Over 30 schools in the city secured a pass percentage of 100. The pass percentages in KV schools are also at a high end of 99% this year.
Students who scored well in the CBSE examination stated that the grading system helped them fare better.
"There was no pressure at all during the examinations. I was good at my subjects and especially Maths and hence I performed well," said Atul Shreyas Pannale, a student of Meridian School, Banjara Hills, who secured a CGPA of 10. His classmate and friend, P Praneel Chandra, who also secured the same CGPA, said that he might go into research field in the future.
"I am interested in scientific research and I would like to pursue that goal," said Chandra. However, most of the top performers of CBSE will not be sticking to the same board for higher studies. "I opted for the state's Intermediate Board as I will be preparing for competitive examination like IIT-JEE and Eamcet in the next two years," Pannale, a student said.
Teachers from the city said that performance of students have improved as compared to last year. "This year at least 15% of the total number of students who wrote the examination has secured CGPA of 10," Anjali Razdan, principal, P Obul Reddy School, said. In most schools, a majority of the students have secured a score ranking between eight and 10.
