Class 12 students anxious a day before declaration of result

After a brief respite, anxiety is back on CBSE Class 12 students’ minds.

In Lucknow, students of GD Goenka Public School were hoping for the best even as the school principal and psychology teacher tried to lift their spirits up to keep the students in the right frame of mind.

“To apply for Delhi University colleges, I need a great percentage. So, I’m hoping a lot from the results as my college destination depends on it,” said Aishwayra Sharma, who wants to do B Com from the Delhi University.

“I have applied in other colleges too as an alternative,” she said.

“I’ve applied for colleges in UK which demand a certain percentage. So, getting a good percentage for me is very important,” said Aadhya Aron, another student.

This year, Class 12 Economics and Class 10 Mathematics papers got leaked, triggering criticism against the board over the way the exams were conducted. A re-test was held for Class 12 Economics students, but CBSE decided against one for Class 10 Mathematics paper.

The students who sat for JEE Advanced seemed comparatively indifferent about the results as their main focus continued to be the IITs.

“To some extent, it doesn’t bother. Of course there is some pressure about the result. Balancing the two was quite a task for me. A good percentage will give a boost,” said Prakhar Maurya, an IIT aspirant.

The students have been stressed for long and are trying to de-stress themselves. “Netfilx and chill mainly. My parents have been extremely supportive and caring which is a big relief to my mind,” said Aishwarya Sharma.

“I’ve taken to swimming these days to relax and energise myself. We also have counselling sessions in our school which are very helpful,” said Suramya Ahuja, another IIT aspirant.

“We finally have the time to go out with our friends and wander. I’m watching all the movies I put on pause for a year,” said Vatsalya Vaibhav.


In Allahabad, while some students of Class 12 who appeared for the examination experienced anxiety pangs, others tried their best to keep calm in the knowledge that the matter was now beyond their control.

“I became anxious after I came to know that the results would be declared on Saturday. So I went to the Bade Hanuman temple at Sangam and offered prayers for a good result,” said Rupam Shukla, a Class 12 student of Gangagurukulam School in Allahabad.

Shikha Singh, also from the same school, is currently spending her summer vacations with her grandparents. “I studied hard and did well in my examinations, but it’s getting difficult to sleep. Tomorrow morning, I will go to Nagvasuki temple and offer prayers,” she said.
