A day ahead of ISC, CBSE Class 12 results were declared on Sunday, in which Noida girl Raksha Gopal emerged as all India Topper with 99.6 per cent marks followed by Bhoomi Sawant De from DAV Chandigarh, who secured the second position with 99.4 per cent and Aditya Jain from Bhawan Vidyalaya Chandigarh, who came third with 99.2 per cent. Though the names of all India toppers were surfaced soon after the results declared, West Bengal faced trouble in deciding the state topper, as marks of many students were displayed as ‘withheld’, reported The Indian Express. The report added that school authorities in the state, found the problem arose from technical glitches at CBSE’s Bhubaneswar regional office, which covers Odisha, West Bengal and Chhattisgarh. This led to schools unable to analyse school-wise results and identify toppers from the state.
