Dubai: The Grade 12 Central Board of Secondary Education exam results were released on Friday.

3,480 students sat for the exams in the UAE, out of over 7,000 students in the entire Arab Gulf region.

Savithri Anju, a student at St Joseph's School in Abu Dhabi was speechless after topping the Science stream CBSE grade 12 examinations.

"I have no words to explain how I feel. I knew I had done well but did not expect to outperform all others," said the 18-year old who scored 96 per cent.

She attributed her success to systematic planning and regular studies and said she could not have done it without the support of her teachers and parents. Savithri is planning to pursue a career in engineering.

Cutie Bhalla secured the highest percentage in the Commerce stream with 95.8 per cent. She was a student at Our Own Indian School, Sharjah.

Rabia Fahmi, from Our Own English School in Dubai, topped the Humanities stream, with 91.4 per cent.

As the Class XII results of the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) exams started pouring in from various schools, it was clear that it would be close finish.

The student with the highest percentage beat the second runner-up by just two per cent.

In the Gulf, 7,519 students sat for their finals and 7,012 passed the finals, according to the Central Board.

Principals of Indian schools in the UAE were equally ecstatic as the students over the high school exam results. The final tally showed the overall pass percentage in the Gulf region was more than 93 per cent.

"A wide spectrum of students have achieved high results," said Ashok Kumar, chief executive of Indian High School in Dubai.

"We are pleased with the results," he said, noting that they were better than the year before.

He noted, with pride, that 25 science students from his school got more than 90 per cent, while 26 in the commerce stream received more than 90 per cent.

"It was far beyond our expectations," said Kumar.

  2. Nice post. Parents are parents, not Gods. Of course they cannot have all the answers. The way you explain things to your kids should do all the work…it all comes under parenthood and your people skills.
