“I used to leave home at 6 am and reach the school by 9 am to give offline exams. Although the option was available in online mode also, I wanted to test my preparations for the final board examinations. The pandemic did play havoc with the whole academic year. Nevertheless, I ensured that I revised everything taught in the class on that very day,” said Khushi. Khushi said it was difficult for her to cope with the CISCE syllabus as she did her Class X from the CBSE board.

Sejal Trehan 97.75%

Himanshi, on the contrary, appeared for her pre-boards online but had started preparing in Class XI only by spending a few hours extra. “Covid didn’t affect my preparations but it did demotivate me because there was a lot of uncertainty related to exams.” She added that she took class tests and assignments very seriously even if those were provided in online mode. The sisters aspire to join Delhi University and pursue BCom (Hons). Noorbir Kaur Grewal also topped the tricity by securing 99.75 per cent in the humanities stream.
