Her father, Palwinder Singh is a mason and mother Rajbir Kaur is a homemaker. “Due to financial problems, I was not able to take tuition in Class 10 that’s why I could score only 80.77%.

‘Coaching has made a difference’
Vaishali, who scored 96.67% marks, aims to become a CA. She said, “Coaching has made a difference in her score. I had scored 90% in Class 10.” “This time question papers of all subjects were tough and I was not expecting such goods marks. Unexpected questions had been asked in exam,” said Vaishali, who is on 16th rank in state. Her father, Ramesh Kumar is a head constable in Punjab police and mother Reeta Rani is a homemaker.
‘All credit goes to our teachers’
Farmer’s son Harshpreet Singh, who has secured 96.44% marks, said, “Our school (meritorious school) has best teachers. I belong to Sodhiwal village in Jagraon and did 10th from government school, Malsian Bajan near Sidhwan Bet, 2 km from my village. There was shortage of teachers in this school and due to no guidance most of the students were not able to make it to merit list.” His father, Sardar Atma Singh is a farmer and mother Balwinder Kaur is a housewife. Harshpreet, who is on 17th rank in state, also wants to become a CA and wants to go to USA for further studies.

“Staying away from my parents for two years was a tough decision, but now I feel that this sacrifice led me to the path of success. My father Mangat Ram, who is labourer, was not able to pay my fee for tuitions. Here I got free coaching,” said, Bala (20th rank), who belongs to Nawanshahr district.
