Senior inspired Eamcet topper

June 8: Nagam Prasanth, the son of an illiterate mason in Visakhapatnam, topped Eamcet in the engineering stream with 157 out of 159 marks. Interestingly, the success story of last year’s Eamcet topper Md Gousejani, son of an autorickshaw driver from his own district, had inspired Prasanth. “Gousejani was my senior. We both studied at Narayana College in Vizag. He is now with Andhra University Engineering College. I was inspired by his achievement of topping the Eamcet last year. Since then, I have been regularly in touch with him. He guided me on the mode of preparation to achieve the top rank. It worked out and I will remain thankful to Gousejani for that,” added Prasanth who had scored 968 out of 1,000 in Intermediate exams this year.

His sister Mahalaxmi is pursuing B.Tech in Vizag. M. Himaja, the topper in the medical stream with 158 out of 159 marks, is the daughter of Mr M.V. Satyanarayana Murthy, a telecom mechanic in BSNL.

A student of Sri Chaitanya, she had secured 976 out of 1,000 in Intermediate exams this year.
“My dream was to become a doctor since my schooldays. I worked hard since Class VIII to realise my dream and focused on Biology concepts. I scored 594 out of 600 in SSC exams. I want to become a neurologist. I want to take admission in Osmania Medical College,” said Himaja.

Students from two institutions excelled in this years’ Eamcet. Of the top-10 scorers in the engineering stream, eight students were from Sri Chaitanya while the remaining two were from Narayana.
In the medical stream, Sri Chaitanya students made a clean sweep by bagging all the top 10 marks.
Of the total 2,69,988 students who appeared for the engineering stream exam across the state, 2,22,857 qualified recording a pass percentage of 82.54. In the medical stream exam, out of 65,736 students who appeared for the exam, 55,995 qualified recording a pass percentage of 85.18.
