I have a table StudentMarks with columns Name, Maths, Science, English. Data is like

Name,  Maths, Science, English
Tilak, 90,    40,      60
Raj,   30,    20,      10


I want to get it arranged like the following:

Name,  Subject,  Marks
Tilak, Maths,    90
Tilak, Science,  40
Tilak, English,  60


With unpivot I am able to get Name, Marks properly, but not able to get the column name in the source table to the Subject column in the desired result set.

How can I achieve this?

I have so far reached the following query (to get Name, Marks)

select Name, Marks from studentmarks
Unpivot
(
Marks for details in (Maths, Science, English)

) as UnPvt
