Of the 33 students from Ace Academy’s various programmes who had qualified for National Level NTSE, 19 students succeeded in securing scholarship of the National Talent Search Examination (NTSE), a prestigious scholarship exam for students of class X. The National level test was held on May 10th, 2015, where about 200 students from the state had appeared and 64 secured scholarship.
“We are very proud of our students. 19 students have cleared the test and I would like to extend my heartiest congratulations to the students and the teachers”, said Dr. Sridhar G, Managing Director, Ace Creative Learning Pvt Ltd.
Sahil Agarwal, student of Ace Academy said, “The competition was high. But I just stayed focussed on the fact that I have to crack the exam, and I think the key to any success is to stay focussed. At the same time I did not try to do much but kept it simple by using only the materials provided to me by Ace Academy, which helped to concentrate and crack this prestigious exam. I aspire to be a software engineer.”
A jubilant Sanjana Srikanth, another student of Ace Academy said, “I was not sure if I would be able to do this, because students from across the country were vying for the honours and I am glad I cracked it. A special thanks to my parents for their continued support and believing that I had it in me. Not to forget the coaching by Ace Academy, who put me through the required rigour, through monitored study hours, regular inputs on strong areas; need to improve areas and the unending supply of study material and mock question papers.” I aspire to do medicine, which is a long journey and with NTSE providing scholarship, for sure I will realise my dream of being a Doctor and specialising in Neuro Science, she added.
