The Council for the Indian School Certificate Examination (CISCE) declared results Friday. “The news has not even sunk in yet,” said an elated Adya. “I had the support of my parents and friends, but most importantly, my school and teachers who constantly motivated us and were there at every point. Parents, frankly never pressured me to score a certain percentage, but I kept pushing myself.”
Across the country, girls again outshone boys. Overall, ICSE and ISC saw pass percentage of 98.5 and 96.46, respectively. According to Gerry Arathoon, CEO of the council, the results show a marginal increase in pass percentages over the previous year’s results.

The third position was shared by 10 students with a score of 98.8 per cent.
