They come from financially and socially poor backgrounds, but their faith in the government residential school system paid rich dividends. And it was no mean achievement figuring in the top 10 ranks in the Intermediate examinations this year, studying in a remote village far away from the hustle and bustle of town life.

Five students from the Telangana State Residential Junior College, Sarvail in Yadadri district, figured in the top 10 in the Intermediate examinations this year, an achievement that went unnoticed in the publicity blitzkrieg of private colleges. However, the government recognised their performance and felicitated them with laptops worth ₹ 45,000 each.

The laptops were presented by Deputy Chief Minister Kadiyam Srihari at the Secretariat and he said it showcased the power of government institutions and the potential they have in throwing up State rankers. The awardees included Ch. Saicharan, State 2nd ranker in MPC; D. Ahmed Waseem, who got 9th rank, P. Vasantha Reddy and J. Bharathu Kumar, who secured 10th rank and D. Nipun Rai, who was at 4th place in the BiPC stream.

The students met the Prinicpal Secretary, Higher Education, Ranjeev Acharya, who said it was a commendable achievement and lauded the efforts of the teachers who made it possible.

The TSREI Secretary, Seshu Kumari, explained the effort that went into identifying good teachers and providing them with the right atmosphere to excel. “We want to take TSRJC, Sarvail, on par with the erstwhile APRJC, Nagarjunsagar, which was the first option of all State SSC toppers.

The achievers were elated that they were getting recognised on a par with private college students, who generally hog the limelight during the results period. “Commitment from teachers and their focussed guidance coupled with our hardwork is the reason for the success,” they said in unison.

TSRJC Sarvail Principal Surender Reddy said that all these students also secured good marks and ranks in the JEE Main. They would surely clear the JEE Advanced to get into the top IITs, he added. Mr. Reddy said that 14 students from the TSRJC Sarvail, 7 from TSRJC, Hasanparthy and one each from TSRJC L.B. Nagar and Nagaram qualified for the JEE Advanced.
