The declaration of class X results by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) on Tuesday was a moment of celebration for hundreds of students across the city.
The system of cumulative grade point assessment (CGPA) introduced by the CBSE almost four years ago relieved students of the pressure to secure highest percentage as now students scoring more than 95% marks are given 10 CGPA. Those scoring less than 4 CGPA are considered fail.
However, this has also left students with no zeal and enthusiasm to study harder and secure top rank, feel some students and parents.
The results were declared on Tuesday evening with school campuses full of fun and frolic.
While from Kundan Vidya Mandir, Civil Lines, 54 students scored perfect 10 score, from Greenland Public School, Jalandhar bypass, 65 out of 264 students scored 10 CGPA.
As many as 43 students out of 364 scored perfect 10 score from BCM Arya Model Senior Secondary School. From Guru Nanak Public School, Sarabha Nagar, a total of 45 out of 355 students scored perfect 10.
