HM : Matriculation

SPHS (St. Paul’s High School) used to display a “Roll of Honor”. It mainly lists those who finish in the top three positions in the Matriculation examination. It sometimes lists a “block” (1st to 4th in 1959, 1st to 5th in 1963). After nationalization, the Roll of Honor went missing. It was recovered by U Soe Tin (Taw Win Hnin Si / Royal Rose Restaurant).

Dr. Thane Oke Kyaw Myint missed the top position by 5 marks. The Brothers were not delighted even though many won scholarship.

Dr. Min Lwin lost to Dr. Cherry Hlaing.

Bernard Khaw scored 80+ in English. Sadly, he could not apply for professional courses in Burma. It was a brain drain.
