The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) on Tuesday declared its results for the class X exams. While nobody from Mumbai made it to the list of national toppers, city schools did record very good results, with several students scoring 90 to 95 percent.
According to city schools, considering it was a full syllabus examination this year, students have performed very well. "In my school, more than 90 students have scored above 90 percent and all students have scored above 70 percent," said Anjali Bowen, principal, Ryan International School, Kandivli.
What do the students feel? Nivid Sablok, student of Rajhans school, who scored 98 percent, said, "Studying was rather difficult, but considering the huge syllabus, doing it regularly from the beginning of the academic year became imperative." Karrisa Khonglam, from Ryan International School, who scored 98.8 per cent, said, "The competition is increasing, so there was no way of taking a shortcut."
