Mumbai: It is a moment of pride as girls scored better than boys in ICSE (Indian Certificate of Secondary Education) and ISC (Indian School Certificate) board examination results of Class 10 and 12 which were declared on Monday. I am happy with my performance.

In ICSE board exam 2018, Swayam Das of St Mary's ICSE School, Navi Mumbai, took the first position with 99.40% marks.

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%. 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).

Ms Sheela Menon, principal of Ambassador School in Dubai said, "Young Ambassadors have emerged as winners in Indian curriculum ICSE and ISC examinations, with each batch outperforming the previous one. So I guess I will be celebrating my results, whatever it is in the hills", said Sneha Shetty, a class X, ICSE student. 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".

"It is heartening to note that our top academic achievers are also all-rounders, finding the right balance between their focus on academics and their extra-curricular pursuits". "I would analyse what I wanted to study on a particular day and study accordingly".

Ruling out coaching classes entirely, she emphasised that self-study and her classes in school buoyed her up for the exams. She now hopes to study history at Delhi University. She plans to pursue CA course alongside BCom. "Half of my preparation was done only by paying attention in the class, and the rest is hard work", she said. She scored 100 marks in computer application and 99 marks in Hindi. "My school was completely supportive as they held extra classes and our teachers were always available to us even one day before the examination". "I used to study nearly the entire day and had two hours as spare time", she says. She said she only kept weekly goals for herself until exams were finally around the corner. "I want to pursue either economics or psychology as both are promising fields and deal directly with a human being's wellbeing", Prajapati adds. "I was determined to do well and stuck to my resolve".
