50% Of Students In Jamia Coaching Centre Clear UPS
Several universities, including Jamia Millia Islamia, are being targeted by the ruling party due to their opposition to the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA). 

But students from this very university are also achieving success in the Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) examinations. The residential coaching academy for UPSC here is proving very successful. The latest UPSC results substantiate this, as 50% students from Jamia’s residential coaching academy have cleared the UPSC Mains examinations this year.

One hundred and two students from this academy had appeared for the UPSC Mains exams, out of which 54, i.e. more than 50% students, have cleared the exams. These candidates will now be interviewed on January 27, after which the final results will be declared.

Jamia’s Residential Coaching Academy had given coaching to 200 students for the UPSC exams. Last year, when the Prelims results were announced, 102 candidates, i.e. more than 50% students, cleared the exam. These students then appeared for the UPSC Mains exam, out of which 54 students were able to crack it. 

There is jubilation in the coaching academy after this success. This academy had started functioning in 2010; retired IAS MA Farooqui is its Honorary Director.

In 2018, 43 students from this academy had cleared the UPSC exam. Junaid Ahmed, UPSC third rank holder in 2018, is also from this academy, which has become so famous now that there is a long queue of applicants seeking admission here. 

In 2018, 7,245 students had applied for admission here; this number increased to 13,129 students in 2019.

However, this university has also been targeted by the ruling dispensation on account of anti-CAA protests here. On the evening of December 15, 2019, Delhi Police had resorted to barbaric action against Jamia students protesting against the CAA and severely beaten them up after entering the university library.
