Neha Sharma tops Combined Services Exam
Nissar Rasool Bags Second Rank
Srinagar, July 23: Neha Sharma topped this year's Jammu and Kashmir Combined Services Examination, the second woman in the state to achieve this feat. Nissar Rasool of Beerwah Budgam figured at serial number two of the merit list.
Neha bagged the top slot among the 65 successful candidates, 14 of them woman.
The results of J&K Combined Services Examination 2012 which was conducted for filling up of 65 posts in Junior KAS, Police and Accounts Services was declared on Tuesday.
Secretary Public Service Commission TS Ashok Kumar said 14309 candidates appeared in the preliminary examination held in August 2012.
He said the main written examination was conducted in March-April 2013 and interviews of 226 candidates were conducted in June-July.
Hailing from Jammu City, dentist Neha Sharma, who topped the list said that hard work is key to the success.
“After completing my BDS examination from Indira Gandhi Dental College Jammu, I started preparations for Combined Services exam,” she told Greater Kashmir over phone from Jammu.
Neha said qualifying the examination needs step-by-step approach and proper strategy.
“One should be able to distribute time to prepare for the subjects chosen as per the demand,” she said.
Neha’s father Surinder Kumar Sharma is a retired government employee while her mother Bimla Sharma is in government service.
Hailing from Beerwah area of Central Kashmir’s Budgam district, Nissar Rasool did not lose heart after failing to make it to the prestigious state services last time.
“I qualified both the prelims and mains examinations of CSE-2011, but couldn’t make it to the qualifiers list as I fell short of four marks. Due to support of my family and friends, I decided to opt for the examination again last year,” he said.
His father Sheikh Ghulam Rasool is a retired lecturer while his mother Haleema Bano is a housewife.
Nissar said he started preparations for the examination after completing BVSC from SKUAST- Kashmir in 2010 and added that idea of joining state civil services came to his mind while he was doing internship.
“Since then, I rigorously prepared for the examination,” he said.
Pertinently, Syed Sehrish Asghar had topped the state Civil Services Examination in 2011 and went on to crack the IAS examination earlier this year.
