SSLC topper
Last Updated 14 May 2015, 15:55 IST

Hard work always bears fruit and that has been  proved time and again. Rahul Kamath, a student of Sri Kumarans Children’s Home, brought immense pride to his family, school and the State by securing a score of 621 in the SSLC exams this year. He is one of the toppers in the school.

His father Deepak Kamath says proudly, “He had put  great effort throughout the year. We are very happy and proud that he has scored full marks in three core subjects – maths, science and social science.”  
Rahul said, “My preparation began from class nine and I put the same amount of effort as I did last year. I did not go for extra coaching classes nor did I attend any private tuitions. I answered all the sample papers and gave my best shot. I was a little nervous before the social science exam. It was pretty challenging as the subject was heavy in terms of content and the number of chapters. I was scared as to how I would revise about 40 chapters in a day but managed to finish them.”

He adds, “The school was spectacular in their support. My parents also put no pressure or expectations on me and allowed me to work hard and do my job.”

He says that he will go on to study in Kumarans Pre-University College, Padmanabhanagar, for the next two years. He plans to pursue aerospace sciences in future.

   “My aim for the next two years is to perform well in the Karnataka CET exams,” he sums up.
