In the class XII results of the Punjab State Education Board (PSEB),Ludhiana students brought laurels by making a clean sweep of the top nine positions in the State. Out of these top nine positions,only position number five has been bagged by a boy and the rest are all girls. Students of BCM Arya Model Senior Secondary School,Jamalpur,Focal Point,came out as the best as seven of their girls are in the lucky nine list.

Parul Gupta of Sanmati Vimal Jain School,Jagraon,has topped in the State,scoring 94.5 per cent marks. A non-medical student,Parul,however,has no aim to be an engineer. She wants to be a lecturer in Chemistry.

“I did not even appear for any engineering entrance exam because I never wanted to be in the rate race of engineers,” said Parul. “Chemistry is my favourite subject and I am quite clear in my aim.”


Her school principal Shashi Jain stated that Parul stood seventh in the class X exams in the state as well and she was expecting her to be among the top 10 once again. “But the top position is,indeed,a matter of honour for our institution. Her hard work has paid her well,” she added.

Parul’s father is a business man while mother is a housewife.

Rishu Thakur of BCM (Focal Point) is at the number two position in the State while she has topped in the Humanities stream. Rishu took Sanskrit,Physical Education and Fine Arts as her optional subjects and now wants to pursue her graduation in GCW,Ludhiana.

Incidentally,he is the only student from a government school among the top nine.
