Following an announcement by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE), Xth graders across the UAE’s Indian schools received the much-awaited board exam results on Tuesday, moving away from the rigour of actual marks to grades.

“Every year, we look forward to the results as excitedly and anxiously as the students,” said Dr Ashok Kumar, CEO of Indian High School, Dubai. “Our students’ performance always makes us happy. Heartiest congratulations to the enthusiastic learners, parents and teachers.”

Alina Nawab Kidwai, a student of Our Own Indian School, said the pressure faced by students taking the exam was akin to being inside a pressure cooker.

“There isn’t a lot of pressure while studying for the exam but once you are inside the examination hall, you have to stick to the deadline. The experience disciplines you. I feel the grading system is much better as it reduces competition,” she said.

Several schools reported good results with hundreds of students scoring the maximum 10-point cumulative grade point average (CGPA). At the Indian High School, 61 students scored A1 in all five subjects. At Our Own Indian School, 22 students scored a 10-point CGPA. At the Sharjah Indian School, 403 students took the exam and 11 scored GCPA 10. The Emirates National School also produced good results with 16 students achieving the maximum score. Seventeen students from the Delhi Private School, Dubai also scored a perfect 10 each.

This year round, 1.32 million students appeared for the CBSE Class X Board Exam. Of them 7,93,940 were boys and the rest girls. Exams were conducted in 3,253 centres across the world.

Students who feel they need to improve their grades can reappear for the improvement examinations in July. Results can be viewed at http://www.results.nic.in, http://www.cbseresults.nic.in and http://www.cbse.nic.in, CBSE officials said.
