Afzal scored 97.91% marks in XII and Jasmin 99.00% marks in X in 2010. An official report from AFMI from Farmington, Michigan says that the, “Indian students continue to break new records in academic achievement”. The AFMI has taken a step forward than its usual convention taking more students, numbering ten instead of its usual convention of five in class X, since the academic excellence is far satisfactory. AFMI also recognizes that the increased number (7) of girls topping the list of ten deserves commendation.

“Apart from the medals each student will receive a cash award and in the case of need would be considered for further scholarships.”

Top three scorers from each state will also get Gold, Silver, and Bronze medals.

“A recent statistical study by Dr. Zafar Khan (Professor at Eastern Michigan University) also testifies to this fact,the record breaking scores of India’s Muslim students, year after year, reveal that AFMI’s 19 year old awards program has developed a keen sense for academic excellence in the community” the report observes.

The students will be honoured at the XIX Annual Convention of AFMI in Ahmedabad on Dec. 25-26, 2010.

AFMI especially urges the NRIs to attend its annual convention to encourage the budding scholars. “If you plan to attend please email our India office at [email protected]” asks the report.
