Congratulating the students, parents, and teachers, Atishi said, “This outstanding result of Delhi’s government schools is a testament to the hard work of our teachers and students. It is a moment of pride that our schools have performed exceptionally well nationwide. Not only that, our schools have surpassed private schools and delivered a better performance than them as well.”
The Education Minister added that for the first time in the history of the Directorate of Education, over 2 lakh students from Delhi government schools appeared for the 12th board exams, which is more than 72% higher compared to the previous year.

As per Atishi, the Delhi government is making continuous efforts to maintain this trust, and under the leadership of Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, it is ensuring quality education for every child studying in Delhi government school.
Motivating the students who could not clear the examination due to some reasons, she said, “Students who could not clear the board exam should now focus on improving their results and not stress about it. Parents and schools should ensure all possible support to such students and help them.”
