Gilgit: Adil Shah, HSSC student of Aga Khan Higher Secondary School Gahkuch, has bagged third position at the Aga Khan Board level, according to an announcement, securing 90.18 percent marks.

According to details, Anum Zehra Raza of AKHSS – Karachi has topped the board (91%) while the second position has been achieved by Hafsa Jawed (90.82%) of Habib Public School (Girls), Karachi.

This year, 21 per cent more candidates sat for the exam as compared to last year, the announcement states. The overall pass rate for this year’s HSSC I and II exams was 77.79 and 79.27 per cent respectively.

According to a recent survey conducted by AKU-EB, 76 per cent of its alumni were placed into renowned universities across Pakistan and internationally, a considerable increase from last year. In fact,  international placements of AKU-EB alumni in 2011 saw a drastic increase of 183 per cent, almost three times the 2010 figure. The survey further revealed that 145 local institutions granted admission to AKU-EB alumni.

“AKU-EB works to groom our personalities and does not force us to just learn the syllabus and be done with it. It has improved my self-confidence, understanding and the way I try to learn about anything in my environment. I am so thankful to the Board for opening up my mind and giving me an opportunity to explore the world from a new perspective. AKU-EB is just necessary,” says Raaza Malja, currently enrolled at King Edward Medical College, Lahore – a bright student and position holder from AKU-EB both in SSC and HSSC.
