New Delhi, May 23 (UNI) It turned out to be a day of mixed fortunes for twelfth standard students, whose CBSE examination results were declared today.
Though the results were available on the internet, students, accompanied by anxious parents, flocked their schools since early today. There were scenes of celebrations and joy and extreme disappointment nearly at every school.
The overall pass percentage for class 12 this year again showed an upward trend at 80.91 per cent, though only marginal at 0.27 per cent from last year.
But the day clearly belonged to the girls whose overall passing score was eight per cent more than the boys at 85.44 per cent.
''I am very happy.... I had never expected that I will score this well though I worked hard but this is beyond my imagination,'' said an ecstatic Ajita P S who scored 96 per cent in the Science (PCB) stream and is aspiring to be a doctor, said.
''My family and my teachers were a great support. They helped me achieve this success,'' said this student of Greenways Modern School at Dilshad Garden, whose proud father distributed sweets among his office colleagues in celebration.
Attributing her 90 per cent marks to hard work and ''no tuition'', Shraddhanjali Prakash, from Lancer's Convent in Rohini, said she was happy about her score but could have done better.
''I am happy but not satisfied about my marks... I studied hard and I know it could have been better. A better score could have made my entry into the Delhi University easier,'' said Shraddhanjali who wants to pursue a Bachelors degree in Psychology from DU.
But in case of Aryan J, a Commerce student from Vishwa Bharti Dwarka, 77 per cent marks proved to be more than satisfactory.
''I had just studied for last two months... I did not expect to get such good marks. Thanks to all for this,'' said an overwhelmed Aryan.
Success stories apart, there were scenes of severe disappointments and tears with some students not making it to the pass list.
''I had worked hard but have failed my English exam by just one mark.... I can't believe it. I will definitely send my paper for revaluation. But till then, my future is bleak,'' said a shocked Vinay from DPS Dwarka.
