I have participated in sports and state-level singing competitions, elated Sharma said. She added that it was possible for her to participate in extra-curricular activities,as the pressure of studies was lesser,due to the grading system adopted for class X. The system is excellent,as it helps students to sharpen their abilities and students also witness an overall growth in their outlook, she added.
Another student,Kriti Sharma,who also figured in the CGPA band of 10,said that she could get into it due to sheer hard-work. I put in a lot of effort during the examination,but stress could have been much higher in case the grading pattern was not adopted, she added.

Teachers at Bhavan Vidyalaya School,where 95 students figured in the CGPA 10 category,said that some of the students who got the higher grade average were good at sports,as well.
