While ICSE students needed 33 per cent to qualify, ISC students needed 35 per cent to clear the board exams.Though initially the council chose to implement it from next year, months later it made a decision to implement the changes this year onwards.Earlier, the pass percentages were 35 per cent and 40 per cent for ICSE and ISC students, respectively. But I couldn't believe I've topped in the country. For the second position there was a tie between two students Sakina Kausarali Jamali and Badrul Jamali Huzefa Ali who secured 92% marks. The all-India first rank has been secured by seven students, from Mumbai, Lucknow and Panihati, with 99.50% marks. While a parent said, "We have supported our children as the curriculum is tough and includes a serie of tests". A total of 154 schools presented 7,692 candidates for ICSE exam from the state while 62 schools presented 2,927candidates for the ISC exam from the state. Even here, the girls have performed better than boys. Maithili Vartak, also from The Bishop's School, Camp, scored 97.75 per cent, while Mohit Mukherjee scored 96.25 per cent. "I am really happy as my hard work paid off". 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).

She said that many think that high scorers are always from the science stream as they are assumed to be intelligent students and those who opt for commerce or humanities belong to lower-merit category.

Books were the ISCE all-India topper's Bible. "I want to pursue either economics or psychology as both are promising fields and deal directly with a human being's wellbeing", Prajapati adds. In the last two months, I used to study for nearly 10 hours daily. What does the future hold? "For now, my preferences are mechanical engineering and computer science", she said, signing off. "I was more anxious about this result than I have ever been", a relieved Abhijnan told mid-day, "There were many people who believed in me and I did not want to let them down". At the end of the day, it boils down to what you like to study and not what others would like you to study.

Studies were never Tansa's sole priority. Shah, who has appeared for the CET, wishes to pursue law from the National Law School of India University, Bangalore. Kanisha Shah SCHOOL: Anand Niketan School, Satellite PERCENTAGE: 97 VISIBLY EXCITED about the results, Shah credits her parents and school for her results besides her own efforts.
