ICSE: Bengaluru boy is all-India joint topper

It was her desire to top in school after she came first in standard IX.

Ms Pathan said, "I was an average student and did not get a rank till Class 8". Later, I'd study for 2-3 hours till 6.30pm-7 pm. He scored 99 in Maths though he expected a 100, and added with a sheepish grin, "Looks like I made a silly mistake". The national-level basketball player stayed on top of her game all the way to her whopping 97.8 per cent. "I decided that I would try to go even beyond him".

Ms Pathan said she studied five to six hours daily but was persistent about it. I used to have dinner at 7 and would continue studies from 7.30 to 10.30-11 pm.

Phillies Hall Of Fame Pitcher Jim Bunning Dies At Age 85
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, his longtime colleague from Kentucky, remembered Bunning for his "long and storied life". He threw two no-hitters, becoming the first pitcher after 1900 to throw no-hitters in both the American and National League.

Son of additional DGP of the Crime Investigation Department (CID), Sanjeev Kumar Singhal, who is an alumnus of the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Raghav, too, aspires to be an engineer and will start his preparatory classes from June 1. For his performance, he gives credit to his parents, the friendliness of his teachers and his preparation during the pre-boards.

But when they learnt that he was the joint topper with Pune's Muskan Abdullah Pathan in the entire country, his parents were stunned! "I want to give special thanks to my grandmother who helped me to follow my timetable". Her parents allowed her to watch TV and she did not miss her favourite cartoons or IPL cricket matches. "I have already joined classes for the NEET examinations". Since childhood it's been my dream to serve the people and many people in my family are doctors.

Rita Katawati, school principal, said, "I thank all our teachers who guided all the students including Muskan so well". Reminiscing on the challenges they faced while getting Muskan into nursery school, Abdullah said, "Since we did not know of too many schools, we got her into Hutchings as my wife's colleague's children were studying there. That motivated me to become a doctor". "This is an achievement for our school".
