After ICSE (class 10) and ISC (class 12) results were professed on Saturday on the basis of pre-board marks and internal assessments, the Lucknow students who excelled said it was time to put an end to the powerful debate over the manner of evaluation and look forward to admissions in colleges or universities, even in Delhi or abroad. While marks were important, protection from Covid-19 was supreme, they said.
The CISCE (Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations) had cancelled the exams for both classes this year in view of the violent second wave of Covid-19.
Given the exceptional circumstances under which the results have been prepared, this year too, CISCE will not be publishing the merit lists for the ICSE and ISC Year 2021 examinations, said Gerry Arathoon, the chief policymaking and secretary of the council.
In Uttar Pradesh, the pass percentage in ICSE was 99.95%. It was 99.71% in ISC. Girls fared better in the state in both classes. They recorded a pass percentage of 99.96 in class 10 and 99.80 in class 12. The boys’ pass percentage in Uttar Pradesh was 99.95 in class 10 and 99.64 in class 12.
