‘Low score’ in English pushes CBSE all-India topper to 16 rank in college admission

Comparative lack of proficiency in English has proven costly for the CBSE all-India class XII examination topper. He has been ranked 16 by Shri Ram College of Commerce (SRCC) among students seeking admission to Economics (Honours) course.
The reason? Paras Sharma, CBSE all-India topper who scored 99 per cent, has been ranked 16 for admission in Economics (Honours) in SRCC college because according to the admission criteria of the college, Paras has got 98.75 per cent in top four subjects, one of which has to be a language, even though he scored 99 per cent in aggregate.

Paras, a student of Commerce had scored 100 per cent in Mathematics, Accountancy, Business Studies and Economics and 95 per cent in English.
Said Paras, ‘When I went to enroll myself in Economics (Honours), I had thought I will be at the top of the list of candidates. But according to the college guidelines, one of the top-four subjects has to be a language and the other three can be any other subjects. I am happy with my admission and the rank I hold, because, I understand that those who have received better ranks have scored more than me in the language subject.’

On the other hand Raksha Jain, who has been raked at the top by the college,  has a score of 99.63 per cent in top four subjects, followed by Deepak Rajpurohit, with 99.50 per cent in top  four subjects.
