The success of students from Rajasthan is not limited to its cities but even students from small towns in Ajmer have made a mark in the competitive exams. Mridul Rathi, from Kishangarh secured 8th rank in the Chartered accountancy exam.
Girls have also staked their claim in competitive exam honors. Isha Gupta of Jaipur secured 13th rank in AIPMT exam.
Without debunking the unusually high success rate Rajasthan enjoys in the competitive exams by merely attributing the students to enjoy a CBSE background to be part of affluent schools in the city, Mrs. Lata Rawat, Principal, Cambridge High court School does a different take and attributes the high success ratio to Jaipur and Kota and to the holistic environment which they provide to develop a competitive spirit.
She goes on further to ascertain that whether it is coaching centers or schools with result oriented teachers, the middle class are progressing towards careers.
Majority of the schools in Rajasthan have allowed coaching centers to conduct classes for their students from the primary level, enabling and drastically increasing their chances of success in competitive exams.
