While the CBSE Board has done away with the practice of announcing toppers to reduce the stress level among students,a few schools and parents in the city seemed to be in a rush to find out the highest scorer in schools or in the region. “If a student scores highest marks in his school or emerges topper in the region he/she deserves to be felicitated. I don’t see any point in not declaring the names of students who secure the highest percentages,” said Meenakshi Rajagopal,a parent of a class XII student from Andheri.

“We have stopped announcing toppers and we don’t even want to make a big deal about the passing percentage. That’s why we term this success rate as the ‘number of students qualified for admission to the next grade’,” said S Rao.
