Aladdin Naam Toh Suna Hoga's former Yasmine aka Avneet Kaur is basking in glory as she has secured 74 per cent in her HSC board exams. The actress has been flooded with congratulatory messages and is extremely happy with news. In an exclusive chat with ETimes TV, the actress shared that she was recovering from dengue and was trying to balance studies and work.

It feels really good to get such a good percentage. Frankly, I did not expect to get this percentage. I am very happy and even my parents are really proud and happy. Everyone has been sending congratulatory messages," she said.
Avneet, who has been in the industry for 10 years now, also shared how she managed to strike a balance between studies and work, "I've been doing this for quite a while now. I have been doing it for 10 years now since I have spent such a long time in the industry. I have been studying, shooting and balancing both and thankfully my school and college have also been good. I have studied really hard. There have been times when I have given my exams and then rushed to shoot. For Aladdin I used to give my exams and then head for Naigaon to shoot the show. It is something that I have been doing for quite a while now and I am used to it now. I would definitely say that it never gets old," said she.
The actress also recalled the time when she suffered from dengue and while recovering she had to manage her studies, work and exams, "I had dengue and I was recovering from it. I remember the time when I had my exams I couldn't take completely off from shoots and just sit at home and revise, study for my exams. I had to balance everything altogether with my work, studies and I remember I had gone to Phuket also for one of my music video shoots. Then once we returned I had no time to prepare and directly go to give my exams. I was losing weight at that time as I had so much stress at that point of time. But everything went well so I am happy," concluded she.

Recently, due to the COVID 19 pandemic, the Central Board of Secondary Education made some changes to the syllabus of classes 9th to 12th in order to reduce the curriculum owing to the closure of schools amid the health crisis and to reduce burden on children. However, their move to drop chapters of nationalism, secularism, federalism & more from Class 11 political science course hasn’t gone down too well with all including Sonam Kapoor. The Bollywood star reacted strongly to the news and expressed her opinion on social media. 


Sonam is one of the most vocal stars in Bollywood who speaks her mind on various issues. Once again, reacting to the current news of CBSE dropping chapters of nationalism, citizenship, federalism, secularism from Class 11 political science subject has left her baffled. The actress called the move by the CBSE 'bizarre’ and questioned why the most important topics were being dropped from the syllabus. Further, she asked how will the young minds of the country make an opinion on politics if they don’t have such important topics on their syllabus.

Sonam wrote, “This is bizarre. Some of the most important topics are being left out. How are young minds supposed to form political opinions?” The actress joined several others in the country in raising her voice on the move by CBSE

Shahnawaz Hussain
NEW DELHI: The CBSE Class 10 results declared on Wednesday came as a surprise for many, with a falling number of high-scorers. Contrary to the Class 12 results, the number of students scoring 90% and above in Class 10 dropped to 1,84,358, a drop of over 40,000. The ones scoring 95% and above this year was 41,804, a drop of 15,452.

Even in terms of pass percentage, the increase was a marginal 0.36 percentage points. The pass percentage reached 91.46%. In 2019, the increase in pass percentage was 4.4 percentage points.

CBSE was able to conduct the exams for Class 10 main papers before the lockdown. It was only students of northeast Delhi who had missed the papers due to the riots and the four exams were to be conducted between July 1 to 15. For them, the marks were calculated on the basis of the average of the best three performances, and it was also one of the reasons why the board didn’t declare a merit list this year.

A total of 1,50,198 students have been placed in compartment, which comes to 8.02%, an increase from 7.88% last year.
Overall, girls have a better pass percentage at 93.31%, an increase from 92.45% in 2019. There has been no change in pass percentage for boys at 90.14%. The figure for transgender students has fallen sharply — 78.95% this year as against 94.74% in 2019.
