cent uae 1st rank

sachin nair the indian high school dubai (97.6 per cent uae 1st rank commerce stream)

“i hope to become a financial consultant and this is the first step. for me i didn’t take a lot of stress during the exam prep time. i kept myself active on social media but managed my time well. it’s important to keep a timetable and follow it. pressure wasn’t a big issue and i sometimes think the board exams are over-hyped. my parents have been supportive and they never pressurised me. sitting indoors for long hours and focusing on studies was most challenging.”

annalie gracias the indian high school dubai (96.4 per cent uae 1st rank arts stream)

“we get two months to prepare for the examinations. every day i used to spend 8 to 10 hours studying. i planned my study schedules and ensured sincere time management. for every two and half hours of studying i used to take a half hour break. social life becomes very limited and i used to rarely go out. with the good results i hope to pursue a career in media and communications.

“every student knows how pressurising grade 12 actually is. it’s all about keeping track of what’s taught in school and then coming home to revise properly. to learn something is painstaking and the portions are vast. at school teachers are strict in their correction of papers. the most difficult part was remembering all the formulae and equations. i believe cbse should reduce content and focus more on creating a better understanding of taught concepts.”

saadiya pangarkar abu dhabi indian school (97.4 per cent uae 2nd rank commerce stream)

“i am really surprised and it will take a lot of time for the feeling to sink in. the results kept getting postponed for some reason or the other. after getting the results everyone in my family has been calling to congratulate. i can’t deny there was a lot of pressure and expectations from all quarters but that pressure motivated me. the last two months were really exhaustive and i am now relieved that the whole process is over. i plan to do my acca. one advise to students — be regular and do not depend on tuitions. self-study is most important. it’s only when you grasp and understand concepts that you learn.”

pratiksha prashant singh our own english high school dubai (96.2 per cent uae 2nd rank arts stream)

“my class teacher called me up and she told me i was the school topper. i started crying and gave the phone to my dad. later i went to the school and met my teachers. i share everything with my teachers and their tremendous support has made my excellent results possible. i was always among the top 3 rank holders but never made it to the first in school. one advice to students - just don’t give up. there have been points where i questioned my own belief. anything can happen. i have joined bachelor of design at nift.”
