Imphal, 10th September, 2017 (DIPR): Deputy Chief Minister Shri Yumnam Joykumar Singh said, success in high and higher secondary examinations should be the base for further achievements for students. He was speaking at the Second Meritorious Award Distribution Ceremony of United Club and Library (UCAL), held at Uripok Khwairak Seleungba Leirak Community Hall in Imphal today.
Deputy Chief Minister said, students should realize that success in examinations is the base through which their career should be made. Nowadays, tough competition among students has been increasing and scoring in the examinations has considerably been increased. He said, meritorious means not only excellent in text books but also to be good enough in other areas of knowledge acquisition. Ability to think and application of mind are the factors that students can have a brilliant career opportunity in their lives. Whatever they learn in their learning days should be applied in the days when learning options are over.
Sri Joykumar Singh said, there have been a number of meritorious students for the last many years in the State. However, only a few can pass UPSC, MPSC and other Competitive Examinations. There is the need to introspect the career options made by the students.
