Mysuru: Students who have completed graduation and post graduation must be bold enough to face the competitive exams. And coaching is very important part to gain confidence to write the competitive examinations, said Deputy Director of Pre-University Education Prof. Dayananda.
He was speaking at the free UGC-NET examination coaching organised by Jnanabuthi at Lakshmipuram Government Pre-University College auditorium on JLB Road, here recently.
In order to see that everyone gets higher education, the governments both at the State and Centre have brought in lot of changes in the system. Hence, undergraduate colleges have been opened in rural areas and as a result thousands of rural youth both boys and girls have access to higher education, he said.
As it is the responsibility to provide jobs to those who have completed higher education, every year competitive exams are held for IAS, IPS and other civil service jobs every year to fill the vacant posts. It is service minded organisations like Jnanabuthi that fill the gap, he said.
Last time, in Mysuru, nearly 50 per cent of aspirants who paid fees to write the competitive exams were absent. It is a matter of regret that such students are not getting proper guidance and hence they are absenting themselves from writing the exams, he bemoaned.
On the occasion, Ravindra Swamy who was conferred the Honorary Doctorate by Dharwad University was felicitated. Later, the competitive exam booklet ‘Jnanabhandar’ was released.
Former Vice Chancellor of Rani Chenamma University Prof. B.R. Ananthan, Litterateur and Humourist Prof. M. Krishnegowda, Prof. N.N. Prahalad, Prof. H.S. Mallikarjun Shastry, Prof. R. N.
