DEHRADUN: Students from Doon came out with flying colours in the Indian School Certificate (ISC) Class 12 and Indian Certificate of Secondary Education (ICSE) Class 10 examinations on Monday.
Though the overall toppers were not immediately known as the results were still being compiled at the time of filing this report, S Deepthi, a student of Convent of Jesus and Mary High School, emerged as one of the highest scorers with a whopping 99% (in the aggregate for best four subjects) in the ISC exam.
The science student scored 100 in computers, 99 in maths and physics and 98 in English. Her father is chief manager at the Oil and Natural Gas Corporation (ONGC) while mother is a homemaker. “I used to study for 5-6 hours every day. Besides that, I also focused a lot on revision and used to revise every topic several times,” Deepthi told Hindustan Times, sharing her success mantra. A music buff, she watched television during breaks and wants to pursue engineering now.
Students of Brightlands School emerged among the highest scorers, with Abhigyan Kashyap topping the ICSE exam with 98.6%. The teenager wants to be a computer engineer. On the other hand, Shubhnay Jain (commerce) and Suhani Singhal (science) aced the ISC test with 98.5% marks each. “I worked very hard to excel in my academics and want to pursue B Com Honors (graduation in commerce) now,” Shubhnay, the son of a Vikasnagar-based businessman, said.
Suhani dreams of setting up her own business. “My father (who is a businessman) is my inspiration and I want to be a businesswoman by pursuing economics honours. However, since I had science subjects, I have attempted engineering entrance exams as well. I’m currently waiting for all the results to decide on the best route to pursue my dreams,” she said
