Nestled in the nineties

Arpita Iyer, a student from Mount Carmel College scored a whopping 98 per cent in commerce. This star student attributed her achievement to her parents and college, landing perfect scores in mathematics, accountancy and statistics. She hopes to become an accountant and plans to write the common proficiency test (CPT) right away in June.

Arpita’s classmate Aishwarya Shivaramakrishnan, scoring the same marks, also aspires to become an accountant, but plans to study B Com before appearing for CPT. Aishwarya said that she was “really very happy about the result. It was quite unexpected.”

Medicine seems to be a popular choice for high achievers in science. Megha P from Jain College attributed her success to her parents and teachers. Anuj S, who scored 97 per cent in science, too credits his parents and teachers for the success.

Harshita N from Christ Junior College, who secured 95 per cent, said: “I am quite happy with my PCMB scores, but slightly disheartened by the language scores. I’m hoping for a better rank in CET.” Just as Megha and Anuj, she wishes to pursue a career in medicine.

Like Harshita, Ajay Singhvi scored 100 in three subjects namely - chemistry, mathematics and computer science, and 98 in physics. However, he lost a total of 19 marks in languages, which got him a total of 579 out of 600.

Niranjan S from Mahavir Jain College missed the perfect score by one unit, scoring an outstanding 99 out of 100 in four subjects - physics, chemistry, mathematics and biology. “I am extremely content at this point. Special regards to my college and parents.”

Ajay Gopal from Christ Junior College, with 96.33 per cent, has a different thought about his line of career. He has a keen interest in pursuing mechanical engineering.
