An Abu Dhabi-based girl who suffered from flatback syndrome and a Sharjah-based visually-impaired girl were among the several students in the UAE who scored 90 per cent and above in the Central Board of Secondary Examination (CBSE) Grade 10 examination. The board announced the results of the exam on Tuesday.
Despite missing an entire month of school due to her condition, Sathya Subramoniam Iyer of St Joseph’s School is believed to have topped the board exam results among girls in Abu Dhabi with a score of 97.6 per cent. “I never expected this result,” an elated Sathya told Khaleej Times. “If we listen to our teachers in class, then tuitions are not needed to get good marks.”
Asma Abbas from Delhi Private School Sharjah, who suffers from glaucoma, aced the exam and scored 94.4 per cent. “I am thrilled with the results. I was expecting something over 90 per cent, but I am delighted today,” said Asma, who wrote the exam with the help of a scribe.
