CET topper aims at IAS
Wajid Stands Out, Sister Danish Follows At Rank 17
Islamabad, July 1: Mir Wajid Majid of Wandevalgam, a remote village in Kokernag area of this south Kashmir district, was an out-of-the-ordinary student who relied on hard work and luck for his success. The diligent boy with a modest family background has emerged topper in the recently announced result of the Common Entrance Test (CET) conducted by Board of Professional Entrance Examinations (BOPEE). He has scored 208 points.
Incidentally, Wajid’s sister Mir Danish, has also cracked the CET this year.
Wajid attributes his success to the steadfastness in his commitment to the studies. “Success depends on how committed you are towards achieving your goal,” he told Greater Kashmir. “Unlike Board examinations, the commitment to qualify competitive examinations has to be total.”
Wajid passed middle examination from Public English Medium School at his native village and then passed his secondary school examination from Government Higher Secondary School, Wandevalgam. Later, he passed his 12th from HISTA Higher Secondary School, Islamabad securing 84 percent marks.
Wajid says that though he could not make it in the first attempt but that did not shake his confidence. “Though I worked very hard and was aiming to crack AIIMS entrance test for admission to MSBBS, but I couldn’t make it because of lack of proper guidance,” said Wajid.
He said that though guidance from teachers is important but self-study is more crucial.
“What matters is how you plan your studies,” he said and added that qualitative study is more important.
Wajid is still aiming higher. “MBBS is just any other bachelor’s degree and I’ve plans for cracking the IAS examination,” he said.
Beside his parents Wajid gives credit of his success to his teachers who used to guide him.
“My teachers in Public English Medium School always used to encourage me that I had the potential to achieve big and used to advice me to make All India Civil Services my goal,” said Wajid.
He is also thankful to the teachers who guided him during the preparation for entrance. “I along with my parents had shifted to Islamabad in the year 2010 and we were living in a rented house there. Despite adverse conditions and curfews my teachers used to teach me during the unrest,” said Wajid.
He says it is important that students should commit themselves to their goal from the very beginning.
Wajid, had earlier passed his 10th and 12th class examinations with distinction scoring 428 and 628 marks respectively.
Wajid says that he wants to serve the people in his native village. “After completing my degree I would certainly like to work at my native village and serve the poor people,” he said.
Wajid’s, elder sister, Mir Danish Majeed, is also featuring among the toppers. She has secured 197 points and is featuring a 17th rank. Like Wajid, she too made it in the second attempt.
“We used to study together and that made things easier for both of us,” said Danish.
She said that both of them used to study extensively.
“We used to study about 10 hours a day but that is not the only thing that which matters. What is necessary is that your concepts should be clear and you should plan your studies,” she said.
The duo’s father is working as a head Pharmacist in the state’s health and family welfare department.
