Unable to get the pick list values into controller

Hi All,

I am not able to get the results when I add the picklist values to controller.
Below is the code - Please sugget me the changes to get the desired results.

<apex:page controller="searchres">
<apex:form >
<apex:pageBlock >
  <apex:sectionHeader title="Search Results"/>
              <apex:pageBlockSection >
              <apex:panelGrid columns="2">
                  <apex:outputText value="Country"/>
                  <apex:inputText value="{!country}"/>
                  Qualification<apex:inputField label="Qualification" value="{!ban.Qualification__c}"/>
                              <!--<apex:selectList title="Qualification" label="Qualification">
                             <apex:selectOptions value="{!TypeOptions}"/>
                 <apex:commandButton value="Search" action="{!login}"/>
              <apex:pageBlockSection >
              <apex:pageBlockTable value="{!bank}" var="bnk">
              <apex:column headerValue="Country" value="{!bnk.Country__c}"/>
              <apex:column headerValue="Qualification" value="{!bnk.Qualification__c}"/>
public class searchres {
public string country{get;set;}
public string name{get;set;}
public string Qualification{get;set;}
public string quali{get;set;}
public list<SOV_Database__c> bank{get;set;}
Public SOV_Database__c ban{get;set;}
//this.stdAcctController = (SOV_Database__c)stdcontroller.getRecord();
public id sh;
    public void login()
        bank = [select id,country__c,qualification__c from SOV_Database__c where country__c=:country];
    public List<SelectOption> TypeOptions
            List<SelectOption> options = new List<SelectOption>();
            Schema.DescribeFieldResult fieldResult = SOV_Database__c.country__c.getDescribe();
            List<Schema.PicklistEntry> ple = fieldResult.getPicklistValues();
            for( Schema.PicklistEntry f : ple)
                options.add(new SelectOption(f.getLabel(), f.getValue()));
            return options;

Your select list component needs a variable to assign the selected elements to. e.g.
<apex:selectList title="Qualification" label="Qualification" value="{! selectedList }">
    <apex:selectOptions value="{!TypeOptions}"/>

// then in your controller

public List<String> selectedList{get;set;}

now the 'selectedList' variable should represent the selected options.
