GUWAHATI: The results of ICSE and ISC, conducted by the Council for Indian School Certificate Examination (CISCE), were declared on Saturday and this time too girls have fared better than boys in the northeastern schools. However, there is no separate data for the northeast students as the CISCE does not have a separate zone for the region.
The students of Assam Valley School in Sonitpur district have done very well in both the ICSE and ISC examinations. Manjit Bora, a senior official of Assam Valley School said, “Though 101 candidates appeared for the Class X exams and 77 students appeared for Class XII exams, we have a 100 per cent pass percentage. Uttara Thapa Magar the all-India ISC topper in the Humanities stream. Her aggregate percentage is 98.75 per cent and she scored 100 out of 100 in History and Political Science.”
