Ecstatic over the fantastic results in the ICSE and ISC examinations, authorities at schools that are part of The Hindu in School (THiS) programme attributed the success to 3Ds – dedication, determination and discipline – of teachers as well as students.

Toppers attributed their success to the support they got from their parents, teachers and friends. “I must acknowledge the support I received from friends who always egged on me to excel. My teachers taught me so well that I did not find it necessary to go to private tuitions. In future, I wish to pursue a career in administration,” said Namitha Padmanabhan, topper at Baldwin Girls’ High School, Richmond Road. She secured 96.3 per cent marks in Class 10 ICSE examination with a centum in computer applications.

All the 274 students in the school have cleared the Class 10 ICSE examination. In all, 10 students have scored a centum in mathematics.

Sneha S. stood second with 96.2 per cent marks, while Simran Vohra stood third 96 per cent.

At SSB International School, Indiranagar, all the 24 students who appeared for Class 10 ICSE examination have passed. Ranjitha F. and Akhil K. topped the school by securing 89 per cent marks and Hitesh G. has taken the second position with 84 per cent.

Bangalore International Public School, Chikkalasandra, too has achieved 100 per cent pass results. Rajath Sharma (92.66 per cent) is the school topper followed by Gagan S. (90.5 per cent) and Sai Bhargav P. (88.33 per cent). In all, seven students secured distinction.

“It is sheer hard work. I did not expect to top the school. It came as a surprise. Initially, I used to study for two hours and from January, I ramped it up to four hours. I must acknowledge the support I got from teachers, parents and friends,” said Preethi R.T., the topper at Presidency School, Nandini Layout. She secured 96 per cent marks.

Tejaswini K. (95.67 per cent) has come second, while Denzil A. Joy and Sanjana Dixit with 95.17 per cent have taken the third position.
