LUCKNOW : Lucknow stu­dents dom­i­nated the ISC Class 12 merit list in a big way. Out of top 49 stu­dents who made it to top 3 po­si­tions, 18 of them are from Lucknow.

The ISC re­sults, along with that of ICSE Class 10, were de­clared on Mon­day.

The city’s third po­si­tion holders are: Isha Bhasin and Aanandi Ar­jun, both from La Mar­tiniere Girls’ Col­lege.

Gerry Arathoon, chief ex­ec­u­tive and sec­re­tary of the Coun­cil for the In­dian School Cer­tifi­cate Ex­am­i­na­tions (CISCE) on Mon­day said it was heart­en­ing to see that so many stu­dents from Lucknow made it to the merit list of ISC ex­ams.

“My hearti­est con­grat­u­la­tions to all merit holders for do­ing their city and school proud,” Arathoon said.

He said this year the board de­cided to re­duce the pass marks by two marks so as to get the pass­ing cri­te­rion at par with other boards. The pass marks for ICSE was 33% in­stead of the ear­lier 35% while for ISC ex­am­i­na­tion the pass marks was 35% in­stead of 40%, Arathoon said.

Jagdish Gandhi, CMS founder, said: “With its scin­til­lat­ing per­for­mance in the ICSE and ISC board ex­ams, Lucknow has cre­ated a distin­guished – in­deed pre­em­i­nent – place for it­self on the aca­demic map of In­dia, and demon­strated its schol­arly met­tle in the na­tional league ta­ble of schools.”

“I am thrilled that three All-In­dia Rank 1 holders from Lucknow (out of seven na­tion­ally) are all from CMS Lucknow – akin to a hat-trick! CMS will give away cash award of Rs 1 lakh to all the 3 na­tional top­pers of ISC,” he said.
