Its a high time for me. Results has been announced for 2012 for most of the boards, except State Intermediate board which is expected in the coming week. There is feeling of pride and happiness across the city. And I am proud because of the recognition that I have started getting at the National level in education field. Right from the 10th to the Civil services, the city has outshines the expectations and the results has really made me to feel proud of my students. Such achievements coming from the different quarters of various areas, which even lacks the basic amenities, is highly appreciable.
It all began with the announcement of Civil Services result last month. The city did extremely well and bagged many ranks in its kitty. Neha from Patna got AIR 022 and did the city extremely proud in the coveted exam. Kaushal from Patna city secured 41st rank, whereas Ankit got 126th rank. There are many from my neighbor cities which cleared the exam. Just few days after, result for IIT JEE brought laurels to me. About 500 student cracked the JEE 2012 from Patna- its a great feeling for any city. 27 student from Super 30 batch made it to the JEE 2012. The amazing success was again highlighted at the National forum. The two toughest exam has already uplifted my name, however, the news that caught national attention was the success of 12 year old boy, Satyam Kumar, from neighboring Bhojpur district, in the JEE 2012. At such a tender age, clearing the JEE is great achievement.
The school results followed. 10th and 12th class result for the CBSE and ICSE board schools brought happiness to many faces. The matriculation result of state board where majority of student appears, were highlighted in all the newspaper of the city for couple of days. The toppers were applauded for their success under different conditions. Intermediate result is expected to come in this first week of June. Navya Yadav from adjoining Bihta captured the top most position in matric exam by securing 93%. Ravish Kumar and Suraj Kumar from Danapu Cantt followed her. The results from most government schools were satisfactory. However, ths saddest part of the result for me was the suicide attempt by a girl from the top of Golghar, because of her failure at the matriculation exam. She sustained serious injuries and is fighting for her life in hospital. I pray for her life.
Kumar Abhishek of St. Michael's High school secured first position in XII th CBSE exam from Patna region. He got 97.8% marks in Science stream. Puja Jha from DAV, BSEB topped in Commerce stream by securing 96.4%. Shradha Chaudhary from Notre Dame school bagged first position in Arts by getting 96.6%. There are several toppers from ICSE XII th exam also. Supriya Rohtagi, a student of St. Joseph's Convent High School of commerce stream, scored 94.2 % marks, while Kriti, her batchmate, got 93.7% marks in class 12 examination. Aditya of Don Bosco Academy, who wants to become a chartered accountant, got 86.5% marks. Tanay Mukund of Don Bosco Academy got 90.25% marks in Science stream. Gayatri of St. Joseph's Convent High School also did her parents and school proud by achieving 90.2% marks. In arts stream, Uzma Batool and Adithi Anand of St. Joseph's Convent High School brought laurels to their school by securing 93.5 marks each. In Xth exam of ICSE board, Shivam Chaudhary and Akshay U Hegde of International School and Sunanda Chatterjee of St. Joseph's Convent High School secured 98.2% marks. They were followed by Tulika Ranjan (97.4%) of St. Joseph's Convent High School and Abir Ahmad (97.2%) of St. Xavier's School. There are many other such students of mine who has done extremely well. I feel so proud of them.
Individually, these results looks segregate but on combining these show tremendous potential in the education system of Patna. Girls and boys from smaller schools has came out with flying colors in 2012. With the future of mine in the hands of these young budding talents, I feel quite secured. They may not be here always to serve me, they may go to live in another sister cities, but the connection and sweet remembrance of me will be always with them. They will be the holders of my name in the other part of the world. Long live student and long live pride !!!
