Prime Minister Narendra Modi on May 28 congratulated the students who successfully passed the CBSE Class 12 exams 2017. He also extended his best wishes for all their future endeavours. Ending the speculations, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) released the results of the students who appeared for the Class 12 board exams on May 28.

“Congratulations to all my young friends who have successfully passed the CBSE Class XII exams & best wishes for future endeavours,” PM Narendra Modi said on Twitter. Soon after the results were announced Noida girl and student of Amity International school, emerged as the CBSE topper 2017 by securing 99.6% in her class 12th board exams. Raksha has managed to score a perfect 100 in Economics, Political Science, and English core.

Bhumi Sawant De from DAV Chandigarh stood second with 99.4% and Aditya Jain from Bhawan Vidyalaya Chandigarh secured the third position with 99.2%. While Raksha has said that she wants to pursue political science from Delhi University from preferably SRCC or Lady Shri Ram College, Aditya is trying for St. Stephens College.

All India pass percentage is 82 percent as compared to 83 last year. Also, girls have managed to outshine girls by securing  a pass percentage of 87.50% while the pass percentage for boys is 78%. The CBSE results were declared after the Delhi High Court ordered the board to continue with the moderation policy as scrapping it would be “unfair” to the students.
