Tansa Shah

"Class 12 saw a pass percentage of 96.21 recording a slight dip from last year's 96.47 per cent, while 98.51 per cent students passed Class 10", said Gerry Arathoon, CEO of the Council. Aniket Tendulkar topped the school with 98.8 per cent, followed closely by Nandini Agarwal with 98.6 per cent and Sherlene Pradhan with 98 per cent. Anurag Tendulkar had the fourth position with 97.8 per cent while Vedanshi Shah ranked fifth with 97.4 per cent. Vidya Pratishthan's Magarpatta City Public School secured a 100 per cent result in Class X, with Rajani Utpat securing 99.2 per cent, placing her first in the school and second across the country. Motikar's score also happens to be the second-highest ever for ICSE in Nagpur, as she ended marginally behind her schoolmate Shreyashi Saha's (2017 batch) 98.2%.

Aakanksha Rai, a grade 12 pupil at Gems Modern Academy, claimed the second highest spot by scoring 99.25 per cent in her exams. All three are from The (TSRS), Moulsari, DLF 3, Gurugram.

Said Utpat, "I got to know my marks and also that the top rank in India was bagged by a boy with 99.4 per cent".

Shooting death of suspended school teacher ruled a homicide
Police have not named a suspect in her death and would not comment to the media about whether they had interviewed any suspects. When asked, DelTonto said that she was "just talking" to her former student, who was "upset and needed someone to talk to".

Gupta also thanked her teachers, saying, "There was never a day when I did not feel like going to college". "There was no pressure from anyone to do well in the exams. Teachers of the school were supportive, they helped me clear my concepts well". The school's efforts in the past year have ensured that the pupils feel calm while appearing for the exam. "I studied in Mumbai till Class VIII at Hiranandani Foundation School, so when we shifted to Delhi in Class IX, I joined TSRS-Moulsari", she added. "You will automatically start doing well just for the love of it, and the marks will then follow", she said. I was expecting her to get a good score. Agreeing with her, Sanjana added, "There is no alternative to hard work, especially in Class XII". Various students from across the city spoke to TOI about which subjects dragged their percentage down and English and maths seemed to be a common factor.

Though all the rankers said they had studied hard throughout the year, this did not mean they missed out elsewhere. Asked about her study regime, she says, "I used to study for six hours during the exam". To relax during the exams, Antra, who wants to pursue business studies, said she went for swimming and watched movies. "It left us with a lot of time for activities like sports and modelling", said Tanushree, who plans to study liberal arts overseas. Approximately 350 students appeared for the Std X exams, making ICSE board the one with least enrolment in Nagpur. "The pre-board school exams were the turning point, as they helped me focus on my preparation", said Kakkar, who has opted for science with math for high school.

Class X topper Swayam Das in Mumbai. "I was buried in my books for at least eight hours a day", said Manavi, the joint topper. The school average was 85.51 per cent in ISC and 89.76 per cent in ICSE.
