Yesterday was one of the most memorable days for all the class XII students of the CBSE board. If you ask me, it was a ‘Throwback Thursday’ for half the people of this country, because once the results were declared, all of us wanted to ‘throwback’ our own marksheets in some box and bury it in a place where no can find it. THANK GOD, we are not a part of this crazy competition anymore.
But, first let’s take this opportunity to congratulate Hansika Shukla and Karishma Arora, who became the joint toppers of the CBSE class 12 exams by scoring 499 marks out of 500.
17-year-old Hansika Shukla, a Humanities student scored 100 in Political Science, Psychology, History and Hindustani Vocals, and 99 in English. If the fact that she scored 499 out 500 wasn’t insane enough, her reasoning for losing one mark pretty much summed up the whole thing.
Blaming social media for distracting her, Hansika said, “If I would have concentrated more on studies, apart from whatever time I have wasted in doing online chat or playing games, I may not have missed a mark in English.” It’s still unbelievable that she just missed ONE mark. I was pretty happy with 70%, but today’s kids are unhappy despite scoring 98% or 99%.
Hansika, who wants to pursue Psychology from DU and aims to become an IAS or IFS officer, further said, “There is no time limit and pressure to get success. I go through the books and school notes to prepare for the examination. The NCERT books and study materials are enough and there is no need to confuse yourself by studying other materials available online.”
While we are proud of Hansika and all the class 12 students, Twitter is busy investigating about that missing one mark.
