Remember Sarthak Agarwal, the CBSE board topper that set the Internet on fire with his 99.6% score a few years back? While he became an overnight online sensation with hundreds of memes and jokes on social media, the Internet has finally found a replacement for the golden boy, with this year’s board results revealing that Raksha Gopal, a student of Amity International School, managed to achieve the same feat.

Gopal, much like Sarthak, scored 498 marks out of the total 500, thus aggregating 99.6%. Don’t believe her score? Have a look at her mark sheet:

Just after she was declared the topper, Twitterati had a field day cracking jokes. Sample some: “2 min silence for Raksha Gopal’s siblings, relatives’ kids, neighborhood kids! May God bless you all,” wrote @shvbajpai. “Raksha Gopal is the national topper of CBSE after scoring 99.6. In other news, DU has declared its cut off at 99.7%” wrote nawab_lucknow. @SirJadeja tweeted, “Arts Student Raksha Gopal From Amity International School, Tops Exam With 99.6%. Itne Me Hum Jaise 3-3 Paas Ho Jaate #CbseResults2017.

After a score like this, it was obviously almost impossible for the social media to not to notice and crack jokes. From Baahubali flavoured memes, to former POTUS Barack Obama observing two minutes of silence for all those who scored less, here are the funniest of memes and reactions that are being shared on social media:
