For the academic year 2017-18, the Council for Indian School Certificate Examination (CISCE) took strict measures while conducting examinations to prevent cases of copying and cheating.

Candidates willing for the rechecking of their answer papers can apply between May 14 (today) and May 21.

In the Class X (ICSE) and Class XII (ISC) exam results in the Council for Indian School Certificate Examinations (CISCE) stream, which were declared on Monday, girls have once again outshone boys in the state with a pass percentage of 99.98 against 99.94 percent by boys in ICSE and 99.67 percent against the boys' 99.22 percent in ISC.

In the ICSE examinations, Sameera S Prakash of St. Thomas Residential School, Thiruvananthapuram and Sreelakshmi S Menon of Hari Sri Vidya Nidhi School, Thrissur jointly occupied the first position in the State.

Kshipra Motikar ranked at city's top spot with 98%. "Next I am planning to prepare for JEE Mains, I will try my best to get admission in IIT colleges". In the last two months, I used to study for nearly 10 hours daily. "This strategy helped me secure the rank".

Seventh Day Adventist Higher Secondary School student Himanshu Salve also topped in his school with 91.6%.

Arathoon added that such a move was to "ensure a proportionate portion of the syllabus is duly covered in each of the two-year course, and that there is no over-burdening of the students at any one particular level". Talking to NT, Himanshu says, "I was not aware that I am the topper of my school. But at the end of the day, I am happy that my efforts and my parents' support paid off", she said. He is among 17 second rank holders at the national level. However, they do not figure in the first three all-India ranks.

Similarly, students of Marie Poussepin's Academy also excelled in the exam as Mahi Harishkumar Yadav is the school topper with 94.14%.

Poddar High School had more reason to be proud as two more of their wards - Priya Khajanchi and Rakshita Deshmukh share the 2nd rank with 15 other students, all of whom got 99.25%.
