It was day of celebrations in private schools across Ludhiana after Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) declared the Class 12 board examination results on Sunday.

Deeba Goyal, a commerce student from Kundan Vidya Mandir School topped the city with 98.6% marks.

The second position went to Gunpreet Kaur of DAV Public School, BRS Nagar, who scored 98.4% in the non- medical stream. Nitika Gupta, of Kundan Vidya Mandir School, came third, scoring 98.2 % marks in humanities.

Approximately 15,000 students from Ludhiana district appeared in the Class 12 exams.

Topper speak

Deeba’s dream is to become a financial consultant. Interestingly, she was expecting a 100% result but is happy that she topped the district. “Both my parents supported me due to which I have been able to top the district,” she said.

How does the district topper relax? “I read books but I don’t like watching television,” she said. “I used to utilise my time revising the basic concepts — that is why I was sure that I will score well in the exams. I left playing badminton after Class 10 as I wanted to concentrate on my studies,” she added.

She has scored 100 marks in three subjects: economics, accounts and business studies. Her father Rajeev Goyal is a vastu consultant and mother Rachna Goyal is a homemaker.
