Kochi: As social media gets flooded with praises for those who scored high in the SSLC examinations, UPSC rank holder from Malappuram district had something different to share from his own life - with the low scorers.
Mohammed Sajad, who secured the 390th rank in civil service examination, shared how he achieved the goal after getting comparatively low score in SSLC examination. Sajad had got 74% in SSLC examination. "Though the mark was not too low, I was ranked behind many in the class", Sajad says in his Facebook post.
As he could not get a seat for science batch with such a score, he was compelled to leave Malappuram Navodaya School where he had studied right from the lower primary classes. But, opting for humanities instead of science became a turning point in his life. The sense of loss coupled with persistence inspired him to clear many examinations including civil service. The achievement is a reply to the many who asked why humanities chosen over science, Sajad says.
The new civil servant has only one thing to say to all those who missed a full A+ and those who failed: Picture abhi bi baaki heai!
Sajad did not forget to appreciate those who scored high and achieved full A+.
Social media witnessed so many shares and likes for the post which was described as inspiring by many.
