NLS 2018 grad Jeydev CS scores tough 5th rank in UPSC exam, plus top ranks from NLU-D, NLU-J [UPDATING]

NLSIU Bangalore law graduate Jeydev CS has come fifth place in the prestigious and notoriously competitive Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) Civil Services Examination 2019, according to Bar & Bench on Twitter.

The strong showing from at least one lawyer (though there are likely to be more) mirrors that of last year, when NLU Delhi's Vaishali Singh came eighth alongside ranks of at least 12 others.

Jaydev is a 2018 graduate of NLSIU Bangalore, where he had been a successful quizzer [correction: and also debater, though that specific link was not to a debate] and mooter, having been part of the team that won the international Henry Dunant moot in 2015.

If there are any other law graduates or lawyers who have scored highly in the UPSC exams, please do share in the comments.

The full list is available here.

Updates, thanks to commenters:

  • 35: Kanchan Singhla, from NLU Delhi, according to the Tribune (thanks to the commenter who confirmed!).
  • 140 Karshi Jain, 2016 NLU Jodhpur.
  • 189: Sonakshi Saxena of 2016 NLSIU.
  • 253: Saloni Jain, 2016 NLU Delhi.

(Correction: the 51st rank is not from NLIU Bhopal)
