Learn concepts thoroughly; give real-life examples in the papers: CBSE Class 12 toppers share their success mantras

Girls from Apeejay School, Pitampura shine in Board exam results



Apeejay School, Pitampura witnessed stellar results in the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) Class 12 results. Girls outperformed boys in the school, bagging the top ranks. Be it Science, Commerce or Humanities, students showcased their best in every stream.

The school received 4.14 distinctions per student and 11 students scored a percent centum in Physics, Mathematics, Business Studies, Accountancy, Computer Science and Psychology. A total of 61 students secured 90% and above in the exams. 93 students scored between 75% – 89% and 28 students fell into 60% – 74% aggregate. The school average is 84.7%.

Ishika Singh, who is the topper from the Commerce stream with 97.4% said, “I am really overwhelmed about my result. I always dreamt of being a school topper and have finally achieved it. It feels great! For me, subjects like Mathematics and Accountancy took lots of focus and practice. I aspire to join the University of Delhi going forward. My strategy for Board exams was to be consistent each day. What really worked for me was written practice. I used to learn all the concepts by writing them down. This exercise was helpful for better understanding.”

Science (Non-Medical) topper, Priya Jain who recorded a whopping 97% in the CBSE Class 12 examinations did not expect such a high score. She said, My focus was to understand the concepts thoroughly. I was also preparing for JEE examinations simultaneously as I aspire to be part of a good engineering college. My tips to fellow juniors is to revise NCERT and attend classes regularly.”

She further added, “I credit my school teachers for my achievement. I feel they taught me very well. My parents too boosted my confidence whenever I felt low. The greatest thing was my parents did not pressurise me at all. They believed in me, and so, I believed in myself. During Covid-19, I saved on the travel time and limited my screen usage too for better preparation. This really worked in my favour. I also took breaks often and used to go for walks alone.”

Humanities topper with 96.4% Malvika Tiwari opted for Social Sciences due to her deep interest in the subjects. Her scores are Economics (99), History (99), Mathematics (95), English (95) and Political Science (94). She said, “I am quite happy about the results. I am also fortunate to have cracked the Common Law Admission Test (CLAT) examinations this year. Now, I am looking forward to joining the National Law University, Sonepat. As there are so many developments happening in the country’s legal sector, I chose this field to bring a positive change. I feel this is a great time to contribute towards the growth and upliftment of women and the economically weaker sections. As a country, we are heading in the right direction and I want to be part of that movement.”

Further, she stated, “I give credit for my academic achievements to all my subject teachers, parents, my brother and Principal Ma’am. Without them, nothing could have been possible. The major challenge for me was to manage the CLAT exam with my Boards. It did take a toll on me and many times I had negative thoughts and feelings of anxiety. I overcame it with consistency and time-management. And so, my advice to juniors is believe in yourself and be self-paced. The key to all the answers I wrote in my exam was to provide real-life examples. I attempted to showcase my analytical ability in the papers.”

Vanshica Soni, another topper from Humanities with the same percentage as Malvika expressed that her grandmother is her driving force. “My grandmother is a lawyer and was a top ranker at the University of Delhi. During her course of study, there were very few opportunities for women. She tells me how only 2-3 girls were there in her class. Growing up, I have heard so many stories from her about the cases she fought. I aspire to become like her. For my academic achievement, I credit my parents and teachers. They made me feel that I can overcome any kind of obstacle in my journey and kept me motivated. To relieve my stress, I also performed Kathak at home which gave me the necessary break,” she mentioned.

“Our students have made us proud with their triumphant streak. May they sail on all the tides in their voyage to find a glittering future! It will be a long excursion yet I know they will get all that they have dreamt for. Well done!”
