Ludhiana, August 3

The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has declared Class X results today and most of the students have passed the examinations, scoring good marks.

Shivam Gupta of Kundan Vidya Mandir (KVM), here, has topped the district by scoring 99.6 per cent marks. Keen to be a computer engineer from the IIT, Shivam studies on a regular basis but sitting hours are not that prolonged. As his mother says: “He studies in a relaxed manner and remains always focused and dedicated.”

His father Deepak Gupta is a businessman while mother Ruchika is a homemaker. The proud mother said: “He loves cricket and plays the game with his friends. Besides, he has recently got the 4th rank in the state in the NTSE. In Ludhiana district, he bagged the top spot.”

Shivam said his school principal and teachers were too helpful whenever any kind of assistance was required. His class teacher motivates him to always do better in life.

Besides, Harman Khatra and Jhanvi of the KVM school and Sukhmanpreet Kaur from Guru Nanak Public School have scored 99.2 per cent marks in Class X.

Jhanvi of Kundan Vidya Mandir is now pursuing Class XI (medical). A resident of Krishna Nagar, she wants to be a surgeon.

She says:” We should be consistent and work hard.”

Arushi Sharma of the KVM has got 99 per cent marks. With her, Arkita from Jesus Sacred Heart School, South City, has got 99 per cent marks. Arkita is now pursuing Class XI (medical). She wants to be a cardiologist. Her parents are government schoolteachers. She loves listening to music and reading books.

Since no board exams were held this year due to Covid-19, the results are compiled by the schools on the basis of performance of students in all internal exams.

“Everything was done internally by the schoolteachers. The schools would provide maximum marks to their students. Results are compiled on the basis of those marks,” said the principal of a school, wishing not to be quoted.

She added that hardly there would be any student who would not be passed. In fact, all students must have got marks beyond their imagination, said the principal.

While there was a improvement in the passing percentage as compared to the last year as over 17,000 students across the country had been placed under the compartment category. These students would appear in an offline exam on August 16, the CBSE said.

Since the schools are opened now, many of the students got to know about the results at their schools only. Nitya, a student of Class X, said she had taken the mobile in school and when she got to know that she had scored 87 per cent marks, she immediately texted her parents to break the news since they were not aware about her roll number. The students looked happy and excited after declaration of the results.
