“I have done well but am anxious about the outcome of my hard work. Tonight, I will not be able to sleep and have my laptop switched on before the clock strikes 12.30pm on Saturday,” he said. Similarly, Ritika Upadhyay, a Class 10 student of the same institution started the day with a visit to Hanuman Temple in Civil Lines with her mother and will again be visiting the temple in the evening. “I have done well but am anxious to know the result. I will not be at ease till I see the marks I got in mathematics and science,” she said. In Lucknow, Class 10 student of Karamat Hussain Inter College, Nida Noor said, “As I got to know that the results will be declared on Saturday, my hands turned cold. My parents have vowed to feed a few poor people if I score above 85%.”
Class 12 student of SKD Academy, Amritesh Kumar said, “I am not tensed at all… I am expecting 93% marks.” SKD Academy (Lucknow) called their students to calm down their anxiety level. Director Manish Singh advised them not to be tense. As Intermediate students had already appeared for the board exam earlier (Class 10), they were comparatively more confident. High School students said family pressure and ‘great expectations’ from their families were making them nervous.
