A class 10 student in Berhampur, Biswajit Bhuyan’s smile said it all. He is not only elated but boasted of confidence as well. And why not, he has secured 98.16 percent in the recently concluded matric exams.

A student of Saraswati Shishu Mandir at Ramaharinagar in Berhampur, Bhuyan does not belong to a well-to-do family. In fact, his father, Sanjay Bhuyan is an electrician and has been working in a motor winding shop in the silk city for last the 30 years.

Asked about the financial constraints that he had to face in his studies, Bhuyan said, “One does not have to be rich in order to do well in studies or to top an exam for that matter. It all depends on the effort you put in.”

Speaking about his result and the preparation that went into it, he said, “Students need to start preparing from day-1. One cannot succeed in any exam if they think that they will top it by reading 20 hours a day after the exam schedules are declared.”

“I used to study for 3-4 hours during my school days. I extended my study time to 5-6 hours when the exam neared and made it 10 hours a day during the exams. I am happy with my result as it was expected given the amount of effort I had put in,” he said.

Bhuyan has secured 99 in Social Science (SSC), 96 in General Science (GSC), 100 in Third Language Sanskrit (TLS), and 99 in Maths.

Interestingly, Bhuyan’s father had failed the matric exam during his time at school and started working in an electrical shop. Now, as his son has done so well in the same exams, his happiness knew no bounds.

“I have helped him stay focused on his studies and will continue to support him in his future endeavours. I guided him throughout his studies. Whenever he encountered any doubt, he used to call up his teachers to clear the doubts,” said his father, Sanjay.
