Needless to say, every student wants to score the highest marks and some dream to get full marks as well. But to what extent can one go for this?
In a surprising incident, a high school student who got 624 marks out of 625 was not satisfied with the result and for the same, he sent his papers for re-evaluation. Even more amazingly, he got that one extra mark, making the total to 625 out of 625.
We are talking about Mohammad Kaif Mulla who became the sole topper in class 10 exams of Karnataka state board after getting full marks. He wanted to know why and where he couldn’t score that one mark and that’s what made him send papers for re-evaluation.
He studies in St Xavier’s High School, Belgaum, and got 100% marks in each subject except Science. After the re-evaluation result, he has got the top position among 13 lakh students.
He wants to become an IAS officer and wants to go for Science stream in intermediate. Kaif’s parents are teachers; while his father Haroon Rashid Mulla teaches Urdu in a government primary school, his mother Parveen is a Kannada teacher in a government high school.
Here’s what Kaif told TwoCircles.net,
“I was fully confident of getting 100% marks because after answering the papers, I confirmed all my written answers with my teachers, notebooks and model answer sheet. Fortunately, I found my all the answers were absolutely correct. Earlier, I got 624 (99.86%) marks but after re-evaluation, my result was as per my expectation.”
As per Haroon Rashid Mulla, Kaif never got distracted by social media or any such similar thing. In his words,
“Kaif is a very studios child who never wastes his time on useless things like social media etc. I want him to continue studying hard in order to achieve excellence at a higher level.”
Kaif’s obsession with marks is unacceptable on the part of netizens and this is how they trolled him on Facebook:
