With a pass­ing per­cent­age of 93.47, Cen­tral Board Sec­ondary Ed­u­ca­tion ( CBSE) Std XII stu­dents from the state seemed to have bet­ter their last year’s per­for­mance where the pass per­cent­age was 91.04. This time again, girls have man­aged to out­shine the boys as 95.03% girls cleared the exam as com­pared to 92.19% boys.

Fol­low­ing are a few top scor­ers from the city in dif­fer­ent streams. Sci­ence stream: Neel Kapoor, a stu­dent of Apee­jay School in Nerul, se­cured 98.6% in CBSE board exam this year. Talk­ing about his achieve­ment, he said: “I was ex­pect­ing close to 95 per cent and this is an un­ex­pected score. It all be­came pos­si­ble due to my hard work and teach­ers, who helped me ev­ery time I had any query. Now, I am plan­ning to pur­sue elec­tri­cal or me­chan­i­cal en­gi­neer­ing and wish to get an ad­mis­sion in IIT- Bom­bay. I gave my IIT- JEE mains and now pre­par­ing for my IIT- JEE ad­vance.” He scored 100 marks each in Maths and Com­puter Sci­ence. Com­merce stream: Vishaka Ramesh, a stu­dent of RN Po­dar school in Santa Cruz, se­cured 97.8% in com­merce stream. “I scored the max­i­mum in ac­counts i. e. 100 marks. I could have scored bet­ter, but the math­e­mat­ics ex­am­i­na­tion was very tough and out of syl­labus ques­tions brought my score down. It was a bit tough while I was pre­par­ing for my boards as I was also pre­par­ing for Com­mon Law Ad­mis­sion Test ( CLAT). I wish to pur­sue a ca­reer in law.” Vishaka is ex­pect­ing her CLAT re­sults, which may come in this week. Hu­man­i­ties: With a score of 94.6%, RN Po­dar School stu­dent Prithvi Pud­hiarkar is among the top- scores in the city in Hu­man­i­ties with a high­est score of 98 in eco­nom­ics. “I was a sci- ence stu­dent in Std XI. Hence, deal­ing with the new sub­jects was a lit­tle dif­fi­cult.” Dif­fer­ently- abled cat­e­gory: Ni­l­abh Sarkar, study­ing at And­heri’s Ra­jhans Vidyalay, is his col­lege top­per un­der the dif­fer­ently- abled cat­e­gory ( spas­tic) with 87%. “I al­ways coun­tered prob­lems as I could not re­mem­ber things I stud­ied and also could not sit for long hours. I also had to at­tend phys­io­ther­apy ses­sions. But I over­came all the prob­lems and I am very happy with my re­sult. I am con­fused between en­gi­neer­ing and re­search.”
