The Class X results of the Punjab School Education Board (PSEB) were announced on Tuesday. Twenty students from the district found their place in the state merit list. The overall pass percentage of Amritsar stood at 99.3. As many as 28,151 students appeared for the Class X exams this year out of which 27,953 cleared.

Arshdeep Singh, a student of St Kabir Public Senior Secondary School, Sultanwind road, secured the first rank in the district and sixth position in the state merit list with 638 marks out of 650, scoring 98.15 per cent.

Sunita Rani from Government High School, Meerankot Kalan, and Supreet Kaur from Dashmesh Public Senior Secondary School, Baba Bakala, secured the second position in district and seventh rank in the state merit list with 637 marks out of 650, standing at 98 per cent.

Harleen Kaur and Gursimran Kaur, students of Amber Public Senior Secondary School, Navan Tanel, Baba Bakala, shared third position in the district and ninth rank in the state with 97.69 per cent and 635 marks out of 650.

Besides these meritorious students, others who found their names in the state merit list include Simranjeet Kaur (Government High School, Meerankot Kalan), Anmoldeep Kaur (Amber Public Senior Secondary School), Ramanjit Singh Sandhu (Ajit Vidyalaya Senior Secondary School), Mehakpreet Kaur (Ajit Vidayalaya Senior Secondary School), Krishna Sharma (Jagat Jyoti Model High School), Mandeep Kaur (Government High School, Meerankot Kalan), Sushila (St Kabir Public Senior Secondary School), Navjot Kaur (Guru Nanak Public Senior Secondary School), Vijay Laksmi (Guru Nanak Public Senior Secondary School), Gursharan Kaur (Ajit Vidalaya Senior Secondary School); Noorpreet Kaur (Sahib Shri Guru Gobind Singh Senior Secondary School), Gulshan Deep Kaur (Amber Public Senior Secondary School), Preeti Kaur (Government Senior Secondary School, Takiala), Bhoomika (Jagat Jyoti Model School) and Navpreet Kaur (Amber Public Senior Secondary School).

The overall result in the district clearly displayed that the girls outshined boys in securing merit positions. For top achievers in the district, grit and determination remained the mantra for success in the PSEB Class X exams.

Arshdeep Singh, who celebrated his success by paying obeisance at the Golden Temple, said although he never really faced any challenge while preparing for boards, it took a lot of hard work to cover up for the lost months of classroom teaching.

“My favourite subject is mathematics and I took guidance from my father, who is a professor of mathematics at Khalsa College, to prepare for boards,” he added.

Arshdeep wants to ditch the popular options of pursuing engineering or medical and wants to become a teacher.

“I will probably teach the subject I like, i.e. mathematics,” he said.

Sunita Rani, who came second in the district, too has a similar story of determination written large over her success in boards. Coming from a poor family, Sunita’s hard work and self-study managed to get her a position in the merit list.

Her father, who is the sole bread-winner, is mostly away as he works as a driver.

“I want to become a chartered accountant,” she said.

Supreet Kaur, who shared the second spot with Sunita in the district, wants to become a doctor.

While girls proved their mettle in the board exams results, it was no mean feat to achieve what they have. Ask Harleen Kaur, who secured third rank in the district and ninth in the state. Losing her father last year just as she entered Class X was the biggest loss of her life. It took toll on her studies and mental health.

“But my family and teachers helped me overcome grief. I and my mother supported each other when it was needed the most. I now want to pursue my father’s dream and become a doctor,” she shared.
