Bhavesh Santani, Madhya Pradesh topper in CBSE’s Class 12 Boards, 2017, wants to become a doctor “to serve mankind.” A science with mathematics student, Lavanya Singh of Delhi Public School, Bhopal, scored 97.8% to rank second in the state, followed by Akshat Raj Lad with 97.6%.

In Humanities, Spriha Jaiswal of Delhi Public School (DPS) topped with 97.4% and Deepansh Madhwani of St Joseph Co-ed School emerged as commerce toppers with 96.2%.

Though he expected a good score, Santani said he didn’t expect to top the state. Surprisingly, however, he was not happy that the results were announced on Sunday as he was writing his AIIMS (all-India Institute of Medical Sciences) MBBS entrance exam today.

“I could not celebrate as I don’t want my attention to be diverted,” he said.

Lad, who is the son of a veterinary doctor, does not believe in studying for hours. “ Regular studies are enough to score well. Putting in long hours don’t help. I used to study for three to four hours daily without any pressure.”

Agreeing with Lad, commerce topper Deepansh Madhwani said, “I enjoyed studies and may be due to this I scored well. Regular studies with proper concentration is necessary to understand the subject well and I followed the same.”

Inspired by Narendra Modi’s campaign of Startup Indian and Standup India, Lad of DPS wants to develop his technical skills by pursuing engineering from a reputed institute and management skills from an IIM because he wants to start his own venture.

Second topper Lavanya wants to be an IAS officer and her goal is to improve the education system in the country. “I opted for maths just to do graduation. I will not do engineering. I will join Delhi University and want to prepare for the civil services exam,” she said.

CBSE’s decision to scrap and then continue with the moderation policy has led to a small dip in the scores. DPS principal Ajay Sharma said the results of a few students were affected due to change in moderation policy. “The change has left its impact on percentages of students but, overall, the result this year is fair one,” he said.
