New Delhi: The Delhi government’s efforts to alleviate the standard of education seem to have worked for the capital in view of the recent Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) Class X results.
Delhi government’s premier Schools of Excellence (SOEs), founded in 2018, and Rajkiya Pratibha Vikas Vidyalayas (RPVVs) have fared well in the board exams.
SOE Rohini student Hariom Singh scored 100 per cent in mathematics and 95 per cent overall. “I didn’t always like mathematics but my teachers helped me a lot. I would credit them a lot for my result. Now, I want to study science with maths,” Hariom said.
Another student Anjali Ojha of SOE Dwarka Sector 23, also did well scoring 94 per cent. Anjali would be taking up science for further study. Both Hariom and Anjali had joined their respective SOE schools in class IX, coming from private schools.
“My family decided on this school because the facilities were really good and, unlike at a private school, we would not have to give donations here,” Anjali said.
A student of RPVV Dwarka Sector 10, Praveen Rawat also scored 97 per cent. “I got 100 per cent in both maths and science. The teachers regularly helped us through the preparation, and gave e-learning material to use at home. I’m going to opt for science without biology in XI,” a confident Praveen said.
