GUWAHATI, May 30 � Parental support and hard work did the magic for the rank holders in the HS Commerce stream this year. Bineeta Jain of the Gauhati Commerce College who topped the list of rank holders attributed her success to her hard work and the encouragement that she got from her family and college teachers.
�I wasn�t expecting the top slot although I had worked hard. Now I am very happy,� expressed Bineeta. She had put in five to six hours of study everyday before the exams and looking towards becoming a chartered accountant in future.
Bineeta will continue her studies at the same college. Her mother Bindu Jain said that it was a proud moment for the family. �She has come out with flying colours and we hope that she will do her country proud in the future.�
The third and sixth ranks were also secured by students of the Gauhati Commerce College. Third rank holder Aparajita Neog is grateful to the college teachers and her parents for the support and guidance they have been extending to her. �In the future I want to work in a top position in a multinational company,� said Aparajita stressing that only hard work can make one successful in life. Aparajita�s mother Dr Anjana Neog described the day as a memorable one for the family.
Sixth rank holder Subhadeep Saha attributed his success to the competitive environment in the college campus. �I want to become an IAS officer and will start preparing for it from now on,� said Subhadeep.
It needs to be mentioned here that compared to the previous year, the number of rank holders decreased this year for the Gauhati Commerce College. Last year, nine students from this college had secured the top ten positions. Principal of the college Dr Ghanashyam Nath said that he was happy with the overall performance of the college. �The pass percentage of our college this year is 99.53. Despite some hurdles that the college has to face now and then, we have succeeded in bringing out the best in our students,� said Dr Nath.

�We are happy by the performance of our students. The entire staff of the college ensured that our students got the best,� said Dr Kalita. The pass percentage of the college at 98.63 showed a marked improvement compared to last year (96.7).

For tenth position holder Kushal Rajgariah, Modi is a favourite. Attributing his success to hard work and encouragement from his mother, brother and college teachers, Kushal said that his elder brother Rietesh had also secured a position from the same college and this factor had always motivated him to put extra effort in his preparation for the exam. �My aim in life is to become a chartered accountant,� he said.
Reshma Jain, who also got the tenth position, said that she wants to become an IAS officer and stop corruption. A fan of Chetan Bhagat, Reshma is grateful to her family, particularly to her grandmother who always inspired her.
