Almas Sayyad tops Maharashtra HSC Board

Pune: 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 Maharashtra top 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 neighboring Ahmadnagar.


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 "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.
