Delhi Bus Driver’s Son Scores 97%, Among Toppers in CBSE 12th Science Stream!

One of the first few wishes to come in for Prince was from Delhi’s Deputy Chief Minister and Education Minister, Manish Sisodia.

Prince Kumar has scored 485 out of 500 in the class 12 CBSE board examination. With 100 in Maths, 99 in Economics, and 98 in Chemistry – Prince and his family are beyond jubilant. Wishes and messages have been pouring in from everywhere.

The son of a bus driver with Delhi Transport Corporation (DTC), Prince told India Today, “I am the son of a DTC bus driver. I never expected this… Now I have media people calling me.” He added, “The kids at these schools may come from a particular socio-economic background. But our teachers and facilities are almost as good as private schools. All teachers are well qualified, and they help us out.”

Prince, who has already cleared his JEE (Mains), wishes to pursue electronics and communications engineering in future.

One of the first few wishes to come in for Prince was from Delhi’s Deputy Chief Minister and Education Minister, Manish Sisodia.

The Minister tweeted, “Very proud moment, just congratulated Prince Kumar, topper of Delhi Govt. School, Science stream in Class 12, Son of a DTC bus driver has got 97% with 100/100 in Maths, 99/100 Eco, 98/100 in Chemistry.”

While we are busy celebrating the achievements, we must not forget those who might not have done so well.

It would be useful to remember that life is much more than these numbers. In this article we published, Tanvi Patel writes about how it is important to stay away from set definitions and labels that are given to us. She urges all of us to set our boundaries and define what success means to us.

Tanvi writes, “There’s more to life than the numbers written in red pens, and you’ll soon see that.”

Reiterating this point becomes doubly crucial during this time when marks and results are the conversation topics around us.

While we celebrate the successes, let’s also learn from our failures. Here’s wishing all the students the very best for their endeavours.
