ICSE, ISC exam results out

City student Abhishek Agarwal was declared second national topper in the class 12th ISC examination conducted by Council for the Indian School Certificate Examination (CISCE), New Delhi.

Gerry Arathoon, Chief Executive and Secretary of the CISCE, said 1,83,387 students appeared in the ICSE exam this year and the pass percentage was 98.51%, while 80,880 students appeared in the ISC examination, and the pass percentage was 96.21%. Seven pupils drew first place with 99.5 per cent in the ISC exam.

At the national level also girls have outdone boys in both ICSE and ISC exams with a pass percentage of 98.95 and 97.63 respectively against the boys' percentage of 98.15 (ICSE) and 94.96 (ISC).

Ritik Raj from Don Bosco Academy, who scored 98.6 per cent in the ICSE, said: "Every day I used to devote around three hours to study, and that increased to five to six hours one month before the exam".

The first rank in ICSE is secured by Swayam Das of St Mary's ICSE School, Koparkhairane, Navi Mumbai who scored 99.40 per cent.

"I think hard work is the only mantra of success". But I couldn't believe I've topped in the country. "He has been very meticulous and focused in his preparation".

It was an enduring love for social studies that helped Gupta achieve a near-perfect score of 99.25 per cent and secure the second position at the national-level in the examination. Even here, the girls have performed better than boys.

In ISC Science, Radhika Patwari of Narbheram Hansraj English School was crowned city topper with 98.75 per cent. The students are Abhijnan Chakraborty from Smt. "In class 12, while results of science and humanities are good, that of commerce has dipped a bit". ISC (COMMERCE)Keya Sanghvi SCHOOL: JG International School PERCENTAGE: 92.8 SANGHVI HAS topped her school, with highest score of 96 in maths. Gouri Prasad of Chinmaya Vidyalaya, Kunnumpuram, Thiruvananthapuram, has secured the second rank in ICSE at the state level with 98 percent marks while four students have finished in the third position with 97.8 percent marks.

Books were the ISCE all-India topper's Bible. "With this chapter closed, I am now looking forward to the next".

"They have one of the best computer science courses in Asia", she said. "I love history and want to later specialise in it, and so I chose the stream".

" I used to study for eight hours daily".

Studies were never Tansa's sole priority.

While most students need to compromise on extra-curricular and other activities during the board exam years, Utpat said that it was classical music and Bharatnatyam which kept her going and cleared her mind.

Priya was full of goosebumps after seeing her result. I am happy with my performance. Priya is all set to pursue her ambition of being a chartered accountant and is now preparing for the Common Proficiency Test (CPT).
