Dakshina Kannada (DK) district had a record result on 10th std after 17 SSLC candidates scored 625/625 marks in the examination results announced on Thursday, while five candidates in Udupi scored full marks.
In DK, two of the candidates were from government schools, and the rest were from aided and unaided schools who scored full marks. Five students from Alva’s Kannada School scored full marks. Meanwhile, the district also improved its performance, by achieving an A grade. Last year, it had achieved a B grade, with candidates from here securing 12 ranks in the state.
Indira Arun Nyamagoudar, a resident of the Bagalkot district, who got a perfect score, said that she prepared well for the exam, but was not sure of scoring 625 out of 625. She added that the school environment provided her with a positive platform to study well.
Her father Arun Ramappa Nyamagoudar, a farmer, added that his daughter is a part of the adoption scheme of the school, and started to study at Alva’s from class VI. “She has not yet made any plans for further studies,” he added.
