GUWAHATI, May 7 - �My success mantra is nothing but a regular study habit. During school days I studied 4-5 hours daily and during vacations I used to study 8-9 hours. I had no private tuition. I think tuition is not necessary for getting a good result. Rather, tuition consumes a lot of time and affects self study,� said Arindam Sarma, who secured second rank at the national level in the CBSE Class X exams, results of which were declared on Monday.
Arindam, a student of Gurukul Grammar Senior Secondary School of the city who scored 99.6 per cent marks, said, �Now I will pursue higher secondary in science stream and in future I want to create awareness in society regarding the need to work for the progress of our country,� he added.
Another student of the same school Gargi Bora secured fourth rank at the national level with 99 per cent marks. �I have no specific study hours. Rather I try to study as much as possible. Actually I enjoyed my course. I want to become a doctor,� she said.
Expressing his feelings on the success of the students, the Principal of Gurukul Grammar Senior Secondary School Dr Basanta Kumar Bhuyan said, �For the first time, students of North East have secured such positions. It is a proud moment for all the people of the region.�
Bivas Talukdar, a student of NPS International School Guwahati, secured seventh rank in the national level. Talking to The Assam Tribune he said, �I want to pursue my higher education in bio-technology. During preparation for this exam, I mainly focused on my textbooks rather than other reference books.�
Meanwhile, it may be recalled that Bhagyashree Kalita of NPS International School Guwahati had secured the fourth rank in the national level in the higher secondary final examination conducted by CBSE, results of which were declared recently.
Talking to The Assam Tribune, Bhagyashree said, �I will do graduation in psychology from Delhi University and then go for the administrative service examination. I want to serve the country by doing something for the poor section of our society.�
