PSEB Punjab Board Class 10th Result 2022: Carpenter, farmers’ daughters bag top three positions

PSEB Punjab Board 10th Result 2022: All toppers cite self-study as their mantra for success.

The Punjab School Education Board (PSEB) on Tuesday announced the Class 10 results in which girls bagged the top three ranks. A total of 3,11,545 students appeared for the Class 10 examination of which 3,08,627 students have passed. The pass percentage this year is 97.94 per cent. Results of 317 students have been withheld by the Board and 2,475 students will have to re-appear for the exam.

This year’s topper is 15-year-old Nancy Rani from Satiye Wala village in Ferozepur. The first and second rank holders have secured the same marks, however, since Nancy was younger she has been given the top rank as per the tie-breaker formula.

Daughter of a carpenter, Nancy scored 644 marks out of 650 (99.08%). “Self study and following a time table helped me a lot. I want to be an engineer and now I will take admission in the government school, which is about 10 km from my village,” she said, adding that she never took any tutions.

Sahil, Nancy’s elder brother and a class 12 student, said, “I was sure that Nancy will do well. She has made our border village proud.” Sahil had scored 100% in Class 10 but since that was the pandemic-affected year, students were adjudged based on their past performances and no exam took place.

Ram Krishan, Nancy’s father who has a shop about 13 km from the Indo-Pakistan border, said, “I am a class 6 drop out and my wife studied till 10. We always wanted are children to study and do well in life.”
