During evaluation, Jamats should consider a minimum overall percentage of 75% for a student to qualify for best student award.

Local Jamaats are specifically requested to give more importance to the award this year so that applications are received from all the local Jamaats. Jamaats/Education representatives must put in extra effort to publicize and make announcements at different Community centers and functions (e.g. Madressah, khushali, wafat, etc) to draw the attention of students to seriously consider applying for the award.

The Best Student Award is most encouraging for our students who have just completed the first leg of their secondary education.  In addition, certificates, letters of appreciation and recognition, enable our students to take significant steps towards acquiring higher education. 

The Best Student Award procures them with a sense of achievement at an early stage in life.
