Don’t think about results, says Shivani
SHIVANI BADAL’S happiness is written in her smile and spills over in her voice. The petite girl has bagged the second position in the merit list of the science faculty of the higher secondary certificate examination and it’s a day of celebration for her and her family.
A student of Scholar’s Home Public Higher Secondary School, Arera Colony, Shivani scored 431 marks out of total 450 (95.77 per cent), just a mark short of the topper of the faculty Hitesh Gawhade of Betul.
Although separate merit rankings have been announced for students of different faculties, the fact that the science stream students have scored high marks puts them at the top in the State and thus, Shivani, could be termed the topper amongst girls in the State.
“Hard work is key to my success,’’ the young girl said while talking to the Hindustan Times. She says her achievement was not handed to her on platter, but she had to make concerted efforts for it. “I would advise my juniors not to worry about results, but continue their study with sincerity and hard work,’’ Shivani says assuming maturity.
Daughter of accounts officer with the MP Electricity Board AK Badal and Government schoolteacher Madhu Badal, Shivani gives credit of her success to the encouragement and support of her family. “My parents, my elder brother Vikram and younger sister Sonali all provided their best support to me,’’ she says.
Presently, she is preparing for various competitive exams including the pre-medical test (PMT) and wants to become a doctor. Apart from studies she is keenly interested in debating and has won State-level prizes in various competitions.
She also likes reading, playing throw ball, and is not addicted to television or films. “I watch them off and on,’’ she says. The meritorious girl likes to spend time out with her family rather than her friends.
For Hitesh,it’s from one exam to another
TOPPER OF the science faculty Hitesh Gawhade, who by virtue of scoring highest marks among all successful candidates in the higher secondary exams, can be termed as state topper for 2006 (though there is not formal announcement as regards overall topper), is jubilant at his achievement.
“I knew I would perform well, but this achievement of being the state topper comes as the icing on cake,’’ Hitesh who is presently taking coaching for IIT entrance at Kota in Rajasthan, said over telephone.
He said he expected to score about 90-92 per cent but he never thought he would score highest marks among all students. He topped the science stream and also the list of all successful candidates. Hitesh scored 432 out of 450 marks (96 per cent).
A student of Government Multipurpose HS School (School of Excellence), Betul, Hitesh wants to be a software engineer and has been preparing towards this end from many months.
He has also taken a special training at Kota to be able to get into one of the IITs – the premier technology institutes of the country.
He gives the credit of his success to the principal of the Excellence School A Ingle, his Mathematics teacher Satyendra Udaipure, other teachers G B Patnakar and D K Kale and his parents Santosh and Vimla Gawhade.
