Prabhjot Joshi brought laurels to BCM Senior Secondary School, Focal Point, by bagging the top honours in the district in the Class-10 examination conducted by the Punjab School Education Board (PSEB), the results of which were declared on Tuesday.

With 98.46% marks in her kitty, she also secured the seventh rank in the state merit list.


Sharing the second position in the district are Gagandeep Mohan of RS Model Senior Secondary School, Shastri Nagar, and Himani Sharma of BCM Senior Secondary School, Focal Point, who with a score of 98.15% have grabbed the ninth position in the state.

Jashanpreet Kaur with 98% marks is third in the district and tenth in the state. She is a student of Moon Light Public Senior Secondary School, Haidonbet.

As compared to last year, however, the results have not been that encouraging when it comes to the toppers. From grabbing all seven top positions in the state the previous year, the district has managed to figure at the seventh, ninth and tenth positions only this time around.

On the brighter side, 92 students from Ludhiana have figured on the merit list of 402 students, the maximum among all districts. Last year, the number stood at 64 out of 384.

Also, girls have managed to fare better than boys again. While last year, all seven toppers were girls, this year, too, three of the four district students among top ten in the state are girls.
