Hundreds listen as experts unveil secrets of cracking Civil Services exams

Atul Lande of Synergy Study Point, Pune addressing the workshop  held in Malegaon on the civil services exams


Malegaon: Despite soaring temperature and intense heat, more than 1200 Civil Services aspirants thronged the Abdullah Ash-Shae Auditorium of Mansoora in Malegaon April 09 to listen to the experts who in a marathon lecture series unveiled the secrets of cracking the UPSC and state services examinations in a truly effective and useful way.

That the workshop was held at a place three kms away from the actual town did not deter the participants from reaching the venue. By motorcycles, bicycles, auto rickshaws and many of them walking, they were all in their seats hours before the scheduled time.

“We were overwhelmed by the huge response and had to call for additional arrangements in the last minute to accommodate the participants”, Mansur Khan of Jamia Mohammadia Education Society said to

The workshop to guide the Muslim youths for the civil services exams was jointly organised by Jamia Mohammadia Education Society (JMES) and National Awakening and Development of Youth (NADY). It was aimed at encouraging the students to appear for the coveted exams to improve their representation in the civil services.

“Since the Muslim representation in the civil services is very low, we decided to organise this workshop so that the students get an idea of what the exams actually are and what are the difficulties a student can face if he or she decides to appear for the exams”, Arshad Mukhtar, president of Jamia Mohammadia Education Society said.

The organisers had invited Atul Lande of Synergy Study Point, Pune and Farooque Naikwadi of Mumbai to deliver special lectures on the topic.

“Young and bright graduates should vouch for respected positions in the permeant executive arm of the country as the first career option. Once they decide on this, what they need is the proper guidance to crack the UPSC and MPSC exams”, Atul Lande, who travelled from Pune to address the workshop, said while applauding the organisers.

“Contrary to the general perception, the civil services exams are neither tough nor are meant only for meritorious students. One just requires a systematic study and targeted approach to clear these exams”, Farooque Naikwadi said while giving examples of the people who cleared the exams despite being not so good in studies.

The workshop, which was followed by an open question and answer session, also saw screening of a documentary film on the topic. Impressed by the overwhelming response, the organisers not only decided to arrange the workshop every year, but in an important move, declared to support and coach 15 selected students of the town for the civil services exams.
