Sana Niyaz has joined the league of her three sisters after topping the Delhi government-run schools in the CBSE Class 12 examination.

Her three sisters had also studied in the same school. While one among them was the top scorer of the school in her Class 12 exams, the other two also had performed excellently.

Sana, whose father is a cook at Matia Mahal's famed Al Jawahar restaurant and mother a home maker, says she had to maintain the "standard" set by her elder sisters.

And she did not disappoint.

“I never had to take any tuition because my sisters were there to clear all my doubts. I wanted to live up to the standards they had set in the family.”

Her family says they felt happy when Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia called them to congratulate them for Sana’s results.

The results for the Class 12 examination were announced by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) on Thursday, 2 May 2019. The pass percentage of Delhi government schools has gone up by 3.6 per cent to 94.24 per cent this time.

Sana wants to pursue Bachelor of Arts at St Stephen's college and also prepare for civil services.

Sana’s younger sister is studying in Class 9 in the same school and she also has to follow suit.
