in History.The news has to sink in. This was my second attempt and I still cannot believe that I made it to the top 20, said 28-year-old Kumar.
