Simulata High School in Jamui has again made its mark in the matric results (Class X) with maximum students in Bihar's top 10 being from this school.
Despite the stellar performance, teachers are a bit disappointed because after producing the state topper for the last three consecutive years, they missed the feat by a whisker this year.
Topper Prem Kumar, who is from Lakhisarai district, has scored 93 percent while the second topper, Bhavya Kumari, from Simultala High School obtained 92.8 percent. Her batchmate Harshita bagged the third position in the state.
Eleven students figure in the list of top ten as many students have got the same marks. School principal Rajeev Ranjan said, “I was hoping the first position would also rest with us. I can understand every year it can’t happen. Overall, I am satisfied with the result.”
This year, five students of the school also cleared the IIT JEE Advance Exam which is a huge achievement for a government school in the state.
Chief Minister Nitish Kumar established Simultala Awasiya Vidyalaya in 2010 amid much fanfare. The school was an answer to demands for a school in the state which could meet the standards of the famous Netarhat School in Jharkhand.
Students are admitted in this school on the basis of a written test and interview. The school has also produced stellar results in the intermediate examination with Khushboo Kumari being declared the state topper in the science stream.
