He further said he followed a very flexible time-table during exams. “I used to study for four to five hours that too with a half-an-hour break after every one hour. I have now opted for the non-medical stream as I want to become an engineer,” he added.

When asked why he wanted to be an engineer, Balram replied, “I am very much inspired by my cousin brother, who is an engineer. I want to follow in his footsteps as he has made the whole family proud.”

Muskan Paul, daughter of an electrician, Jeevan Kumar, said, “I am feeling very happy. I couldn’t have asked for anything more. Though I was expecting good marks and was confident of making it to the merit list, I never thought I would be one of the district toppers.”
