SSLC toppers in Udupi and Dakshina Kannada districts have attributed their success to hard work and systematic study.

Speaking to DH, Abhishek Jayanth Holla from Government High School in Volakadu in Udupi said, “The objective questions were really challenging as we students had to understand the entire concept fully. I was preparing for the exam throughout the year.”

“Teachers also helped a lot. Initially, there were no physical classes at the beginning of the academic year. I had expected full marks in the exam,” he said with a smile on his face.

“I want to become a computer engineer and will pursue my PU with a combination including computer science. I have learnt a bit of computer coding as well. I am interested in essay writing, quizzes and have won prizes,” he said.
