Most of the city’s CBSE class 12 toppers in Humanities have one thing in common - a liking for law.
Riddhi Dhananjay Joshi has secured 94.6% to be on the top in the branch. Even as she scored a CGPA of 10 on 10 in her class 10 exams, Joshi chose to do what she is passionate about. “What is the point in studying science when I know I was interested in arts?” said a confident Joshi. She wishes to pursue either law or economics and preferably, law.
This girl draws her inspiration from her father Dhananjay Joshi, an advocate. A student of Delhi Public School, Bengaluru North, she has secured 95 marks each in History, Economics, Maths and Political Science and 93 in English. “I knew very well that last-minute preparations would not help. Hence, I prepared from the beginning,” she said.
During free time, Joshi plays sitar and participates in many debates. Kali Srikari Kancherla from Kumarans Schools has secured 94.4% in Humanities. It was a drive within herself to make her parents proud that pushed her to score well.
