TURA, July 20 - Sherwood School once again shone this year with Chetna Bose, the topper of the Meghalaya Board of Secondary Education (MBOSE) SSLC exams, hailing from the school.
Chetna Bose, both of whose parents are teachers by profession, said she was inspired by the results of previous toppers and wanted to emulate them. She revealed one of the recipes of success for her has been regular studies, rather than the last minute helter-skelter form of education.
The daughter of Chandrajit Bose and Duggirala Sesi, Chetna said she would like to continue her education in Science from Don Bosco College in Tura.
�I have always been fascinated by the various equations of Physics, formulaes of Chemistry, theorems of Mathematics etc. This definitely makes it easier for me to pursue them in the future,� said Chetna.
Chetna secured 568 marks out of 600.
For her, the amount of hours spent did not matter while she studied.
�Apart from doing the regular homework, preparation for tests and projects, I revise each lesson taught at school that very day - no matter how long it takes, to prevent confusion just before the examinations,� she said.
She added that she took tuitions in Mathematics and Science to augment her studies further, adding she was extremely grateful to her school and her teachers because of whom she achieved what she did.
As a hobby, Chetna said she enjoyed reading fiction and non-fiction while also jotting down her experiences after reading books and watching movies � another of her passions. She also enjoyed being on the basketball court.
As advice for future probable toppers, Chetna said, �From personal experience I can tell that last-minute preparations yield absolutely no results. Hence one should study every single day so as to cover the syllabus efficiently without causing tension to themselves before the examinations.�
