Hawker’s son clinches first position in intermediate commerce exams


October 20, 2019

Hard work brought success to Anus Habib’s life as he clinched the first position in the Higher Secondary Certificate Annual Examinations 2019 conducted under the Board of Intermediate of Education Karachi (BIEK).

He is a resident of Hussainabad, one of the neighborhoods of Gulberg Town in Karachi. His father Muhammad Habib is a newspaper hawker, who daily comes to the Empress Market in Saddar where he sells newspapers in buses. He hardly manages to afford the expenses of his son’s education.

“I wished my son (Anus Habib) would become a doctor, but he opted to secure admission in commerce. It was my son’s decision. Therefore, I supported him and finally his hard work has brought success to us,” said Muhammad Habib, adding; “Today I feel proud of my son. He has fulfilled my dreams and the dreams of my family.

Not only Anus Habib’s father, but also his friends, relatives and neighbours are happy for his achievement in the final-year exam of intermediate. They say that Anus Habib has proved himself and he will bring more success in the future.”

Anus Habib says: “When I completed my matriculation in science, I wished to become a doctor. But I took an interest in business and decide to get admission in the field of commerce. It’s a vast filed. In the future, I will attempt the CSS (Central Superior Service) examination.”

He says; “The role of teachers and support of parents made it possible to achieve the first position. Without their support, it was almost impossible to secure the top position in the exam. Before appareling in the exams, I never thought that I would secure this extraordinary position. However, I was somehow sure that I can secure the top position because I had worked hard.”

He says “I attended coaching classes and studied course books for many hours at night. Nothing is impossible. Anyone can get good results. Education is not someone’s private property. Those who work hard will certainly get excellent results.”

The results

The BIEK announced the results, according to which Anus Habib bagged 969 marks out of 1n100 and stood first position.

Muzzamil Ahmed Khan got 965 marks and secured the second position. Urooba Muhammad Riaz with 949 marks clinched third positions.

Hard work pays off

Muzzamil Ahmed Khan, while talking to reporters, said that success depends on hard work. If students want to secure the top position, they have to work hard. “The guidance of teachers and parents brought a better outcome to me. I dedicate my success to my parents and teachers,” said Muzzamil.

Urooba Muhammad Riaz said; “I am very happy with securing the top third position in the exams. Before the exams, I was expecting that my results would be good. I had also bagged a better percentage in the Commerce Part I Examinations 2018.”
