Patna: Rohit Kumar, a BSc-BEd student of 2013-17 batch, was ecstatic after receiving three gold medals at the annual convocation of Central University of South Bihar.
Rohit, son of a farmer at Lakhisarai, received the chancellor gold medal (given to the university topper of the batch), school gold medal (schools/faculties topper) and department gold medal (for the department topper).
Rohit, who secured 91 percent in BSc-BEd, said: “After completing my undergraduation from Central University of South Bihar, I am going to pursue MSc in chemistry from IIT-Kharagpur.”
He said the teaching-learning module at CUSB is the best as teachers pay a great deal of attention on students’ doubts.
Echoing the views of Rohit, MSc biotechnology topper Premlata Kumari of 2015-17 batch, who also secured the chancellor gold medal, school gold medal and department gold medal, said: “The university not only concentrates on academic excellence but focuses on all-round development of the students.”
Premlata has secured 92.9 percent in MSc biotechnology and plans to pursue PhD from Institute of Life Sciences, Bhubaneswar. Premlata, whose father and brothers are in the police department, wants to pursue a career in teaching.
“After completing my PhD from Bhubaneswar I want to work as a teacher as there is better scope. Also I can carry out research work while teaching at a reputable university,” Premlata said.
At the second convocation of CUSB, five students of 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017 batches received three gold medals for academic excellence.

Bhatkar said the country’s youths have a huge potential, which can make India a stronger and prosperous country. He asked the students to focus more on research.
“It is a great opportunity for students studying at CUSB as they can utilise their opportunity not only for academic excellence but for the development of the society.”
