All Class X students have passed the ICSE examinations in schools in Delhi-NCR, while 99.93% class XII students have passed. The CISCE board released its results for both grades on Saturday afternoon.
Forty-eight schools in the Delhi-NCR had presented candidates for the class X Indian Certificate of Secondary Education (ICSE) exam while 37 schools presented candidates for the class XII Indian School Certificate (ISC) exam.
Within schools, individual students have scored high as well. In Gurgaon’s Scottish High International School, the class X stopper scored 99.6% while the class XII topper, who is from the Science stream, scored 99.75%. The school has reported that 80% of class X students and 85% of class XII students have scored over 90%.
At The Shri Ram School Moulsari as well, students have scored high but principal Manisha Malhotra stated that this is in line with the increase that schools see every year. “We have compared the results to data from the last three years and it is quite in line with our past performances, and I don’t think we have many disgruntled students. Since the results for class XII take into account how they did in class X, XI and XII, it would have actually been more difficult and good scores shows that they must have done consistently well. In 2019, our ISC school average was 90.69%, in 2020 it increased to 91.2% and this year we’re at 93% — which means that our overall average has not inflated and increased by more than 2 percentage points,” she said.
In total, 5,463 candidates from Delhi-NCR — 53.35% boys and 26.75% girls — appeared for the class X exam, while 2,811 candidates — 50.44% boys and 49.56% girls — appeared for the class XII exam.
For class X exam, there were 59 written subjects of which 22 were Indian languages, 11 foreign languages and one classical language. For the class XII exam, there were 50 written subjects of which 13 were Indian languages, five foreign languages and two classical languages.
