Arghdeep Saha of Woodland Secondary School, Dalu has topped the Meghalaya Secondary School Leaving Certificate (SSLC) Examination 2022. Registered as a private candidate, Arghdeep shared the first rank with Amibaihunsha Kharbhih, a student of St Paul’s Higher Secondary School, Marbisu.
Despite all odds, Arghdeep has topped the list and he attributes his success to the tireless efforts of his teachers. “The school provided everything I wanted, the school was in touch with me every time so they helped me whenever I needed it. My mother herself is a science teacher in the school, so she helped me with my studies,” he said.
It is not common that a student from a remote area of Meghalaya rises to the top. When asked, Arghdeep said, “It never happens that a student of Dalu does not reach the top, it matters how we study, how much time we spend for studies. If we complete our classes Pay attention and study the books well then we can make it. I didn’t expect it to be the first rank.”
Despite the creation of the Meghalaya Telecom Infrastructure Policy in 2018, mobile connectivity in the state, including the capital Shillong, remains very poor, much to the suffering of millions of mobile users. The most affected are the students.
When asked about online classes, Arghdeep said, “Last part there were online classes, there was internet problem, sometimes voice breaks or videos would freeze, at that time I could not attend classes, then Whenever I messaged the teachers, they were available to help me, even during the holidays.”
Aiming to become a doctor, he is now studying at Lalan Integrated Academy, Bhetpara, where along with science stream in class 11 and 12, medical entrance exam – NEET coaching is also offered.
Apart from Arghdeep, there were four other private candidates who made it to the top 20 list. Inehschem Lindem and Biambong A Sangma are both ranked 11th, while Sohan Thapa is ranked 15th and Tofani Suchiang is ranked 19th. Biambong A. Sangma is also a student of Woodland Secondary School, Dalu.
