Kalyani Joshi - Breaking All Previous Records.

Kalyani Joshi, who topped the State HSC board exams, was expecting to feature in the merit list but certainly not 99 per cent marks. "I had worked hard and was sure of making it to the top three. But scoring 99 per cent was a surprise. I was not expecting high score in English, but I got 95 marks," said Kalyani. Except English (95) and Physics (99), she scored full marks in all the other subjects. Kalyani's score is 594 out of 600.

Kalyani, a student of Mahatma Gandhi Junior College, Ahmedpur, Latur, had secured 84 per cent in Class X exams. "I toiled hard for two years to improve my performance. I used to study for eight hours a day. My teachers supported me a lot," she said.

Kalyani's father Bhagwant Joshi is junior engineer in PWD in Nanded, while her mother Bhavna is a housewife. "Besides studies, reading, music and swimming are my hobbies. I used to participate in sports during my school days at Gyanmata Vidyalaya, Nanded. I aim to become an electronics engineer," she said.
