CISCE ISC results 2017: When the Council for the Indian School Certificate Examination (CISCE) conducted the Class 12 Indian School Certificate (ISC) exam in March and April 2017, former Miss India Pankhuri Gidwani decided to run the race herself and aced it. Gidwani scored a whooping 97.25 per cent in the ISC boards.
“I had missed my board examinations for participating in Miss India (at 18) and after winning Miss India,” she said in a Facebook post proudly announcing her results to the world. After winning the Miss India contest last year, Gidwani had to train for Miss Grand International. She secured 25th position out of 80 countries. This left her no time to finish her schooling or pursue academics that year.
“After coming back from the pageant, I battled a number of hard situations, one of them getting adjusted to studying again after a year of glamour,” she said adding that she had to put in all her efforts to achieve this goal. Inspiring her fans and followers, she has advised them to pursue their dreams with “grit, determination and a true heart”.
