The Manipur Council of Higher Secondary Education declared the Class 12th results on May 3, 2018 on¬† the official website manresults.nic.in. Selina Keisham topped the higher secondary examination with securing 482 marks.
However even after being the overall topper Selina could not manage to get a seat at St.Stephen’s first cut-off list. Although,being the science stream topper she could not get a place in one of the most prestigious colleges of Delhi University.She is a civil aspirant and applied for History (Hons) but couldn’t make it up to the mark as the cut-off stood at 98 percent for science stream for History (Hons). The cut-off for History (Hons) for science stream is 98 percent , for commerce it is the same – 98 percent and for¬† humanities it is 96.5 percent and a rise of¬† 0.25 – 0.5 percentage in cut-offs was evident as compared to last year.
“If I get a chance to work in the state education department, I will try to eradicate the corruption from the education system , and also want to modernize the board syllabus at a par with all centre boards like CBSE, ICSE ,” she told Indian Express in an interview.
Being a science student she did not want to follow the stereotype of getting into medical or engineering college rather wanted to pursue History (Hons) and become a civil servant and focussed on renowned North Campus colleges like St.Stephens College and Miranda House.
