Ria Dipashna Devi has set a benchmark for her school by scoring 391/400 in her Fiji Year 12 Certificate Examination last year.

The exemplary student of Sadhu Kuppuswamy Memorial College in Nadi is also the head girl.

She scored:

  • English – 94 
  • Maths – 100 
  • Chemistry – 99 
  • Physics – 98 

School counsellor, Shelvin Reddy said since the establishment of the school in 1954 no student had attained such marks.

“She has set the benchmark for the college,” Mr Reddy said.

Her father, Vinesh Mistry, who is also a teacher at the school said, his daughter had always been focused.

From the beginning of the year, she set her goals to score above 390 and she achieved it.

It was not easy to compete with other bright students in her form but she has proved herself.

Ria hopes to get a Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS).

“Along the way, there was peer pressure and I tried very hard not to get addicted to social media Facebook, but I have overcome all those and stood focused to my goals,” she said.

There were 23 students who scored 350 plus an 127 students who scored 250 plus. A total of 170 students are expected to enrol for Year 13 at the school this year.
