Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal said the government school results were “historic”. “Congratulations to Delhi govt schools students, teachers and parents. Congrats Team Delhi Education... It’s historic,” he tweeted.

Sharing the data of Delhi government schools’ performance in CBSE Class 12 exams in the last four years, Delhi education minister Manish Sisodia tweeted, “Congratulations to all our class 12th students on your board exam results. I am extremely proud of you as you have survived extraordinary circumstances and adapted to the new form of learning.”

Principals of Delhi government schools said their results increased by a huge margin this year.

Awadhesh Kumar Jha, principal of Sarvodaya Co-ed Vidyalaya, Rohini Sector 8, said that the moderation policy worked in the favour of students. “Students benefitted from the moderation policy. The CBSE also seems to have given grace marks to students. Students and staff are happy with the result,” said Jha.

Gaurav Sharma, who topped the Science stream at RPVV Surajmal Vihar with 97.6%, said that the result was as per his expectations though he had to face many challenges during online classes. “During online classes, network connectivity was a major challenge. On many occasions, I missed classes since there was no data or network. After all those struggles, I am happy with my result,” said Sharma, whose father is a labourer and mother is a housewife. Sharma will be the first in his family to pursue graduation and dreams of pursuing a computer science in an IIT.

Sakshi Aggarwal, another student of RPVV Surajmal Vihar who secured 97%, credited her performance to the efforts by teachers during January-February when physical classes were held. “Online classes took place throughout the year but it was during the two-three month period that we gained a sense of confidence. Our teachers polished us very well during this period,” said Aggarwal.

An ecstatic Aggarwal said that though her father expected a score above 95%, she was pleasantly surprised to secure 97%. The 17-year-old plans to pursue History honors and has set her eyes on Delhi University. “Since my father is not a graduate, studying in a good college will be a big step forward for our family,” said Aggarwal, whose father is self-employed while her mother is a homemaker.
