NLU Delhi 2017 alumnus Saumya Sharma has made it to the Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) merit list’s toppers with a rank 9 in her first attempt at the exam, as first reported in her interview by blog Insights on India.

Sharma cleared it in her first attempt after beginning preparations on 19 February 2017, four months before the exam, according to the blog.

Nalsar Hyderabad 2011 alumnus Vikramaditya Malik is at rank 48 in this year’s merit list, reported the Tribune.

Malik, who graduated from Nalsar with five gold medals and eventually graduated from Oxford University’s LLM in 2013, is currently practicing law in Delhi.

This year was his fourth attempt at the civil services exam and his chosen subject was law. He is the son of Haryana IAS officer Yudhvir Singh Malik, his sister Surabhi Malik is a 2012 Punjab-cadre IAS officer and his mother Suchita Malik is an author.

NLU Delhi 2016 alumnus Aditya Vikram Yadav made it to rank 72 in the merit list.

There are probably other lawyers in the ranks of the merit list this year.
