23 May 2009 KHALEEJ TIMES
DUBAI — Girls have once again outshone boys in the India’s Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) Grade 12 examinations, bagging top positions in all three streams of Science, Humanities and Commerce.
The CBSE results for the Gulf region were announced on Friday.
According to the lists of their toppers received from 29 schools by Khaleej Times on Friday, Savithri Anju of St Joseph’s School, Abu Dhabi has emerged the topper in the Science stream with 96 per cent marks, Cutee Bhalla of Our Own English High School (OOEHS), Sharjah in the Commerce stream with 95.8 per cent and Rabiya Fahma of OOEHS, Dubai in Humanities with 91.4 per cent.
The region has also recorded an increase of the overall pass percentage of 0.63 over last year.
“I was expecting 90 per cent but this has truly been a pleasant surprise. My grades will help secure me a place at Warwick University in London for a course in management,” said Cutee Bhalla, Commerce topper.
Science topper Savithri Anju said good results are all about being prepared and not last-minute cramming. “These are hard-earned results. I studied regularly for this. Now I am preparing for an engineering entrance (exam),” she said in a telephonic conversation from India.
Principal of OOEHS, Sharjah, Dr Farooq Wasil said his student has always been an all rounder. “Cutee has not only been a bookworm but has also been exceptionally bright and a student leader. All this also boils down to good parenting,” he said.
