 “My 1,000 hours of hard work helped me stay among the top three ranks,” remarked a jubilant B Amritha, a student of Shrishti Matriculation School who scored 495/500 to secure the state third rank in the Tenth Standard Board Examination, the results for which were announced on Monday.

She said that she meticulously followed all the instructions and did the homework given by the school teachers and never had any backlog. “I made it a point to study one hour in the morning and two hours in the evening. Preparations started right from day one of my joining class ten.”

Her mother Sudha, a homemaker, said that limited friendship and a disciplined approach towards studies did the trick for her daughter. A little more hard work in Maths could have pushed her to the top slot, she added. “Amritha was studious right from the third standard and had maintained the first rank throughout,” said the proud mother. The news about the rank was received from her father (who works in SPIC as regional manager in Vellore) who was in Chennai.

Amritha also holds third rank in the state for Science and Social Science. She missed centum in Maths by two marks, by barely a mark in English and two marks in Tamil. She is, however, the district topper.

Amirtha enjoys singing Tamil movie songs and loves to play carom. She wants to pursue medicine. School correspondent Rajendran said that a lot of planning had gone into teaching and the school had a 100 per cent pass result.

Nivas Prabu of this school has secured 494/500 to bag the second rank in the district while Kumraguru S and Vignesh S of the same school have scored 493/500.
