Sneha Agrawal, who studied commerce from Rukmini Devi Public School, told IANS: “I am very happy. I studied for just one hour everyday… I was expecting a good result, but never thought that I would top Delhi. My parents are very proud of me and that is what is most important for me.”
Divanshu Agrawal, the other topper, who is a science student from Delhi Public School similarly said that he was extremely pleased with his results.
“I worked hard and studied for six-seven hours everyday. I hope to become a lawyer someday,” Agrawal told IANS.
Shruti Lakhtakia, the third topper who studied humanities in Delhi Public School, R.K. Puram, said that the results have been beyond her expectations. “I want to study Economics Honours in St. Stephens college.”
Some students who didn’t score as well as their counterparts were nevertheless satisfied with their results.
Bhanav Hasija, a commerce student who secured 65 percent, said: “I didn’t score too well, but it’s alright. In the future I plan to take over my father’s business”.
Some others, however, said that they were planning to send their answer sheets for re-evaluation.
Sahil Verma, a science student from Bal Bhavan Public School, Mayur Vihar said: “I scored 74 percent and am not at all happy with my results. I am planning to send my papers for re-evaluation.”
