JNU or DU for MA in Geography

I have completed my graduation in MA (Geography) this year (2017) itself. I have also cleared the entrance exams of DU and JNU for MA Geography.
My goal is to be a civil servant and I want to prepare for it from this year itself. I have taken few classes in DU and I must say that I am not enjoying learning there, I am feeling as if it is just to get degree. I also want to keep learning.
Should I join JNU? Also I have heard that course is very hectic there and professors do not want students to prepare for UPSC?
What should I do? I am really very confused.

  • You should go to JNU and try evaluating yourself by interacting with students. Traditionally JNU has always been the sought after place for pursuing civil services. This is mostly due to the environment in JNU which is academically very rich and vibrant and plus you will be sorrounded by like minded people.

    I have also taken admission into JNU for MSC Programme.....Preparing for UPSC.....And this is my blessing in disguise as I am out from prelims this time and had scored 132 last year....

    Now I have enough cooling period in JNU and reprepare my mind to do a fresh start for 2018..

    And bro it's ur misconception dat teachers shout at u in JNU for attending classes...Rather they give u full freedom to attend or not classes...No mandatory for attendance in JNU....OPPOSITE is the case in DU...

    If u doubt a single penny please talk to one student of DU n other SCHOLAR from JNU...

    Remember JNU is Jannat ....Example of liberal thought N ideas....

    Work is hard. Distractions are plentiful. And time is short.
    Self-reverence, self-knowledge, self-control; these three alone lead one to sovereign power
