Pune, July 16, 2020: City students have passed the Higher Secondary Certificate (HSC) examination this year with flying colours. Most of the colleges in Pune achieved an overall passing percentage of above 90 percent. A total of 14,13,687 students had appeared for the HSC examination, out of which 12,81,712 students passed the exams.

One of the city toppers Ashutosh Ghuge from City Pride Junior College based in Nigdi Pradhikaran, who secured 95.84 percent in Science stream, was unable to believe his eyes when he saw his result. “I am grateful to my teachers. My main focus is JEE mains, and I found Chemistry examination slightly tricky than other subjects. When asked about preparation, he said, “I was attentive in class and continuously revised formulae and the theory part.”

Sera Gandhi of Fergusson Junior College’s Science stream has secured 94.76 percent. “I attended college lectures regularly, and I was always in touch with my teachers. I also attended the Test series in my coaching class, which further helped me in my exams. The key to board exams is to solve a lot of extra practice papers. This was my focus in the last two months,” Gandhi said.

Another topper from Fergusson Junior College’s Arts stream Aishwariya Gadgil has secured the highest marks in a History subject. “All the credit for my success goes to my teachers. I didn’t do anything different. I just studied and followed my teachers’ guidance, that’s it,” said Gadgil.

Sohmika Wadhwa of Fergusson Junior College also scored 94.76 percent in Science stream and was extremely happy to be in the name of Fergusson Topper list.

I am looking forward to appearing for NEET and hope for the best,” said Sohmika.

Meghna Joshi, one of the toppers at the Brihan Maharashtra College of Commerce (BMCC) with 95.69 percent said, “Life after passing class X was quite challenging as I had to travel 27km to college and back every day. But from the beginning, I aimed to gain maximum knowledge. Yes, my family, teachers and friends have helped me at each step. Also, self-study and self-motivation are something that are going to assure your achievements. Lastly, don’t miss out on any vibrancy in your life. Being book worms ain’t going to help much.”

Another topper from BMCC Pranoti Mohite who scored 95.3 percent marks also thanked her teachers and appealed to all the students that this was just a beginning, and there are many opportunities in life ahead.
