Mumbai Metropolitan Region Sees Several Students Scoring Over 99% in Class 10 | Bombay News

MUMBAI: Several MMR schools reported that more than one student scored above 99% CBSE Class 10 results were announced on Friday. At DPS Nerul, more than half of the group (56%) of 240 students scored 95%+ and more than 80% scored 90%+. The corresponding numbers are slightly higher than last year’s 51% (95%+ score) and 77% (90%+ score). This, despite the council not holding an exam last year.
In the state, more than 26,000 students appeared for ICSE and nearly 91,000 for CBSE Class 10. Two students from Delhi Public School in Navi Mumbai, Mahika Gupta and Visharad Srivastava, scored perfect in Class 10 CBSE. “Devoting regular hours to studying and taking well-deserved breaks has helped me. I expected 99% but the one hundred percent result is a godsend,” said Mahika, who is trained in karate and kathak. She wants to pursue engineering studies at IIT.

His co-topper at Visharad School also got 500 points. “I expected 95%. The result is a combination of studying with my guitar and my music,” said Visharad who wants to study Computer Science at IIT Bombay.
At Bal Bharati Public School in Kharghar, three students are tied at 99.4%. Harshita Jaronde, one of their toppers, said splitting the program into two parts helped them score better. “But because it was split, the questions were very focused and detailed. The exams tested us on our skills and not just on what we had written,” she said.
The school, which achieved one hundred percent results, has 88 students in the 90%+ elite club, which comprises about 47% of their batch enrollment. Avnita Bir, Principal of Podar Schools, said she was happy to see a lot of 100. “The first term was pretty bad. So scoring 100 was particularly difficult,” she said. Some principals have said
that the term I format of multiple-choice questions helped their students perform better than in previous years. “This year, for the first time, we have two students who get 99%: Saumya Luthia and Dhairya Gandhi. The objective semester questions and reduced curriculum helped,” said Varsha Deshpande, Principal of Sheth Karamshi Kanji School in Mulund.
Pune region (which also includes Maharashtra) saw a marginal drop in CBSE class 10 results. Maharashtra (sixth out of 16 regions) performance fell from 98.2% (in 2020) to 97.4% but is better than the national pass rate. This year, results were based on student performance on two end-of-term exams.
