Mansi Manwani, St Joseph’s Sr Secondary Schools, Idgah Hills, 99.8%
“I am feeling very good. I am very happy with my marks. The decision to cancel the exams was correct because of corona. When it was announced, it came as a disappointment to me as I was well-prepared. Both my parents - Suresh Kumar Manwani and Asha Wadhwani - are college professors. Both tested Covid positive in March this year but thankfully they were home quarantined. I want to become a scientist and will opt for PCM stream. Writing is my hobby. Walking and chatting with friends are my stress busters.”
Toshika Kamble, Delhi Public School, Ratibad, 99.8%
“My marks are as per my expectations. When exams were cancelled, I felt my hard work would go waste but now I feel it was the right decision. I have cleared National Talent Search Examination (NTSE). My father Avinash Kamble and mother Megha Kamble are engineers and I also want to become one. I will appear in JEE. I like reading fiction. I rarely use social media.”
Tanishka Jain, Carmel Convent Sr. Secondary School, BHEL, 99.6%
“I am happy and satisfied with my results. I don’t think I have earned my score without hard work. I had appeared in two pre-board examinations, both held offline and also online tests. I had prepared for them. My father Rajneesh Jain is a businessman and my mother Tina Jain is a homemaker. I will opt for PCM stream. I have not yet decided what I want to become in my life. Dance and music are my hobbies. I like listening to soothing music.”
