It's 10th exam results and another great performance by the students. Most important point to note is – When these kids were in 7th std and took the entrance exam to become eligible for scholarship (from 8th standard), none of these kids passed the entrance exam. Their performance in entrance exam was below par. Trust took a decision to take these kids to tuitions without any scholarship and invest the time and money on teaching at tuition classes. These students were given scholarships only after assessing their performance in 8th and 9th standard examinations. As we see today, from the level they were in, they have progressed immensely and now few of them passed with distinction. The performance of the students are worth a grand salute. Congratulations and big thanks to the teachers as well.
