Georgetown June 30 2008:

As reported in Guyana Chronicle:  For Shahrazaad Khan it was surprising as she too, like the other students was not expecting to be placed among the country’s top 10. Shahrazaed secured the fourth place position with a total of 552 marks. Like her fellow classmate, Shahrazaad said that she would rather stay at her current school instead of going to the school at which she would be placed.

She said that she was confident of doing well at the exams but not that well. Now that the exams results are out Shahrazaad said that she feels much more relaxed and will be looking forward to some form of relaxation now that the anxiety is all over with.

As reported in Starbroek News:

Shahrazaad Khan, 11, of LBI, East Coast Demerara grabbed the fourth spot in the country.

The soft spoken girl said she was shocked after learning how well she did and was on her way home when she got the news. She said her mother who was with her turned around and drove back to the school so she could celebrate with her teachers and classmates.

She recalled that the examinations' preparation was hard and pointed out that she took a decision not to stay up too late. Shahrazaad loves reading and is a huge fan of author, JK Rowling. She has read every book in the Harry Potter series and plans on reading anything new from the author.

She is undecided on a particular career but plans on working extremely hard as she continues with her studies. Shahrazaad said her parents; Sabina and Shazadh Khan offered endless support and that her teachers were the best. She is looking forward to attending QC later this year.
