Bihar Board Class 12 topper Sakshy Kumari wants to become an IAS officer
Bihar Board Intermediate exam result was announced on March 24 and over 6.28 lakh students appeared from the arts stream.
Like most arts stream students a 18 year old Sakshy Kumari who has topped the Bihar School Examination Board (BSEB) class 12 examination plans to prepare for the civil services examination. However, this wasn’t her first choice. She wanted to take up the science stream after class 10, however lack of facilities in her village at West Champaran forced her to take humanities. Bihar Board Intermediate exam result was announced on March 24 and over 6.28 lakh students appeared from the arts stream. Sakshy scored 474 marks out of 500 with 96 marks in history, 93 in geography, 47 in NRB (None Rashtra Bhasha), 96 in economics and 47 in English and 96 in LL (English).
The topper wants to take up Economics in her graduation, but she is concerned as the family income and her village educational infrastructure may pose challenges. Sakshy is concerned about girls’ education and wishes to develop infrastructure in her block so that students will not get deprived of higher studies. She believes if the government promises women reservation in civil services, many parents will encourage their daughters to pursue higher studies.
