Mishory Munmun, a girl from Pabna, has bagged first place in the MBBS admission test for academic session 2020-21, with a score of 87.25.
According to the results published by the Directorate General of Medical Education (DGME) on Sunday, 48,975 students passed the test with a passing rate of 39.86%. Mishory Munmun, bearing the roll number 2500238, topped the merit list. She took part in the examination from Pabna Medical College center.
Mishory was born in Narayanpur of Radhanagar neighbourhood of Pabna. She got her Secondary School Certificate (SSC) and the Higher Secondary Certificate (HSC) from Pabna Government Girls High School, and did her HSC from Government Edward College.. She attained a GPA-5 in both exams. She also attained the same result in the Junior School Certificate (JSC) exam and completed her primary education from Ichamati Government Primary School.
She is the youngest member in a family of five, with two older sisters and her parents. Her father, Abdul Kayum, works at Square Food and Beverage, and her mother is a housewife.
Speaking about her success in the MBBS admission test, Mishory said, "Since I was a little girl, I always dreamt of becoming a doctor and to stand by the helpless, who are deprived of medical treatment, and to arrange for their proper treatment. Today that dream is being realised."
"The inspiration of my parents has played the biggest role in my success. Besides, the right love and guidance of teachers have always given me courage."
Asked how she achieved such good results, being a student from a Mufassil town, Mishory said, "Success is possible if you study with the right plan, whether it's in the Mufassil or in the city."
Moonmoon's father Abdul Kayum said, "I have tried to educate my children with a thousand hardships on my chest. I never dreamed that she would be the first in the whole country after studying with so much adversity in her life."
Mishory's mother Muslima Begum, said, "I have never been so happy in my life. I am very happy, I can't express it in words."
She said Mishory had been concentrating on her studies since childhood. Even though she didn't study a lot, she thoroughly. As a result, she always had good results in class.
But it was not always easy for Mishory's parents to support her education.
"There was a time when people sowed the seeds of despair in me. I spent my days thinking about my daughter's education in despair. Many of my neighbors wondered why I put her through studies so much. I should see to getting her married quickly instead. I have also been hard and demanding of my daughter. Yet, it is a matter of pride that my daughter has excelled in the exam."
Asked about her future dreams for her daughter, Muslima said, "My child will become a doctor, dedicated to the service of people, and will play a leading role in medical services. She will work for the country and society."
Abul Kalam Mostafa, a former headmaster at Pabna Zilla School and Mishory's neighbour, said she had been talented since childhood. I am proud to be her teacher. This victory belongs to the people of Pabna.
