From first division to first position

By Rakesh Sharma IMPHAL | May 23 In the Higher Secondary Examination 2017 results of Arts stream Enlightened Knowledge Higher Secondary School’s student Ngangom Jinita topped the list. She is the second daughter of three children of Ng Churchil and Ng (o) Sanatombi of Nambol Maibam Chingmang, Bishnupur. Jinita passed her 10 standard board exam in first division from the Bethel English School, Nambol. Two years later she bags the first position in the 12 standard examination. She secured a total of 454 out of 500 marks. Since her school is far from home Jinita stayed in the school hostel during her higher secondary schooling life. Jinita is not addicted to books. She plays badminton, basketball and traditional sports during her free time. Moreover, she is a nature and a pet lover. Speaking to IFP, Jinita said that she feels very excited and happy as she realised her dream of topping the examination. She added that, “As there are lots of natural resources in the state which can bring huge economic development I want to become a successful geologist in order to study about the natural resources of the state and also extract these.” From Jinita’s point of view staying in hostels helps students to concentrate more on studies as proper guidance from the teachers are given 24x7 and remain confined to the school atmosphere. Jinita said that she only studied for 5 hours a day during her preparation for the examination and took private tuitions for English and political science after school hours at the hostel. “If you want to fulfil your aim and dreams, do not let anyone stop you in pursuing your dream,” is the message given to the youth of the state by Jinita. She was a bit unsatisfied with the score in sociology where she hoped to get more then 95 but got only 94. And the scores given for the rest of the subjects were satisfied by her. As Jinita wants to become a successful geologist in the future, she has planned to take up general studies in Delhi University and pursue her dream.
