Hyderabad: The ICSE and ISC results were declared by the Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations (CICSE) on Friday. City students fared well though not a single student from Hyderabad made it to the All-India merit list. The pass percentage in most of the schools stood at 100 per cent.

This year, the results were declared two weeks earlier than previous years. The country’s south had the highest pass percentage with 99.68 per cent passing the ICSE exam and 99.14 per cent passing the ISC exam. Girls performed better than boys in both the exams.

Among the ICSE high-scorers from the city are Sindhuja Vaddeboina from Kalpa School with 98 per cent; P Eshwitha Sai from St Joseph’s School, Malakpet, with 97.6 per cent; Sruthi Prusty from Aurobindo International School with 97.2 per cent; G Aslesha Reddy from Nasr Girls School with 97.2 per cent; Apoorva Nangia from Gitanjali Senior School with 96.5 per cent; Koppuravuri Sai Naga Rishmitha from Johnson Grammar School with 96 per cent, and Sankalp Bhushan Chimdyalwar from Abhyasa International Residential School with 95.6 per cent. Students of Hyderabad Public School also did well, the highest score being 97.3 per cent in ICSE and 95.6 per cent in ISC.

“I studied for almost eight hours a day. I never stressed myself and also played badminton during my free time. My aim is to get into IIT for which I have already started preparation,” said Eshwitha Sai, who plans to take up maths, physics and chemistry in her Intermediate.

There are more than a dozen schools affiliated with the CICSE in the city. Most of them were on cloud nine on Friday as 80 per cent of students crossed the coveted 90 per cent mark.

In the ISC results, K Pravar from Aurobindo International School secured the top position in the state with 97.5 per cent. “I plan to pursue my career in medicine. I appeared for NEET and will also be taking up the state medical common entrance test. I was not expecting to be the state topper. However, I am happy to be one,” said Pravar, who wants to get into the All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi.

Chavaly Keerthana and Prabhnoor Kaur Bhatia from Nasr Girls School secured the second and third positions respectively with 96.75 per cent. Shikhar Shah from Gitanjali Senior School came fourth in the state with 96 per cent.

Students from AP also did fairly well in the exams.

Among the high scorers in Class 12 were Thammi Reddy Bhavya, MC Vennela and Manan Dhar from Rishi Valley School in Chittoor district.
