Maharashtra HSC Board
After SSC, HSC and UPSC exams, the girl students extended their
winning streak yet again by securing the top two slots in the list
of the successful students in M. Sc. exams when Pune University
announced the results last week.
Saima Firdaus Mohd. Yaseen, a
Muslim girl student from Malegaon, the textile town in North
ranked the Pune University in M. Sc. (Mathematics) scoring a
thumping 88.35% in M.Sc. final year, a result normally not achieved
by the students in Mathematics. She is followed by another girl
student Deepali of
Pune University has a criterion
wherein it has different syllabus, examination pattern and question
papers in the exams for the University campus and rest of
Maharashtra. The syllabus and exam pattern for the University campus
are relatively difficult and a student has to be compulsorily in the
campus during the entire course.
Saima secured the first position in
M.Sc. Mathematics after completing the course from the University
campus, ahead of 70 other students, half of them being boys
including foreigners from countries like Iran and Africa.
Acknowledging her achievement Omar
Farooque of Malegaon who had secured the top rank in 2004 scoring
79% and right now working as a Mathematics lecturer at Saboo
Siddique Engineering College Mumbai said, “Very few students
normally opt for the tough Mathematics subject. A girl choosing the
subject in itself is something different. By scoring 89% percent,
Saima deserves all praise from everyone.”
A beaming Saima on the other hand is cool. “Mathematics
has always been a child's play for me", she said to ummid.com.
"Since childhood I had scored excellently well in every exam with
maximum marks in Mathematics."
Saima cleared all her earlier exams
with distinction and in B. Sc. Mathematics too she scored an
impressive 88.75% marks. After clearing NET/SET - a compulsory test
for a college post, she is now eying for the post of lecturership at
any reputed college.
