Autistic child among CBSE Class 10 toppers in UAE

An autistic child was among Indian school students in the UAE who were on 'cloud nine' after the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) declared Class 10 results on Monday.

The top scorer from the Indian High School in Dubai, Buvaneswari Jayasankar, scored 99.2 per cent marks, with 100 in French, Mathematics, and Social Science.

Aman Maqbool (17) of Delhi Private School, Sharjah, a high functioning autistic child, scored 94.3 per cent. He has scored over 90 per cent throughout his school career, and wrote the exam with the help of a scribe. His father Maqbool Ahmed, a Keralite who has been living in the UAE for 20 years, said: "After the exams, Aman told us he would score 80 per cent and above. We didn't expect him to score so much."


"He has a photographic memory, and has consistently scored high marks. He has never taken tuitions or special coaching. It's all his mother's effort," Ahmed said.
