Pritisheel Kirti of Labasa Sangam (SKM) College was astonished when she scored the highest marks for the Northern Division in the 2014 Fiji Seventh Form Examination.

Pritisheel scored a total of 360 marks out of 400.

She scored 90 in English, 90 in Maths, 91 in Biology, 89 in Chemistry and 86 in Physics.

The total marks are calculated from English, which is a compulsory subject, and the three highest scoring subjects.

“I did not expect to be the highest in the North; I just wanted to score a good mark to take me to medical school for a MBBS Programme,” Pritisheel said.

The school had a 91 per cent pass rate for the Year 13 exams.

Raising in a single parent home after her father passed away when she was a year old made her determined to repay her mother for raising her and her older sister sister.

The 18-year old Vunivau Settlement resident also did not disappoint the high expectations of her teachers.

“Looking at the happy faces of people who know me has even made me an even happier person,” she said.

“I thank the staff and colleagues in school for the quality education and support and my mom especially for she was my role model.

“Dad died when I was a year old so my mom worked hard to raise me and my older sister up.”

44-year-old Mani Lata felt nothing but pride and joy for her younger daughter who is well on her way to achieving her dream.

“I am just really proud of her and to witness her working towards her dream in becoming a doctor,” she said.

Pritisheel will wait for acceptance from the Fiji School of Medicine as she enjoys her holiday job at the Labasa Janta Bookstore.
