Hashan HasalankaB.Sc. Engineering (Hons.) in Civil Engineering
I, Hashan Hasalanka have completed my G.C.E. Advanced Level in 2012 in the Physical Science stream. I have obtained 3A’s with a Z-Score of 2.6009 and was ranked 14th in the Colombo district and 40th in the island. Along with this, I got selected to the University of Moratuwa and completed my engineering degree with a First Class by obtaining B.Sc. Engineering (Hons.) in Civil Engineering. Currently, I’m following a Master in Philosophy (MPhil) degree specialized in Structural Engineering at the University of Moratuwa to pursue my carrier at the Postgraduate Level.
I joined Charitha sir’s class from the very beginning of my AL’s and as I could remember, there were only 17 students in the whole class and then the rest is history. This was mainly because of the way he teaches, the attractive teaching style, the way he guides the students to the exam and many more. The paper classes, as well as the mock exams on well planned time intervals under the real AL exam environment, add more sparkles to the way he guides the students towards the success path.
There are things that I admire the most among the things which I learned under the guidance of him. Those are inspiration and encouragement to do the best and be the best in what you do. It is not just the exam you want to win, it is the life and you get plenty of worth and valuable advice regarding that from Charitha sir and in his words, it is “Be the author of your own life story” and I believe that I became the author of mine. I remember him saying once, “Reach the top of your career and be the best in what you do where no one can replace you”, which is another thing I have added to my priority list. Moreover, Charitha sir is one of the iconic respectable characters that I admire the most in my life. I’m forever grateful to have learned from him, to have worked with him and will continue to do so in the future too.
