Having scored 94.3% Aman Maqbool became one of the CBSE Class 10 toppers from UAE. Throughout his school career, he scored over 90% and wrote the exam with the help of a scribe.
Aman’s father Maqbool Ahmed, a Keralite who settled in the UAE for 20 years said that Aman had told them that he would be scoring 80% and above, but they are quite surprised as they didn’t expect him to score so much.
