The winners' streak

Aar ya paar. This is the feeling any student goes through before learning about his/her annual results and when it is a case of Std XII, no matter the preparation levels, butterflies in the stomach are but natural on the day that the results are declared - like they were yesterday when the CBSE made its announcements.

The pass percentage was 82.10 per cent, up from last year’s 80.19 per cent and as usual, girls did better than boys. Although, the over all pass percentage is highest in Chennai with 91.83 per cent, Delhi too has its share of toppers. Metrolife spoke to a few ‘bookworms’ to know their reactions.

Medhavi Malik from Delhi Public School, R K Puram, the school topper scored 98 per cent in Commerce. “I am really happy with my results and so are my parents. My accounts teacher broke the news to me and since then I have been busy on the phone and with friends. I am also excited with my newly found fame and giving interviews since morning.” Talking about her future plans, she says, “My top priority is Delhi University (DU) definitely and I want to pursue my career in management studies.”

Vanshika Baoni from Amity, Noida scored 97.8 per cent, and states that she been a topper in her class for the last seven years. “I along with my twin sister Anshika are the toppers of our school. I am really excited to know my results and would like to become a software or an electronics engineer. But, only after my IIT exams early next month will I be able to assess things better.”

Her sister Anshika who scored 96.5 per cent too shares her happiness, “The feeling is still sinking in. I feel on top of the world right now. Like Vanshika I too aspire to make it to the IIT and want to become an engineer and will sit for the entrance.”

Modern School, Barakhamba too has its champion. Bhavya Aggarwal bagged the top slot and scored 98.6 per cent in Commerce. “This is biggest thing till date and I am really thrilled with this development. DU is my definite choice in my future.” So, any personal preferences in terms of colleges? “Yes, I would apply in Shri Ram College of Commerce (SRCC) and Shaheed Sukhdev College of Business Studies definitely and later will do an MBA.”

After the brainstorming examination sessions, these students have definitely made a mark for themselves and hope they carry forward this winning streak further!
