She has secured the third position in Higher Secondary 2019. Her total marks is 494 out of 500.

Barnali has been studying in Nabagram Hiralal Balika Vidyalaya since she was in class 5. She always loved studying and was a brilliant student since childhood. She never missed her classes and always stood out among the rest because of her impeccable results. Her parents could not help her out much with studies but always stood by her throughout.

After school, she often took help from teachers whenever needed. Such was the magnitude of her sincerity and perseverance.
