Want to become doctor, say majority of toppers
Kolkata: Most of the toppers in the Madhyamik Examination expressed their desire to become doctors in order to serve people in the rural areas, while some others wanted to pursue research on various fields.
Sougata Das of Mahammadpur Deshpran Vidyapith in East Midnapore, who topped the examination this year 99.98 percent marks, shared his happiness soon after the result was published. "I want to become a doctor. I thought that I would score good marks, but I never thought that I would come first in the Madhyamik Examination. It's a great feeling. I want to serve the people after becoming a doctor," Sougata said.
Shreyashi Paul of Falakata Girls' High School in Alipurduar, who ranked second with 691 marks, was also amazed to see her name flashing on the television screens. She wants to become a doctor as well.
"It is a great feeling for me. I was quite determined that I would score high marks but the idea of securing second position was far from my mind. My parents and elder sister have always supported and guided me. I will be pursuing science stream and want to be a doctor. I want to serve the poor people. There was no specific time for my studies. I used to study whenever I had time on my hands," Shreyashi said.
Debasmita Saha of Ila Devi Girls' High School, who also secured the second position, said: "I am excited to see the result. I never thought that I would rank second. I had obtained 665 marks in my test examination. The number has gone up in the Madhyamik examination. I would give the credit to my parents and teachers. I used to study for 9-10 hours on an average basis. Listening to music, drawing and watching TV were my pastime habits. I want to become a doctor."
Camelia Roy of Raiganj Girls' High School scored 689 and jointly stood third with two others. She said that she wants to pursue science and do research work in future.
Bratin Mondal, who also stood third, is a student of Santipur Municipal High School. He said: "I did not indulge in mobile phone too much as it diverts the attention of students. I use mobile for getting information. I preferred not to indulge in social media. One should do creative things. I want to do research on physics. Both of my parents are physics teachers."
