Jammu girl Era Gupta gets 2nd rank in ICSE class-X across Karnataka

By scoring a whopping 98.4% marks in ICSE class 10th exams, Jammu girl Era Gupta, daughter of Ashwani Gupta and Kanchan Sharma achieved a rare distinction in fetching second rank across Karnataka State. A bright student of Bishop Cotton School Bengaluru, Era Gupta’s consistent devotion towards studies helped her in achieving this remarkable goal. She also shared the honour of girl topper of the Karnataka State besides being ranked first in her School.
Era’s proud father, Ashwani, a post graduate in civil engineering and currently working as vice president in an MNC said that reason behind her success is her utmost dedication and hardwork. However, in his solemn message Ashwani gave credit to Almighty for blessing his family with such a bounty.
Kanchan Sharma, Era’s mother, who is an architect by profession acknowledged her daughter’s acumen and insightful thinking for achieving this big target.
With tears in eyes, Hans Raj Sharma retired Executive Engineer of J&K State Government and Tara Sharma, Era’s maternal grandparents, residents of Shakti Nagar, in one voice thanked Bawe Wali Mata for ensuring their granddaughter’s success that too in a far off State of Karnataka.
Era Gupta in her message gave entire credit to her parents for always being supportive and helpful in all her endeavours.
“With self-belief and utmost trust in the Almighty I began to work towards my goal and today I stood second in Karnataka State,” Era said.
“Honestly, I had been expecting a 95% or so but 98.4% is indeed a dream come true for me, my parents and teachers,” Era said with joy. Giving an advise on handling stress before exams, Era said, “Just keep your cool. If one studies regularly the whole year, then ISCE board exams would not be a big deal.”
“ICSE boards require a student to study hard but at the same time study smart so I would only like to tell the students preparing for 2017 ICSE boards that revision of all the subjects is very important because unless you aren’t able to recall what you have learnt then studying for those long hours will indeed go in vain with insignificant output,”
she said.
