The All-India CBSE Pre-Medical Entrance Examination results here tonight boosted the city’s morale, especially after the dismal showing by its students in IIT examination, when city girl Harsimar Kaur left thousands behind to bag the first position in the country.
Daughter of a Punjab government SDO, Harsimar created history by topping in the national-level examination.
“I was expecting a position in the top-10 ranking but the first rank has come in as a pleasant surprise. I am thrilled at the achievement. The feeling is yet to sink in but the tears of joy in my parent’s eyes are special to me,” said an elated Harsimar.
In a sequel to last year’s fantastic show, city’s three students made it to the top-10 ranking, while five found place in the top-50 ranking. Last year, six students had made it to the top-100 ranking with the best rank for the city being sixth.
“We have finally done it. The city’s performance in various medical entrance examinations has been getting better year after year. When we got rank 1 in AIIMS last year, we knew we would conquer PMT and look, we have done it!” said a local PMT training centre head.
