Tamil students celebrated for achieving top grades in the North-East

Several bright Tamil students from Mullaitivu and Mannar districts were celebrated after A-level examination results were released last week. Despite  various challenges brought by the coronavirus pandemic, including the intensifying militarisation in the North-East regions of the island, the successes of these students became a great cause for celebration. 

Mullaitivu district

Dushyanthan Dhanujan, who grew up under the care of his maternal grandfather after losing both his parents, ranked 13th in the district with a score of 3A in the field of arts. 

Pathmanathan Sangavi, a student from the Commerce section of Mul / Mallavi Central College, secured the 2nd place in the district by obtaining 3A marks.

Sangavi told Tamil Guardian, 

“I have reached this stage by working diligently day and night for many days. My parents, teachers and principal all contribute to this success.”

“What I would like to advise my younger brothers and sisters is that you too can get good results if you look back at your notes on the same day that you come home from school or private classes,” she added.
