Between her classical music classes and watching movies, Archana Sasi of National Public School, Indiranagar, got a stunning 97.8% marks in the Class 12 CBSE examinations, results of which were declared on Monday, 28th May. The school had toppers in both Science and Commerce streams, with Kajal Varma securing a total of 488 marks (97.6%). In the Arts stream, Aman Saxena of Army Public School topped with 82.4%. There are high scorers from Sri Kumaran Childrens Home and Delhi Public School too, which saw centum results. A movie buff, Archana is set to celebrate with her friends.
An aspiring doctor, she scored 489 out of 500 in the Science stream. I am ecstatic. I was expecting a good result, but this score is above my expectations. It has come as a pleasant surprise, says Archana, who feels that hard work is the essence of success and cannot be replaced. Apart from music, Archana loves reading books and hanging out with friends. It has never been only studies for me. I studied for 4-5 hours a day on a regular basis.
I feel it is the clarity on concepts that can get you a centum, rather than sitting with books for hours together, says Archana, who was very closely followed by her friend Kajal Varma, with a total score of 488 (97.6%). Kajal wishes to be an engineer. We knew we do well and are happy with each other's success, although we never shared study hours due to diverse streams, says an elated Kajal, who is awaiting AIEEE results. I also appeared for IIT and qualified. I scored 336 in BITSAT and am expecting a good rank, says Kajal. While the duo made the school proud, Sharda (97.4%) from Sri Kumaran Children's Home, Kshitij Singh (97.2%) from DPS South and Aniket Baksy (97.2%) from DPS South joined the league of high scorers from the Science stream.
The number crunchers
With 97.6%, Sruthi Balakrishnan, from NPS Indiranagar is one of the city toppers from the Commerce stream, and for her too, the high score was a lovely surprise. I never expected any particular result. It was an easy schedule earlier but I tightened up during exam time. I studied hard when exams were going on, says Sruthi. A law aspirant, Sruthi has already selected her college for further studies. Although I appeared for CLAT this year, I could not crack it. I will pursue a degree from Christ University, says Sruthi.
A number lover from Sri Kumaran Childrens Home with 96.6% in Commerce, Rakshitha NA scored a total of 483 out of 500. She says she loves numbers and hence, accountancy. It is my favourite subject. I am planning for B.Com and will do CA simultaneously, said Rakshita. Vivek Madani with 96.4% from NPS Indiranagar, Archana KR with 96.2% from DPS South and Charulata Choudhary with 96.2% from DPS South were others on the list of high scorers from the Commerce stream.
