The ICSE results which saw more students with 90% and above scores has given worry lines to class X students from other boards as they try to secure seats in one of the top 10 city colleges. I know I have worked really hard for my papers and also did well in all my papers. But I’m still worried if my score will be good enough to match the kind of marks ICSE students have scored, said Rohit Paranjpe, an SSC student. He also added that most of his friends are worried about not making through the course or college of their choice. ICSE students, however, have other things to worry about.
Some were disappointed because they missed the privilege of being the all-India topper by just one mark. I am very happy with my score and I know it is enough to get methrough the best college any where. I missed the all-India topper tag by just one mark, but there is nothing I can change now, said Tanvee Deokule, a student of Pawar Public School, Bhand up. Parents were equally worried about the competition students will face during junior college admissions. My daughter scored 98% (best-5 ) but I realised the topper had scored 98.80%. Theres going to be cutthroat competition during admissions this year, said Arun Mehta, father of 16-year-old Ayushi Mehta, the topper at Maneckji Cooper Education Trust School. Most schools had reason to celebrate this year not just with 100% results but also with the increasing number of 90% scorers in their batch. Our results have been fantastic and the number of 90% and above scorers has also increased, said Alice Vaz, principal of Ryan International School, Kharghar, adding that 24 students in her batch scored above 90%. At St Marys ICSE School, 49 out of 105 scored above 90% and the topper, Arunabh Mishra, scored 97.2%. We are worried that well see more rejected students this year during admissions, especially high scorers. Hopefully, the admission process will be less stressful than the previous years, said the principal of a South Mumbai college.
