Madiha Habibullah Khan Pathan of Juhapura, Ahmedabad, has secured 10th rank in the Gujarat Public Service Commission in her first attempt.


Madiha Pathan, 24, was home-taught by her father Habibullah Khan Pathan, who is a class one officer in the Gujarat High Court. Her mother is an advocate.


On her success, Madiha Pathan said, "I had been prepared for the examination from 2019. Due to the lockdown in between, I couldn’t write my examination."

Madiha Pathan has done her schooling in Ahmedabad and graduated in law.


She said “I started preparing for GPSC in 2019 and passed the preliminary exam the same year. However, due to Covid, the final examination was postponed for two years and I could appear only in 2022.” 


Habibullah Khan Pathan said since Madiha’s childhood, he had been pushing her to reach the highest position through education. “Today we are very happy that our girl has made her mark by securing 10th rank in the Gujarat Public Service Commission examination.”


“Parents should provide an environment for studies to their children,” Pathan said and added, “through education, one can achieve a lot in the world, the respect and status that you get from it comes in the fate of very few people.”


Habibullah Khan Pathan said he used to teach Madiha every day for two hours in the morning and in the evening after returning from work. 


“I am proud that I have successfully played the roles of a teacher and a father.
