IHS Student Tops CBSE Grade 12 UAE Arts Examination 

IHS Student Tops CBSE Grade 12 UAE Arts Examination Success is not just about topping the class, but about enhancement,” states Annalie Gracias, who surpassed the UAE in arts stream in the newly held Indian board exams for Grade 12.

Further, in her statement, she explains that merely aiming for top marks isn’t the key to success. “Success is all about finding what is best for each individual, and working on their strengths”.

Annalie topped the UAE in the Arts stream with an impressive 96.4%. She is a student of Indian High School, which got an outstanding grade from Dubai’s Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA). In her recent statement, she said that “Setting personal goals is important. Even if you are not a topper, your personal achievements must be celebrated.”

During her examination, Annalie clocked 8-10 hours of study time, but in the same time balanced her text books with timeout for friends and social media. “A lot of students deactivate their social media accounts, but I just reduced the time I spent on it. I didn’t cut it out completely.”

The top scores were expected, added Annalie without sounding pompous. “I was expecting to top, because I have consistently maintained the first rank. But, I never thought I’d be the UAE topper. That was the icing on the cake.”

Annalie was also awarded the Sheikh Hamdan Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Award for distinguished academic performance in 2013-14.

 “I had just woken up and my dad gave me the scores, and I was very happy.” However, it was not until she visited the school later in the day that she was informed about topping the UAE added Annalie.

“My parents have been very supportive and there has been no extra pressure from home.” Her father works as the executive assistant to senior vice president of DUBAI, and her mother works as the admin officer at DOHA.

Annalie is busy looking into university admissions and is preparing for her further studies. “I am still undecided on which university to go to. But, I know I want to BA in Mass Media.”
