According to the sources, the percentage of students scoring above 90% in the city's ICSE schools has even gone down.
At Stephen's School Sector 45, out of 203 Class-10 students, 12 students have secured 95% above and a total of 51 students have secured between 90-95%.
Meanwhile in Tender Heart School, out of 66 Class-10 students, only 10 of them secured above 90%.
Out of 97 students of Strawberry Fields, 30 students have secured more than 90%, and in St Xavier's Senior Secondary School, 20 scored 90% and above out of 209..
The principal of St Stephen's School, Sector 45, Jacob Mary, said, "I believe 97% is more than good enough, our 63 students have secured above 90%, beating Raghu's all-India record."
St Stephen’s School official said, "The competition is getting tougher each year. It is a race going on every year to secure marks even if the concepts are not clear.”
