Five students of School of Excellence, Bhopal have topped the state merit list in the higher secondary examination of Madhya Pradesh Board of Secondary Education (MPBSE).
Four among them have been taught by Rajendra Jasuja, an ailing teacher, who heads the commerce department of the school. Commerce students Shubham Gupta (2nd), Golu Gaur (4th), Garima Saxena (7th) and Akanksha Chouhan (9th) have topped in their stream and attribute their success to Jasuja.
“I underwent hip replacement surgery in 2000. I can hardly walk. I can’t tell you how happy I am after seeing results of my students,” said Jasuja, adding that School of Excellence has achieved 100% result and all students have passed with distinction in accounts and business studies taught by Jasuja.
“Sir has been really supportive. He teaches with great enthusiasm in spite of his physical condition,” says Shubham Gupta.
Chirayu Vijaywargiya, the topper from Commerce stream, Shubham Gupta and third rank holder Simran Morandani are from Bhopal. As many as 10 students from the state capital have secured places among the top 10 rank holders in the commerce merit list.
Nupur Gupta, who came fifth after scoring 473 marks, says, “My success mantra was to divide my course and accordingly study every day. My dad has his own clinic but I chose commerce as I want to prepare for Common Law Admission Test and become a lawyer.”
