Sherwood School, Tura has done it again! Beating everyone else, Sherwood managed to clinch the top spot in the Secondary School Leaving Certificate (SSLC) examination, the results of which was declared by the Meghalaya Board of School Education (MBOSE) on May 26 morning.

Samridhya Das of Sherwood School secured the first position with 572 marks, followed by Jyotipyria Bhattacharjee and Tanushri Acharjee, both of St Margaret HS School in the second and third position with 570 and 564 marks, respectively.

Meghalaya state topper in this year’s Class X Secondary School Leaving Certificate SSLC examinations from Tura’s Sherwood School, Samridhya Das, believes nuclear energy is what will drive the future of energy on our planet.

Speaking to The Meghalayan shortly after receiving the electrifying news of bagging the state’s first position in this year’s SSLC exams, Samridhya Das of Sherwood School spoke of his expectations and what the future holds, not just for his career but that of the world of science.

Extremely delighted with the news of his success, he said, “I had expected good results with letters, but to secure the first position in the state was completely unexpected. I was left speechless.”

He plans to be a scientist and has set his sights on becoming a nuclear physicist.

“I have studied a lot about radioactive material and nuclear energy, which is unlimited energy that, when used properly, can accelerate progress across the world and beyond because energy and matter are what created our universe,” says Samridhya.

When pointed out to the ill-effects of radioactive materials and threats of nuclear war, Samridhya puts it directly by saying, “Nuclear energy use is not dangerous provided human interference is not there.”

Only the son of businessman Swajan Kumar Das and homemaker Rita Das, Samridhya owes his success to his wonderful parents, his great teachers, and his friends, who always encouraged him to give it his best shot.

“My parents, teachers, and friends have been my pillars of strength and confidence,” he said.

The exams that brought him this glory have not been all perfect, he feels, because social science was a subject that was vast and needed to be tackled with adequate preparation.

“From all the subjects, social science was the most difficult because you don’t know from where the questions will pop up. It can come from anywhere, which is why one has to be thoroughly prepared.

Studying for 2 or 8 hours doesn’t matter; only focus does.

Samridhya Das has a word of advice for the younger generation of students who will one day face a similar test when their time comes. He doesn’t believe in long durations of study but solely in concentration.

“The best remedy, and my advice to the younger generation, is concentration. You may study for 2 hours or 8 hours; it doesn’t matter. All that is required in that space of time is proper concentration in what you do in that limited period of study,” advises the state topper.

He also gives an added pointer: “And never take stress into your studies. Be calm and just concentrate on what you are doing.”
