Scoring 96.6 per cent in chemistry, Charu claimed the Number 1 spot among 3,573 UAE Grade XII students in the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) scientific exams, following a reappraisal of her exam paper.

On receiving her initial grades in May, Jangid had applied for a re-evaluation.

“I was confident that my Chemistry paper had gone really well as I had discussed it with my teacher, so when I saw my grade, I felt that I need to have it re-evaluated,” she said.

“Apparently there was a mistake with the totaling of my marks which was then corrected.”

The TMS student was awarded six additional marks by the CBSE board – with those extra points taking her past the previous victor and making her the new UAE science stream topper.

Michael Guzder, The Millennium School Principal, said it was an extremely proud moment for the school.

“Charu is an exceptional student with a bright future ahead of her. Becoming the UAE science topper is a phenomenal achievement, and we are delighted for her and her family.”

Charu will begin her studies in Applied Sciences and Engineering with an emphasis on computer science at the University of Pennsylvania, an Ivy League school in the United States, this October.
