“This year students have done much better in mathematics and science,” added Deepak Patnakar, principal, Vishwajyot High School, Kharghar, Navi Mumbai.
Alice Vaz, principal, Ryan International School, Khar, said that compared to last year, ISC students from her school have performed better in physics.
The schools said that, in comparison to last year, more students have scored above 90% this year.
At PG Garodia School, Chembur, 76 out of 154 students secured more than 90% marks. Last year, 62 out of 157 students had scored in this category.
At Vishwajyot High School, the highest score increased from 97% last year to 98.4% this year.
Schools credit the students themselves for better scores this year.
“We can see a trend that in general, the students have fared much better... I don’t think that the papers were easier this year. The students are becoming more competitive and aware,” said Mitali Rudra, principal, PG Garodia School.
“Every year our score gets better. It is because of the dedication of the students that they have scored so well,” said Vaz.
