Student of Loyola School, Jamshedpur, Ayush Banerjee on Saturday bagged the top position in the ISC Class 12 examination with 99.4%.

Ayush, son of Pradeep Kumar Banerjee, chief researcher in research and development department of Tata Steel, and Anuradha Banerjee, was from the science stream and had scored 97.6% in Class 10.

He has got 217th rank in the IIT mains examination and waiting for advance results.

Ayush said he wishes to complete engineering in the mechanical department from IIT Kharagpur.

“I believe that students should study only when they wish or feel to do so. Only reading lessons or memorising for gaining marks are not good enough. Students should study for gaining knowledge and keep focus on lessons. My mother’s moral inspiration and father’s tips helped me too,” Ayush said.

Meanwhile, girls have once again done better than boys in this year's class XII examination.

Girls have achieved a pass percent of 96.58 and boys have scored a pass percentage of 94.18. The total pass percentage stood at 95.27, an increase of 0.12% over last year.

In 2013, 96.66% of girls and 93.91% of boys had passed the examination.

This year, 68,723 candidates appeared for the class 12th exam.

The ISC examination was conducted in 48 written subjects of which 14 are Indian languages and 5 are foreign languages.
