‘If you have a clear understanding of concepts, your job becomes easy’: Apeejay Mahavir Marg CBSE class 12 toppers

The school toppers shared how the teachers held doubt-clearing classes after school hours to help clear concepts



For Aditya Chopra, his CBSE class 12 term I marks came as a “wonderful surprise”. The Commerce student, who topped Apeejay School, Mahavir Marg, with 96.41 per cent said, “My parents were proud to see my photo in the newspaper and shared the news with their friends.”

Chopra, who scored full marks in Business Studies, Economics, and Physical Education, and 39 out of 40 in Accounts, added, “First, I read my books thoroughly. I also managed to solve many sample papers, which helped me get a grip on the question pattern. For term II, I make sure to practice Accounts-related questions for an hour daily. I am also devoting time to the other subjects.”

From the medical stream, Aditya Kaushal made his school proud by scoring 95 per cent. “I was at home when I got to know my marks from someone else since the result was put on the school’s notice board. I am quite satisfied with my result.”

Stressing the importance of clearing concepts, he said, “If you have a hold on the MCQ pattern and a clear understanding of concepts, your job becomes easy. Especially in Physics, the questions can be twisted in any way but if you know the concept, you will easily crack it.”

Kaushal, who has been preparing for the National Eligibility Cum Entrance Test (NEET), aims to study at the Maulana Azad Institute of Dental Sciences, New Delhi. “But let’s see where my rank takes me. In the past two years, I went to school only for practicals. In fact, the teachers told us to focus on preparing for the exam more than the practicals and prepare for NEET simultaneously, which I have been doing for two years now,” he further mentioned.  

For Rishabh Jain too, who topped the non-medical stream with 93.94 per cent, the CBSE board exam was not that difficult. “CBSE term I was not that hard for me since I have been preparing for JEE Mains. The syllabus for both is almost the same. I had already practised the same type of questions but of a more advanced level. In that sense, the board exam was like revision.”

“My teachers congratulated me for scoring the highest in my stream. After coming home, I told my father that I had topped the non-medical stream and he was elated.”

To help students, the teachers at Apeejay Mahavir Marg also held doubt-clearing classes after school hours, revealed Jain. “I attended a couple of the classes and found them to be very helpful.”

Sharing easy tips to ace the board exam, he added, “For MCQ, you can prepare in much less time if you understand the topics clearly.”

Equally important is to keep calm while writing the exam. Kaushal said, “While reading the question paper, you may not be able to figure out a certain question. The rule is to complete the other questions first and get back to it once you are done with the rest. Else, you will end up wasting time.”

“Academic Excellence has always been the hallmark of Apeejay School, Mahavir Marg, Jalandhar. I am proud that our students have been raising the bar of academic achievements every year. I congratulate them and their parents on their remarkable achievements.”
