The recently announced results have freed these students from the pre-result anxiety and jitters.

Commerce topper
Ajit Mangharam
Vidya Niketan School

Even for Shrutika, the result came as a surprise. “I was not expecting such good marks and am really happy now.” “Though there is no celebration as such, my parents are proud of me.

I used to study for nearly two hours a day and from December, I started studying six to seven hours a day.”

“As I found maths and accountancy a little tough, I went for tuitions which helped me understand the subjects better.”

“My family, teachers and friends supported me a lot,” she adds.

Shrutika has now shifted her interest and wants to become a psychologist.

She is applying for BAin the top colleges of the City. She has also applied in the colleges of Mumbai.

Science topper
Deepika Koushik 97.2%
Vidya Niketan School

“I feel good and am very happy with my marks. The result came as a pleasant surprise to me. I am expecting a gift from my parents. It will mostly be a two-wheeler or a four-wheeler,” smiles Deepika. She says constant studying helped her excel in the exams.

“I kept myself busy with studies during study holidays. I studied along with a friend too and this helped me clear my doubts and solve as many question papers as possible.

Though I was a bit tense, my parents supported me all the way. My mom didn’t allow me to eat out as it could affect my health,” she adds. Deepika also has a passion for dancing and is a trained bharatanatyam dancer. She hasn’t decided on her future yet. “I am neither interested in engineering nor medical. I may pursue pure science and become a scientist,” she concludes.

Arts topper
Tania Singla
Bishop Cotton Girls’ School

After making her parents proud, Tania is expecting a gift from them. Since she was a topper  in Class X as well, these results came as no surprise to her.

“I am very happy to have scored 97 in English as it is a difficult subject to score in. I was able to excel in all the subjects as I was passionate about the subjects I had chosen. As the exams neared, I studied nearly six hours a day. I got constant support from my teachers as well as parents. More than scoring high marks, it is important to develop your personality,” says Tania, who had taken an active part in the fests and debates.
She is now awaiting the CLAT results and wants to become a civil servant.
