CBSE 12th result 2017: 19-year old Tushar Rishi who hails from Ranchi was struck by cancer, but that did not stop him from doing very well in his exams, reports Hindustan Times. Rishi who appeared for the much talked about class 12th examinations, the results of which were announced on Sunday, hit the 90 pct mark. And what is more, he did this despite the fact that he had to travel to Delhi’s All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) every 3 months for regular check ups. Tushar crossed the 90% mark in most of his subjects including English, Physics, Mathematics. Significantly, he scored a perfect 100 in Fine Arts. Talking to Hindustan Times, Tushar said that his condition is now much better after all the treatment but he was required to frequently visit AIIMS for check ups.
What adds to the success story of Tushar Rishi is that unlike most students, he did not take tuitions. His mother Ritu Agarwal talking about her son’s battle with cancer said that she has seen him struggle and she hopes he remains healthy and achieves all his career goals.
Rishi studies in Delhi Public School (DPS) and was detected with bone cancer in 2014. Unable to appear for his class 10th board examination, the diagnosis changed him a great deal but he tried to stay focused on academics, Tushar revealed while talking to HT. After 11 months of chemotherapy, Rishi appeared for his class 10th examination in 2015 and scored well. He got a 10 CGPA. Even after achieving the 90% mark in science subjects, Tushar wants to graduate in either economics or in English from Delhi University.
