S Aditya Krishna of Kuriakose Elias English Medium School, Kottayam, has finished second at the national level and first at the state level in the ISC Examination by securing 99.25 percent marks. Keen on working in the area of mental health, she wants to pursue psychology from Delhi University ISC (SCIENCE)Charmi Jodhpura SCHOOL: Anand Niketan School, Shilaj PERCENTAGE: 95.2 JODHPURA'S CONFIDENCE took a hit after poor score in prelims.

Her mother Poonam Kapoor, who had accompanied her to the school after the results were announced, described her as "hard-working and disciplined". Five students from the city - Nidhi Dhanani and Vishruti Shah from Vibgyor High school, Saranth Correa from Bombay Scottish school, Sarthak Mittal from Lilavatibai Podar high school and Vedika Manek from St. Gregorious high school - are among the third rankers in the national merit list, with a score of 99 per cent.

A student of The Bishop's School, Camp, Gupta scored a hefty 97 per cent in the Class X exams, and was adamant that she would take up Arts and study the subjects she enjoyed. "We have scored the same marks earlier too", said Tanushree, who credited her success to her teachers, who she said were "more like friends". While a parent said, "We have supported our children as the curriculum is tough and includes a serie of tests". If you wanted to talk about the topper then you all should know that Swayam Das from Mumbai was the ICSE all-India topper with a score 99.4%. She plans to pursue CA course alongside BCom. A believer in consistent work, she began preparations for the exam right from class 11. "This strategy helped me secure the rank".

"I really enjoy swimming and playing guitar so that's what I did when I was on a break", she said.

"It is heartening to note that our top academic achievers are also all-rounders, finding the right balance between their focus on academics and their extra-curricular pursuits". "I never expected the score and neither could my parents". And, with a hefty 99.2 per cent in Class X (the highest in Pune city), it clearly paid off.

This year, the top score of 99.5 per cent in Class XII was bagged by seven students from across the country - two from Mumbai, three from Lucknow, and one each from Kolkata and Lakhimpur Kheri in UP.

Ruling out coaching classes entirely, she emphasised that self-study and her classes in school buoyed her up for the exams.

While most students need to compromise on extra-curricular and other activities during the board exam years, Utpat said that it was classical music and Bharatnatyam which kept her going and cleared her mind. "I love history and want to later specialise in it, and so I chose the stream. I feel that self-studying is one of the best ways to achieve success", she said. "And, they acted as a refresher for my mind". "That made this score even sweeter", she beams.
