Calvin Miller scored 832 marks out of a total of 1200, results of which were announced yesterday.
Miller drowned when a ship allegedly collided with the boat in which he was fishing along with four others in the sea off the Pamban coast. The others were rescued by fishermen of another boat.
His friends and relatives, who came to his house to inform his parents of the results recalled that Calvin was very active and would help them in fishing during holidays.
