All high school achievers set their goals to challenge themselves when it comes to attaining 300 plus in an external examination.

Nasinu Muslim College student Siddiqa Ali, did just that by scoring the highest Fiji Year 12 Certificate Examination marks in her school.

This was also confirmed by college principal Safiq Ahmed.

The pure science student had always aimed to score 390 and the good news is, she exceeded that by three marks.

The 18-year-old scored 393 out of 400.

“I was inspired by my parents to study harder,” Siddiqa said.

“As the school’s deputy head girl, I had to manage my time well with the responsibilities and tasks, but did not let that get in the way with my studies.”

With that right attitude, Siddiqa, who aspires to become a doctor, is sure to go places.

“I want to give back to the community,” she said.

Her mother, Shabnum Ali, who is the principal of Ahmadiyya Muslim College, said she had given her the opportunity and the freedom to make her own decisions.

“I am always there to support her and guide her whenever she needs me because that is my responsibility as a mother,” she said.

Ms Ali said parents must also believe in their child and give them the freedom to make decisions.
