Class 12 term 1 exams will be held on November 16 by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE). The CBSE declared earlier this year that the board exams for Class 10 and Class 12 will be held twice, as opposed to the former practise of only having one final exam. It has also divided the curriculum in this way. MCQs will be used in the term 1 exams, and students will be given an OMR sheet to mark the correct answers.
While the schedule and syllabus for this year’s exam have changed, the board syllabus (which has been decreased) and the pressure of board exams remain the same as last year. Let’s have a look at the top CBSE Class 12 students from the last three years and how they prepared for the board exams.
CLASS 12 2021 TOPPER
Hiteshwar Sharma of Chandigarh was named the national CBSE Class 12 topper this year. Hiteshwar, an arts student at Bhavan Vidyalaya in Sector-15, Panchkula, achieved 100 in sociology, political science, economics, and physical education. “Continuous study with full concentration” and regular revisions are his success mantras. “One cannot become a topper in two months of study; one must toil for years to become a topper,” he said, according to the Times of India.
Hiteshwar was a national level under-17 cricket player who had placed second nationally in the CBSE Class 10 exams. During the ‘Pariksha Pe Charcha’ session in June 2021, he also interacted with Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
CBSE TOPPER CLASS 12 – 2020
Tushar Singh of Delhi Public School, Bulandshahr, received a perfect 500/500 in the arts stream in Class 12 in 2020. Tushar did not require any tuition help to top the CBSE exams at a period when even primary school kids were taking coaching programmes. Because physical tests were cancelled because to the Covid-19 outbreak, the findings were announced through internal assessment.
Tushar, unlike Hiteshwar, had a more laid-back attitude to his studies. “When I was studying, I didn’t have a set schedule. He told India Today, “I just studied roughly 7 hours a day.” Tushar had intended to pursue History Honours at Delhi University and eventually join the Indian Administrative Service (IAS).
CBSE TOPPER CLASS 12 – 2019
Karishma Arora and Hansika Shukla tied for first place in the year 2019, with each of them scoring 499 points. Karishma, from Muzaffarnagar, was also the first student from her city to receive a perfect score in the CBSE Class 12 exams. She claimed that “careful planning” over the year helped her get the score, and that she would devote time to Kathak, which she described as a stress reliever.
Hansika, on the other hand, organised her course material into chapters and subjects and even read newspapers to keep up with current events. To help her de-stress, the Ghaziabad girl watched various sports tournaments such as badminton.
