Delhi University seems to be the top choice of Noida students who are readying to tread a new path after coming out with flying colours in the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) Class 12 exams, the results of which were announced on Sunday morning.

Sharing their future plans, many students said they wished to pursue graduation in arts or commerce streams from Delhi University colleges.

National topper and a student of Amity International School, Raksha Gopal, wished to pursue political science from a women’s college of DU. Her choice is among Miranda House, Lady SriRam College or Jesus and Mary College.

“I am now waiting for the cutoff list of DU to be announced so that I can take admission in this prestigious University of India,” she said.

Another student, Konishka Singh, the humanities topper of Delhi Public School, Noida, said she wanted to pursue Honours course in Geography or History from DU.

“I want to study in Hindu college as I have heard a lot about it. Everything will depend on the cutoff list,” said Singh.

However, Arts is not the only choice of course for students who topped the exams. Rhea Bhatia, the commerce topper of Delhi Public School, said she wanted to pursue finance from the university.

“I want to study Investment and Finance Analysis from Shaheed Sukhdev College of DU as it is a professional course,” said Bhatia.

Another student, Minnatullah, who scored 93.5% in commerce, wants to pursue business administration from DU.

“I will apply through extra-curricular quota in DU as I have heard the cutoff list goes really high. I want to pursue a degree in Business Administration,” said Minnatullah.

A few students expressed their desire to pursue other courses from other institutes.

“I want to pursue medical science from AIIMS, New Delhi and I have already appeared in its entrance test,” said Geeta Kumari, topper of Mahamaya Balika Inter College.

Thousands of Noida students took the class 12 exams from CBSE-affiliated senior secondary private school.

Overall, 18,000 schools across India are affiliated with the Board and a total of 10,98,891 students- 6,38,865 boys and 4,60,026 girls --appeared for the examinations.
