Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal congratulated the students and the teachers for the results of CBSE compartment exams, noting that “India has never seen such spectacular results at government schools in the last 75 years. Many congratulations to all the students, parents and teachers.” 
Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia also said the students have performed “exceptionally” despite the impact of the pandemic in the last two years. “Due to Covid during the last 2 years, there was an adverse impact on students’ education as well as their mental and emotional well-being. However, despite this, students have performed extraordinarily well in the compartment examinations,” he said. 
Sisodia said the academic session 2021-22 was disrupted due to Covid-19 and there was a “significant reduction” in learning opportunities for students. “While our students performed brilliantly in this year’s exam, some could not pass in one or two subjects and had to reappear in compartment examinations. This result will surely boost their confidence and propel them to do better in their studies,” he said.
