Dibrugarh loses sheen with just 3 HSLC toppers

By Staff Correspondent

DIBRUGARH, May 25 - The performance of Dibrugarh district in the High School Leaving Certificate (HSLC) examination, 2018, fell by some 2.25 per cent, while the number of rank-holders also came down to just three.

Last year, the pass percentage of the district was 55.22 per cent, while this year, it was 52.97 per cent. A total of 14,430 candidates appeared for the exam, and only 7,643 students passed. In all, 2,773 students were placed in the first division, 3,004 in the second division and 1,866 in the third division.

Ashish Handique and Syeda Inaya Tabassum of BVFC Model School, Namrup, and Shreyas Bhattacharjee of Salt Brook School here were the three rank holders from the district.

Ashish Handique secured the eighth position, while Syeda Inaya Tabassum and Shreyas Bhattacharjee got the tenth position. All the three toppers want to study Science. Ashish wishes to be an engineer, Syeda Inaya desires to be a doctor while Shreyas wants to be a scientist and do research in physics.

In an interview with The Assam Tribune, the rank holders said they studied for not less than six hours a day to prepare for the exams.

Since the past few years, students from BVFC Model School and Salt Brook School have been bringing laurels to the district recurrently. The schools, however, were expecting more rank-holders.

The performance of private schools like Little Flower Higher Secondary School, Don Bosco Higher Secondary, St Mary�s School, St Xavier�s School and other private institutions has also remained relatively good.

Asked about the fall in the pass percentage, Inspector of Schools Semina Yasmin Ara Rahman said a proper study would be crucial to find out the reasons. �We will need to study and analyse before coming to a conclusion,� Rahman said.
