City students bask in ICSE, ISC glory

Two students from the City secured the third rank in the country in the ISCE, 2015 examination while as many as three students (across all streams) were also in the top three list of ISC toppers. The result were declared by the Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations (CISCE) on Monday.

Anurag Aditya Sharma and Pallavi V Menon, both from Greenwood High International School, Sarjapur Road achieved this feat in the class 10 exam by scoring an astounding 494 marks out of the total of 500 marks (98.80 percent). There were five other students from other cities in the country who also got the same rank.

Speaking about his future plans, Anurag said he would switch to the International Baccalaureate for his higher secondary studies. “I am more interested in doing something in the field of finance and economics rather than medicine or engineering and will most probably pursue my higher studies in the US,” he said. Anurag secured the perfect score of 100 in three of the five subjects.

Pallavi is interested in taking up genetic engineering and bio-informatics in future. She attributed her teachers and parents for her success in the exams. “It feels great,” said Pallavi.

ISC toppers
Speaking with Deccan Herald, Gerry Arathoon, Chief Executive and Secretary, CISCE said the list of toppers for the ISC exam had been compiled taking into consideration the highest marks obtained irrespective of any stream. As a result, all the three toppers in the ISC list are from the commerce stream.

S Kavya from Vidya Niketan School, Hebbal secured the second position with a score of 398 marks out of 400 marks and a percentage of  99.50 percent. Three other students from other parts of the country too got the second rank. Aditya Shailesh Siroya from Bishop Cotton Boys’ School, Bengaluru and Ankita Kodavoor, also from Vidya Niketan School, Hebbal, secured the national third rank with a score of 397 marks and a percentage of 99.25 percent along with 11 other students in the country.

An avid lover of fiction novels, S Kavya wants to become a chartered accountant and will enrol in a BCom course either in Christ University or St Joseph’s College.

“During normal school days, I did not study much as there were a lot of projects. However I picked up pace during my study holidays,” she said.

 Kavya also loves teaching and has been volunteering at a local orphanage helping
other children learn. She scored a perfect 100 in commerce, mathematics, accounts and 98 in English.  Siroya aims to become an entrepreneur and he aims to study economics at the Wharton School at University of Pennsylvania.

“I had set a target of 98 per cent because I wanted to apply to Delhi University. So I was really excited to get 98.8 per cent,” said Ankita who aspires to pursue a degree in BCom from Shri Ram College of Commerce, New Delhi.

She scored a perfect 100 in mathematics and commerce, 99 in accountancy, 98 in
English and 97 in Economics.
