Harshit Dua (16) went to a temple on Tuesday night. Given that the ICSE results are being declared on Wednesday afternoon, his desire for divine help is no surprise.
“I’m really nervous, I’m doing different things to stay calm including playing basketball and praying,” said the Bhaktivedanta Swami Mission School student. On Wednesday, all his friends will gather at his place to look up their results on the website together.
For Class 10 (ICSE) students, who are awaiting the result of their first board exam, it’s nail-biting time.
“I’m really tense and won’t be able to sleep tonight. My friends and I have been constantly on the phone with each other and I don’t think anyone is going to sleep,” said Arhana Bose (16), a Jamnabai Narsee School student.
The Class 10 results will determine which junior college the students get admission into. Students appeared for exams in seven subjects and need to pass in five to clear the board exam.
Class 12 (ISC) students on the other hand, were much calmer. “I’m not worried at all and neither are most other people,” said Sangkrutiya T.P (17), a Class 12 student of Hiranandani Foundation School at Powai.
“The boards are just a formality and don’t count because most students have already appeared for various competitive exams.”
This year 6,031 students appeared for the ICSE exams in Mumbai and 143 for the ISC exams. There are 67 ICSE and 14 ISC schools in the city.
