Balurghat boy shines in Madhyamik, ranks joint eighth on merit list
BALURGHAT: Sayantan Basak, who has secured his name among the top ten on the merit list of West Bengal Board of Secondary Education (WBBSE), aspires to become a doctor in future. The student of Gangarampur High School in South Dinajpur has placed eighth scoring 683 marks, including 10 others who have ranked the same.
"It's my dream to become a doctor in future. The success that I have attained is because of the constant support of my parents. I have to mention the name of my school teachers as well because of their unmistakable efforts," Sayantan said.
A resident of Duttapara in Gangarampur, his father Brindaban Basak is a garment trader by profession. He used to devote five to six hours every day to prepare for his first board exams.
"I studied the text book of each subject thoroughly. This thorough study helped me build clear concepts of every subject. There is no alternative of continuous study and I personally feel only studying just before exam is useless. I had no pressure from my family members for ranking in the merit list," Sayantan said.
Sayantan's neighbor Arati Saha, a retired high school teacher, said: "The boy has been a brilliant student since childhood. His behaviour is very decent and polite with others. We are proud of him."
Meanwhile, all other Madhyamik schools across South Dinajpur district have also obtained satisfactory results. Since morning, the excited students were seen with their mobile phones in hand, looking up their results.
