Barabanki students bag top spot again

In a repeat of last year, Barabanki has secured the top rank in UP Board Class X examination.

Ashutosh Mishra of Shri Sai Inter College in Lakhpera Bagh area of Barabanki scored 584 marks out of 600 97.33 per cent. Last year, Pooja Yadav of Barabanki had topped UP Board Class X with 95.68 per cent. Now, another girl from Pooja's school - Maharani Lakshmi Bai Memorial Inter College - Aradhana Shukla, has scored 97 per cent marks this year, bagging the second position in the state.

Ashutosh, son of a pharmacist in Barabanki, credits his success to the time-table made by the school. "The school had made a 24 hour time-table and I followed it religiously," he said. "I used to wake up between 3-4 am, then study till school time, attend school, return and take an hour's rest, then again study till at least 10 pm with an hour's break in between," he said. Everyday, he said, he studied for 6-7 hours daily. "And especially mathematics," he said. In mathematics his favourite subject Ashutosh scored a complete 100. He scored 98 each in Hindi and English, 97 in science, 95 in social science and 96 in drawing. With India's first woman IPS officer Kiran Bedi as his idol, he said he wants to be an IAS officer and "end corruption in his district".

Aradhana too, wants to be an IAS officer and serve the nation. According to her, "working hard regularly," was the key to her success. In fact, she likes studying so much that she nonchalantly counts it as one of her hobbies while "all subjects" are her favourite subjects. With 99 each in Hindi and science, 98 in English, 96 each in mathematics and drawing and 94 in social science, she secured the second spot in the state with 97 per cent.
