Jaipur’s Ayush Jain is elated after scoring an impressive 98.4% in his Class 12 board examinations, the results of which were declared by Central board of Secondary Education (CBSE) on Saturday.
A student of Saint Xavier’s School, Jain scored the highest in Jaipur with an exceptional 99 in chemistry and physics and a 98 in biology. But it was Informatics Practices that got him a perfect 100.
“The list of people whom I would like to credit for the result is too long but obviously my father and mother would come first,” Jain said.
Jain wants to become a doctor like his father and credits him for being the inspiration in his life. “I have already started preparing for AIPMT,” Jain said.
“My friends are pulling my leg over my marks,” he adds when asked about his friends’ reactions.
Another topper, Siddhartha Sharma, couldn’t believe his marks when he saw them for the first time. An average scorer in pre-board exams, it took a special teacher for him to push him to score a 96 .6% in boards.
Sharma, a commerce student of Neerja Modi School, scored 99 in accountancy and 95 in mathematics.
A low scorer in maths, Sharma sought extra classes from his maths teacher before the boards.
“I used to score 60-65% in my pre-boards. But my maths teacher Ajay Julka ji pushed me to score high. He arranged extra classes for me at the end and motivated me to stay confident,” Sharma said.
Sharma wants to join University of Delhi to pursue under graduation in economics.
“I really want to study in SRCC, Hansraj or Hindu College, let’s see now,” Sharma said.
Another topper from Neerja Modi School, Aditi Moolchandani scored 95.8%. She scored 99 in business studies and a 98 in accounts and economics
“I would like to credit my school teachers for my performance. I want to become a CA,” Moolchandani said.
