After a lot of anticipation and apprehension the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) Class XII results for the year 2017 is finally out. The results were declared on May 28 around 10am, and soon students were tweeting about their results, annoying relatives and Sharmaji’s beta who always scores more than them. Soon the identity of Sharmaji ka beta was revealed, but as chance would have it, it is a beti this time. With a staggering 99.6 per cent, Noida girl Raksha Gopal is the 2017 CBSE topper. The student of Amity International School, Gopal’s astounding marks and her near-perfect score is both laudable and unbelievable.

While congratulatory messages poured in from all quarters, Twitterati and lesser mortals decided to have none of it. Her too-good-to-be-true mark sheet has cracked up the Internet, and the jokes are on full flow.

But first it is imperative to look at the mark sheet. Do you see it? Is it even real?

Certainly the Internet could not keep calm. She is the Sharmaji ka beti we all hear about.

An apt question, this.

This hits on point.

The cruelty that is life.

This is so true that we cannot help but agree.

She has a point.

Parents across the world will agree to this.

And maybe to this too.

Twitterati spare no one. Sample this.

And of course there was a Shashi Tharoor reference.

    Has anyone in CBSE or Education Dept. bothered to check/review whether her answer sheets were examined really by the examiner qualified enough to examine such paper, or whether instead due to last minute shortage of suitable qualified examiners for some reasons, somebody else not adequately qualified enough really examined her answer papers with obvious questionable markings. Data entry operators mistakes if any incldg.on grace marks entries/omissions also need to be thoroughly checked & reviewed for all the marksheets having 95 to 100 marks in difft.subjects. Grace marks added paperwise also ought to have been indicated in marksheets for public inf. and transparency reasons.but not done most unfortunately. So many winners & losers in many states.this time.
