Final ICSE batch to avail Best-5 subject

Indian Certificate for Secondary Education (ICSE) students will not have the option of choosing their Best-5 scores while applying for admissions to junior college from the next academic year. The students, who passed out on Saturday, 19th May, 2012 will be the last batch of students who will avail of the Best-5 policy introduced by the state government. With the Council of Indian Secondary Certificate Examination (CISCE) dropping one of the subjects in Group I (environment education) from the coming academic year, students will be left only with five subjects in Group I and II.

While Group III will have the sixth subject, it will not be considered for admissions to junior colleges in the state. "This is the last batch of students passing with environment education," said Gerry Arathoon, secretary of the council. Principals from ICSE schools believe that students could be at a disadvantage from the next year. "While English is compulsory in ICSE schools across the country for passing, it is not mandatory to include the language score in the Best-5 option," said a school principal.

"Since students score little less in English, so their overall score might drop by a few points making the competition tougher for them while applying for junior colleges in the state," he added. Paul Machado, principal of Campion School in Colaba, said, "Practically, students will not be able to make use of the Best-5 policy as they will have only five subjects in groups I and II. It is a scoring subject and looking at the performance of students in environment education in the last few years, students will definitely be at a disadvantage."
