The second rank holder in the Secondary School Leaving Certificate (SSLC) Examination declared by the Meghalaya Board of School Education (MBOSE), Jyotipriya Bhattacharjee, said that the secret to success is to be “regular” and not worry about “anything”.
The student of St. Margaret’s Higher Secondary School, Shillong, said that one should pray to God since nothing can be done without Him.
“One does not need to study 24 hours a day; you just need to understand concepts and study regularly,” Bhattacharjee said.
The second rank holder secured 570 marks while also getting letter marks in English, mathematics, science and technology, social science, health education, and alternative English.
The third rank holder of the same school, Tanushri Acharjee, who is aspiring to clear the UPSC Examination and become an IAS or IPS officer, said that she will pursue arts at the higher secondary level.
Acharjee said she secured 564 marks with letters in English, mathematics, science and technology, social science, health education, and alternative English.
Meanwhile, the principal of St. Margaret’s Higher Secondary School, Sister Mary Saio, thanked the teachers who worked hard by taking extra classes and holding late classes for the students even during December and January.
“I see they are sincere in their work and have great love for the students,” the sister said.
The principal also thanked the parents who cooperated with the school authorities.
It may be mentioned that St. Margaret’s Higher Secondary School, Shillong, had three rank holders in the top 20 list, including the 11th position (Raina Pradhan), apart from the second and third ranks.
