The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) Class 10 results on Saturday brought smiles on the faces of Gurgaon students.
However, the publication of results in Panchkula region, of which Gurgaon is a part, was delayed by almost 8 hours causing expectant students and their parents to panic. The school authorities and teachers waited with bated breath since morning and were relieved when the results were finally announced at 4.45pm.
Most of the schools in the city achieved 100% pass percentage in the Central Board of Secondary Education in the class 10 boards. The students broke into celebrations after learning of their results.
Arti Chopra, principal, Amity International School, Sector 46, said, “Amazing and unbelievable results. Students have shown competence in core subjects such science and Mathematics. Percentage of students getting CGPA 10 (Cumulative Grade Point Average) is also impressive. As CBSE server had crashed in the morning, sending the students into panic. However, the problem was resolved later.”
However, teachers said since maximum students opted for internal evaluation instead of the board exam, the success rate cannot be compared with that of the Plus 2 board exam. CBSE gives an option to students in class 10 to either opt for papers set by the board or internal examinations.
Arsh Mittal, a resident of Sohna Road and student of Amity International School, Sector46, said, “I am very happy and I was expecting 10/10 CGPA as I worked very hard. I want to be an engineer.”
Aparna Erry, principal, DAV Public School, Sector 14, said, “A dream doesn’t become reality through magic, it takes sweat, determination, and hard work. Success isn’t about greatness, it’s about consistency and my students have worked hard which has no alternative. There are no short cuts to success.”
A total 279 students in the school appeared for the class 10 boards, of which 50 scored 10 CGPA.
“Hard work put in by the students finally paid off. We are proud of the students. As many as17 of my students scored perfect 10 CGPA and 31 scored 10 CGPA”, said Dhriti Malhotra, principal, Manav Rachna International School, Sector 46.
The internal papers of the exams were set by the school and approved by the CBSE. For evaluation, papers are checked by the schools internally and the marks are sent to the board, which sets the final CGPA, factoring in the performance of a student in extracurricular activities and the national average.
“The consistent efforts of the teachers and students paid off. The regular motivation and studies made sure the students performed well,” said Sunita Nagpal, principal, DPS Sushant Lok.
Among city schools, Amity International, Sector 46 had the highest number of students with a perfect 10 CGPA (148 students) followed by DPS sector 45 (109)DPS, Sushant Lok, (64 students) and Manav Rachna International School (17).
But the board’s internal evaluation debate could not keep the students from celebrating their perfect scores. Geetika Datta, mother of Sanya Datta, a student of DAV Public School,Sector 14, said, “My daughter did not take tuitionS. She simply followed what school teachers asked her to do and was regular at school. She never compromised with her sleep as it helped her focus on her studies better. We are extremely happy with her result. She studied for 5-6 hours every day.”
The boys scored better than girls this time.
While the students celebrated their perfect scores, even the teachers were thrilled to bits. The teachers heaped praise on them for the effort they put in through the year.
“I was optimistic about my students. I knew they had it in them to fare well. I believe that nothing is impossible if one perseveres anjd puts in sincere effort,” said Vaibhav Kapoor, principal, Ajanta Public School.
