Shovan Mandal, a student of Birbhum Zilla School stood first in the higher secondary examinations this year securing 498 marks. He has secured 100 marks each in English, Chemistry and Mathematics and 99 each in Bengali and Biology and 95 in Physics.

A resident of Katdigha in Mayureswar, he had secured eighth position in the state in the madhymik examinations but did not think that he will secure 99.6 percent and stand first.

He said that he had thought that he will be in the top ten merit list. “ I wish to become a doctor and work in the district hospitals as there are severe crisis of doctors in state government hospitals. I am an ardent fan of Virat Kohli and love playing video games on mobiles during leisure hours,” he added.

Every day he used to study for ten to twelve hours and had private tutors in all the subjects. He has dedicated his success to his parents. He also watches cartoon shows on television and loves reading storybooks, however since class eleven, he did not have time to read many story books.

Shovan said that the reason behind his success is that he used to take extra care in writing. “ Everyday I used to write after thoroughly reading the textbooks,”he added. “ The result is a dream for us. He used to study until 2.30 a.m. We are really proud of his achievements,” said Subhas Kumar Mandal, his father.

His friend Shirshendu Ghosh stood fifth with 491 marks (98.2 per cent) from Birbhum Zilla School.
