Supriya Kaushik, who got the third rank in Class 12 CBSE results announced on Friday, scored a perfect 100 in English — the only subject in which the topper, Meghna Srivastava, lost one mark.

Kaushik, a student of Cambridge School in Sector 27 of Noida, scored 497 out of 500 and shared the third rank with six others. A student of humanities, Kaushik scored 100 in English and History, 99 in Political Science and 98 in Geography.

“I am so happy that I have done my parents proud. I was hoping to get 95-96%,” said Kaushik.

She said her parents and teachers supported her all along and gave her the freedom to make her own choices.

“Even in Class 10, when I had scored 10 CGPA, my parents never forced me to pursue any particular stream and allowed me to study humanities. This is the reason I never took tuitions,” said Kaushik.

Her father Diwakar Kaushik works as a general manager in NTPC Dadri and her mother Seema Kaushik is a teacher at Lotus Valley International School in Noida.

“We are extremely proud of our daughter’s performance. This is a tremendous achievement and it is all due to her hard work,” said Diwakar.

Kaushik said she is an amateur singer and Kathak dancer. “I have practised singing for 5-6 years and I am currently taking lessons in Kathak. I am also learning French,” she said. She aims to get admission in Lady Sri Ram College of Commerce to study psychology.

When asked for a tip for her juniors, Kaushik said that one should avoid taking unnecessary pressure.
