Beaconhouse student attains 28 A grades in O Level exams
Islamabad: A student of Beaconhouse Complex Islamabad, Syed Zohaib Asad, astonished every one by acquiring 28 A s in Cambridge O Level examination, setting a new record at international level.

Zohaib Asad became an Outstanding Cambridge Learner Award Winner after gaining higher marks in June 2010 Cambridge O Level examinations in the course Human and Social Biology .

Earlier, Ibrahim Shahid, another student of Beaconhouse School System, has attained 23 A s in O Level exams and made a record.

Syed Zohaib Asad has emerged as a symbol of pride for the nation through gaining such remarkable success that his teachers and fellows are feeling pride of having interaction with him.

Zohaib first took medicine as his domain of subjects but turned to Economics and Business soon after discovering his interest and potential. I changed my subjects in the middle of O Level study period and prepared exams in the time period of six months, he said.

I spared seven to eight hours a day for the preparation of my exams with full concentration. It is important to give quality time to the studies with entire focus on every subject, Zohaib said.

Zohaib is eager to serve his country after studies and want to go for specialisation in Economics and join Finance Ministry. He also urged the students not to strive for breaking records but serve the country with dedication.

For Zohaib, home environment plays greater role in the success of any student as he says, I am fortunate to have such parents who provided me a relaxed atmosphere to concentrate fully on my studies.

Zohaib expressed dissatisfaction over prevailing discriminatory educational system in the country and said that there must be unified curricula and equal access to educational opportunities for every child.

Students must not rely on guides, key books and guess papers as well as rote learning for preparation of exams and thoroughly comprehend the concepts as it could better develop analytical approach in them, he said. Identifying talent or potential of the students at their teenage can help adopt career oriented studies and productive fields in a long run. Parents and teachers must invoke the talents in students and not impose their own ideas, he said.

Students must have confidence in their inner abilities and should work for making a better Pakistan, he said.

He attributes his success to the efforts of Principal of Beaconhouse Educational Complex, Mrs Mehar Asad and Chief Examination Officer, Fauzia Rizwan and his parents Dr Saeed Asad Ali and Talat Jabeen Shirazi.

Zohaib is fond of playing cricket and football and take part in contests. Zohaib s father is a doctor and his mother has done Masters in Islamic Studies.

Zohaib idealises Quaid-e-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah as a role model and wants to follow his footsteps and contribute for his country and giving it recognition.
