Students from Ghaziabad schools recorded a good performance in the Council for the Indian School Certificate Examination (CISCE) results declared for class 12 (ISC) and class 10 (ICSE) exams on Monday.
Some of the students who scored high marks were among the district toppers in Ghaziabad.
Yashika Singhal of St Joseph’s Academy at Nandgram secured 97% in the ISC exams. She scored 100 marks in commerce, 99 in economics, 94 each in maths and English and 95 in accountancy.
“I want a career in banking, which comes naturally with my choice of subjects. I didn’t take any coaching and depended solely on classroom study in school, she said.
“Now, I am aiming to get admission in Sri Ram College of Commerce, Delhi University, and will apply soon. Everyone at home is cheerful and the whole family is in a celebratory mood,” she added.
One of the ICSE toppers, Paul Joseph, is a student of Holy Angels’ Senior Secondary School at Rajinder Nagar, Sahibabad. He scored full marks in three subjects — computer science, history/civics/geography and mathematics. He also secured 94 in Hindi and 95 each in English and science. The aspiring software professional secured an aggregate of 98% in the class 10 examinations.
Speaking about his study schedule, he said, “I didn’t have fixed study hours through the year, but I made it a point to wake up early and get on with the studies a day before the exams. I read history and geography repeatedly to learn them by heart. I also used to practice answer writing, which helped me get maximum marks,” he said.
Paul is from Dilshad Garden in Delhi, but studies at the Ghaziabad school.
“I will continue with the same school as I got admitted here when I used to stay at Shalimar Garden (in Ghaziabad). We shifted to Delhi around five years ago, but I continued to study here. I have a lot of friends here and we will continue our studies together,” he said.
