Olivita Ancilla D’Souza, a student of Alva’s PU College in Moodbidri, has secured first place in II PU commerce stream in the State. 

Thrilled over the results, Olivita told DH, “Hard work and consistency in studies helped me to excel in examination and top the list.” 

Daughter of Oliver Ubald D’Souza and Anitha Maria D’Souza from Kondipalke in Kinnigoli, Olivita said, “She is happy and excited.”

Thanking institution Chairman Dr M Mohan Alva, teachers, parents and her brother, she said, “Without their support and encouragement I would not have scored 596 in II PU examination. I want to become a CA and presently undergoing training to write CPT (Common Proficiency Test is a gateway to enter into the profession of Chartered Accountancy) exam at the college.”

“Meticulous study and preparing for the exam as per the road map prepared by lecturers in the college helped me a lot. I used to study thoroughly during my holidays. Whatever lecturers had taught me in classrooms, I used to remember while studying,” she added.

Olivita has scored full marks in Business Administration, Accountancy, Mathematics and Statistics while she has scored 98 in English and Hindi languages.

“Playing keyboard is my hobby along with singing, dancing and listening to music,” she said.

Sharing the top position with Olivita is Srikrishna Sharma from Satya Sai Loka Seva PU College, who has also scored 596 marks.

Srikrishna said he was excited over his results. He has secured full marks in Basic Maths, Statistics, Business Studies and Accountancy. The atmosphere at Satya Sai hostel was conducive for learning. The lecturers and hostel warden were very helpful and were clearing all the subject-related doubts, he added.

“I love reading and had made thorough preparations for the exam.”

Hailing from Badiadka in Kasargod district of Kerala, he is the son of Subrahmanya Bhat, a farmer and Sharada, a housewife. “I want to take up BCom and then pursue my career in CA,” he added.
