Chandigarh, May 14: Aieda Younis, 15, who belongs to Kashmir and is a student of The Gurukul, Zirakpur, topped Mohali district in the CBSE Class 10 exams, scoring 98.6%. She scored a perfect 100 in mathematics, science and information technology.

Her overall score was 493 out of 500 marks.

Aieda has opted for the medical stream and wants to become a doctor. Though her father is a banker posted in Jammu and Kashmir, her mother, who is a teacher, shifted base to Mohali district for better education.

Aieda’s mother Yousra Nayeel, who is a mathematics teacher at The Gurukul, said on Monday, “Due to the unrest in the Valley earlier, we shifted here for better education options. Aieda wants to become a doctor. Being consistent is her success mantra.”

Hargun Kaur, a Class 10 student of Doon International School, Mohali, is a joint topper with 98.6%. She studied for six to eight hours a day. “I was focused and worked hard,” she said.

Her mother is also a teacher in the same school and her twin sister also scored 93%.

The second topper is also from The Gurukul. Aarush Dhiman scored 98.4%. With him there is another joint topper Naman Narang from Gian Jyoti Global School.–(Hindustan Times)
