Srinagar, May 20: Two girls of Dadsar village in Tral of South Kashmir have surprised many by securing the top two positions in the Class Xth results declared by the Jammu and Kashmir Board of School Education recently. Both the girls residing in the village under the garb of militancy and lack of basic amenities like non-availability of electricity, poor roads have got the top two positions. Anika Shabir scored 494 out of 500 marks and Shaheera got 491 marks.
Anika said that she was not deterred by the conditions of her hometown and prepared for the examinations from the beginning and got the support of her parents in the studies. The two young girls relied on self-study at home instead of getting into the trap of private tuition and credit their success to the teachers of their school. The results of tenth class examinations were declared Tuesday with the girls outshining boys by securing the first three positions. However, the overall pass percentage of boys (74.5) is higher than that of girls (68.8).The first 20 positions are shared by 182 students.
