She scored a perfect 100/100 in mathematics and sociology, 99 in political science and physical education and 93 in psychology. “I only took tuition for mathematics. I was never expecting to be in the all-India merit list but just a decent score,” she said.

She is now preparing for the UPSC and judicial exams, and is aiming for admission in Panjab University, Chandigarh or the Army Institute of Law, Mohali.

“Instead of studying all at once just ahead of exams, I was very regular with daily revisions and studied for 2-3 hours every day. I also took breaks when I was tired and used social media as a stress buster,” she said. “I had to discontinue my shooting practice during exams but I will be resuming it now. I practise shooting at a private range in Patiala,” said Dhillon, a resident of New Officers Colony, Patiala.

Joy Jasmine Kaur

She shares the top position in Punjab with Joy Jasmine Kaur from British Co-ed High School, Patiala, who also scored 99.50 per cent.

Kaur (18) is an avid orator and an active member of her school’s debate club. She scored a perfect hundred in mathematics and chemistry, 99 in English and physical education and 98 in physics.

Her father Jasbir Singh is a government employee and mother Narinderpal Kaur a homemaker. She now aims to pursue software or computer science engineering.


“I feel it’s all about consistency and regular studies. You grasp a little every day, not all at once. Practise and revision is what matters for maths and physics,” she said. “I used WhatsApp but stopped using Instagram during exams,” she said.

“My mother is also a postgraduate in mathematics but she left her teaching job to raise me and my sister,” said Kaur.

“Due to Covid, studies had got irregular and everything was in a chaos so I took some private guidance but overall my school teachers played major role in preparing us for exams. Self-studies matter the most,” she said.

Ripanjeet Singh Toor, also from British Co-ed High School, Patiala, scored 99.25% marks in science (non-medical) stream, securing second position in Punjab and joint third in all-India merit list.

As per CISCE, the second rank has been shared by 58 candidates while 78 candidates share the third rank. Eighteen candidates shared the top rank with a score of 99.75 per cent.
