SSLC Results: Mysuru district goes down in ranking

May 13, 2017

Mysuru: The Mysuru district SSLC results saw a steep down fall with it ranking dropping down to 21st place in the state from eighth place last year. The overall passing percentage too has come down from 85.56 percent to 72.03 percent, that is a drop by 13.53 percent. The authorities concerned who taken all the measures to improve the ranking further are now in a shock.

However, G M Sudeep of Marimallappa School who emerged as topper in the district by scoring 623 marks in SSLC exam said that stiff competition in the school helped him to score better. Sudeep scored centum in Maths, Science, Social Studies and Hindi (II Lang) just lost one mark each in Kannada (I Lang) and English.

A delighted Sudeep who wants to pursue medicine and whose parents are from teaching background said, “I got admitted to Marimallappa School for ninth standard. Though I had very good education in my previous school, the advantage of Marimallappa school was I had to face stiff competition here. This helped me to always keep tab on my performance. If there was no stiff competition I would not have excelled or scored what I have scored today. The regular preparatory exams, guidance and motivation from all my teachers also helped me to score good marks. Apart from all these, my parents’ support also played a pivotal role in my achievement.”

Sudeep, at an average everyday, used to read not more than three hours but during the time of exams he used to stretch for few more hours. He also mentioned that his parents at any point of time didn’t exert pressure on him to read. During his leisure time, he used to play cricket and watch TV. Sudeep’s father Mahesh is working as a lecturer in Economics at Hamuchavadi Government PU College in Chamarajanagar and his mother Mahadevamma was working as teacher in a private school.

To provide quality education to his son, Mahesh, though he was working in Government PU College in Chamarajanagar, settled in Mysuru and everyday, he used to travel to Chamarajanagar. “Before I got a government job, I had worked in Marimallappa School and I knew the quality of teaching there. Hence, after eighth standard, to provide a good exposure I got my son admitted to Marimallappa School. Today I happy that my hard work has yielded fruits” added Mahesh.

Mangala Muddumadappa, who is working as Headmaster of Marimallappa School since 11 years said “Sudeep is a very studious boy and we had expected good marks from him. After Sudeep wrote the exams, he had told us that he will score centum in all the six subjects but he lost just two marks, one each in English and Kannada. In the rest of the subject he has scored centum. Last year, the topper from our school had scored 624 marks. This year we managed to maintain almost the same. It’s all because of the efforts of the students, teachers and parents taht we managed to do well so far. Apart from this, the system which we are practising for the past many years including solving ten years’ question papers is also one among the reasons for our success”.
