"I was shaken by the re-examination announcement, but I managed to sco re 98 in the subject. I wish to go for BA in Economics,"

She added, "Yoga and playing guitar helped me to be stress -free during exams.."

Harneet Singh, a Commerce topper from RN Podar School in Santacruz, got 98%. "My extra-curricular activities like classical tabla helped me in building concentration and paying attention during lectures. That helped me score well. I have decided to go for BSc in Economic or Finance, for which I have given the entrance exams."

Of the Board's 10 regions in the country, Chennai has stood sixth. A major indicator of Mumbai region's performance is the 65 Kendriya Vidyalayas (KVs), which have secured an average pass percentage of 98.25 this year.

Aruna Bhalla, Deputy Commissioner, Kendriya Vidyalaya, Mumbai Region, said, "The result this year is the best in the last four years. In Mumbai region, 23 KV schools secured 100 per cent results in Mumbai region."

He is very good at Maths and is planning to opt for for Commerce or Engineering."

Arjun's schoolmate, Tvisha Sharma, from Humanities stream, secured 79% despite battling juvenile diabetes. "I am happy with my score.
