Conquer digital distractions and study NCERT books thoroughly: CBSE 10th Term 1 toppers of Apeejay Noida

The students of Apeejay Noida have performed exemplarily in the CBSE 10th Term 1 exams. Out of 290 students who appeared for the test, 148 scored a perfect centum in one or more subjects.



The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) released the class 10 term-1 results on 12 March 2022 and sent the marksheet to the respective schools. Here’s what the Apeejay Noida toppers have to say about their feat.

Talking about the new CBSE MCQ (Multiple Choice Questions) exam pattern, the school topper, Bhavya Tiwari, who scored an impressive 99.5 percent said, “I had to be absolutely thorough with my preparation and try to retain as many details as possible. In MCQ, the question could be asked from any topic. One has to pay attention to details. Reading NCERT books meticulously and making short notes is also important.”

Bhavya said judicious use of the Internet is a must for holistic knowledge. “Self-realisation is key. One has to understand that binge watching movies or TV shows won’t take you anywhere. I believe in judicious use of the internet. There’s so much good academic content that’s available online, that’s why students should have limited access to digital devices for learning.”

Bhavya, who scored full marks in all the subjects, except Social science, has set his sights on pursuing Engineering from IIT Bombay.

Three students, Arpit Gupta, Naisha Rajput and Ratna Srivastava, shared the second position in exams with 99 percent. Arpit Gupta revealed his success mantra. “I solved a lot of question banks and sample papers. MCQ gives you a lot of scoring opportunities provided your preparations are good. Solving sample papers will help you work on your weak areas.”

Sharing his strategy to ace the Term 2 exams which will consist of both objective and subjective questions, Arpit said, “I will stick to my preparations, but I will also do a lot of writing practice. Even if you study well, you still have to be able to write it in the exam within the given time, which takes practice. Also, I took study breaks to increase my productivity.”

Arpit, who too wants to become an engineer, says when you are focussed and have an aim in sight, nothing can distract you.

Naisha Rajput said she treated NCERT Books as Bible and solved a lot of sample papers. “One of the biggest advantages of online education is that you have a lot of time at your disposal.  All you have to do is manage your time efficiently. Going extensively through the NCERT book is sacrosanct. ” Nisha, who is pursuing a six-year course to learn Synthesizer from Prayag Sangeet Samiti, says it’s also critical to indulge in your hobbies. On her future plans, Naisha said, “I have started my IIT JEE preparation as I dream of becoming a Software Engineer.”

Ratna Srivastava said technology addiction is a reality and setting guidelines to create screen rules and sticking to them is important. “I had set screen time limits to balance online and offline activities. I read the NCERT book thoroughly and make notes. I also actively listened to teachers during online classes.”

Parth Chaturvedi, Neelesh Om Jagadish and Reva Singh stood joint third in the school with 98.5 percent.

Parth Chaturvedi said, “I paid full attention during online classes and practiced a lot of sample papers to get rid of my weaknesses. I didn’t give in to the temptation of aimlessly scrolling through my social media feed. I knew the reward that I would get by scoring a good result will be worth all my efforts.”

Neelesh Om Jagadish also stressed on the benefits of reading NCERT books. “NCERT books cover the entire CBSE syllabus and are also enough to cover all the basics and fundamentals on all topics. I was deeply motivated and had the hunger to score well in exams.”

Sharing her recipe for success, Reva Singh said,“I attended the online classes regularly and always listened to my teachers. I was slightly weak in Science, so I took extra classes to iron out my weaknesses. I also solved a lot of sample papers. I completely shunned the smartphone a month before the exam.”

For the CBSE class 10 Term-2 exams, Reva said she will focus more on improving my writing skills.

“The credit for the amazing CBSE 10th Term 1 result goes to all our teachers. This result is the outcome of the dedicated efforts put in by them to effectively engage our students during the pandemic. I am also immensely thankful to the continuous support we have received from our parents. I am grateful to the management for guiding and supporting us every step of the way.”
