Girls Fare Better Than Boys In ICSE and ISC Board Result

Abhijnan Chakraborty

The southern region was followed by the western region with a pass percentage of 99.67 in ISCE and 97.22 in ISC.

Swayam Das, all-India class 10 topper. However, in Class 10, of the 16,530 students who appeared for the exams, 37 students could not clear it.

Shiksha - The Gurukul, Doomdooma, in Tinsukia district also recorded cent percent results. At Pawar Public School, too, all 139 all students passed. Schools with 100 per cent result include Anand Niketan ( Satellite and Shilaj), Zydus School, Vejalpur, Lalji Mehrotra Lions School, SGVP International, JG International, New Tulip International (ICSE), and Madhav International (ICSE).

In ISC Class 12 (Arts) Shivangi Tiwary of Loyola School scored 98.50 % to top Jharkhand. Five students from the city - Nidhi Dhanani and Vishruti Shah from Vibgyor High school, Saranth Correa from Bombay Scottish school, Sarthak Mittal from Lilavatibai Podar high school and Vedika Manek from St. Gregorious high school - are among the third rankers in the national merit list, with a score of 99 per cent. From a total of 143 students with learning disabilities, 13 have scored above 90 per cent. Read aslo CLAT students face "tough" GK questions, fear it will affect score Lamiya Shums, director of Anand Niketan Shilaj, expressed satisfaction at the school's result.

Swayam Das is from St Mary's ICSE School, Koparkhairane. Four other students also scored 99%, and share the third rank with six other students. This could be one reason why students who have taken science have not scored so well. He added, "All the efforts that my teachers made finally reaped the fruits and that only helped me in securing first rank in my school". The Class X pass percentage dropped from 98.53 per cent previous year to 98.51. She now hopes to study history at Delhi University. She plans to pursue CA course alongside BCom. "I wasn't sure if I would be able to get admission, but now I'm sure I can". "Half of my preparation was done only by paying attention in the class, and the rest is hard work", she said. "This strategy helped me secure the rank. The subjects were interesting and I enjoyed attending lectures regularly and would even read up more on the same topics through various reference books". She is also the council topper in two subjects.


On securing the second position across India, Gupta was still rather stunned.

For this classical music and dance enthusiast, a firm shunning of private coaching and focus on self-study was the path to success. In Class 12, the top score was 99.5 per cent, bagged by seven students from across the country. "I have worked really hard to get this score".

"We were in the same section and went to the same teacher for maths tuition. If I had practised a little more for Mathematics, I think I would have achieved a better score". In the ISC exams, it is 2.99% more than the overall 96.21%.

She said, "Though I compromised on television and time spent on my phone, classical music and dance are two things I loved and would not give up. And, they acted as a refresher for my mind".
