ICSE Result 2017


Hi there, everyone, and a wonderful good morning to you! The result is said to be declared today. Some news sites claim that it will be declared at 10:30 this morning. (SEE UPDATES BELOW) That leaves us with just a matter of minutes before computers start being hogged and servers begin to take the toll of thousands of eager, anxious, excited students waiting to know what the screens have to foretell.

But, one thing is for sure.

No matter how you think you did on your exams a month or so back, stay happy in the knowledge that what you deserve and what is yours shall not pass you by, whether it is today or five years down the line. Remember, a “no” to one thing means a “yes” for another. Doors will pop up if you only dare to knock.

Therefore, this result may determine your near future, but it does not have the strength to determine what you make out of your life. Whether it’s a low score or a high one, neither will doom or make your future.

But, till the results do come… It doesn’t hurt to…

Hope you all stay calm, stay happy, and keep smiling! And, most importantly…

Go get yourself a bowl of ice cream or your favorite treat before you sit in front of the computer screen with your family, for life is meant to be enjoyed and celebrated every single moment, not just on special occasions. 🙂

We wish each and every student who gave the ICSE Tenth Board Exams this year a hearty best of luck! 

Take care, and do keep visiting us! We’d love to keep hearing from you. 🙂


UPDATE 1: Some sources also claim that the result may be declared on May 18th. We shall keep you updated regarding the official date and time.

UPDATE 2: The Council usually declares the official date/time of the result one week in advance. It is expected that they shall follow the same procedure this year, as well. We shall keep you updated regarding the official date/time.

Your Story for March 2017


We received Sarah’s story in the month of March and are thankful to her for sharing her experience with us. Here is her story for you to read as a part of our Your Story series. Hope to receive many more such recounts from our readers of your experience as a tenth grade student of ICSE!

 

Here’s what Sarah from St. Thomas, Trivandram has to say…

Hi everyone,

ICSE is tough!!! Very hard to get marks!! Those verses were actually my stepping stones to “the girl with 95%.” I am very proud to say that… As you know, my neighbours and relatives were more anxious about my marks (typical indian aunties) and finally got the chance to surprise them, and made my parents proud. A special thanks to this bog for helping me clear those examinations bravely with perfect preparations!! A blog where you enjoy all tough subjects… Yes!! 24 chapters in History & Civics textbook was a shock for all of us, but thankfully, we managed to face it!! 

Dear parents,
Please do not move back saying “ICSE is tough.” Yes, it the toughest of all, but remember, only if you work hard, you will achieve heights of happiness. You want them to, right??!! Then, without a speck of doubt, enroll them to the nearest ICSE school, and before doing that, be sure this blog is working. 😉

Sarah, thank you for this inspirational story, and congratulations on your 95%!

We are also humbled and truly delighted that this blog helped you enjoy your journey through 10th grade. Your words and positivity made our day!

Although we cannot always live up to our readers’ expectations, we hope to continue influencing and helping our readers and fellow students in the best way possible. It is readers such as Sarah who motivate us to make sure that yes, this blog keeps working. 😀

We wish her all the very best for her future! 🙂

Your Story for January 2017


We are delighted to have received our first story from an ex-ICSE student, Tanya from Surat. We are sharing her story for you to read in the form of the first post for the Your Story series. Hope to receive many more such recounts from our readers of your experience as a tenth grade student of ICSE!

 

Here’s what Tanya has to say…

 

Hey there everyone!
Ever since I had joined an ICSE school, I had heard enough of people saying that ICSE board is hard, tough, blah, blah… I was so extremely fearful of ICSE board that I had literally sworn that I would soon change my school as well as board. But, my mother didn’t let me change my school.
And, I could not be more thankful!
As I came in 9th standard in ICSE board, I knew there was no use of looking back. I started bracing up for our 9th exams, and in no time, 9th was over and I had got 65 percent. I wasn’t really happy with it. But, then 10th started.
After a few days, while searching for some good stuff to read for ICSE preparation, I stumbled upon this blog. And, oh God! I was praising God!
All the notes, tips and tricks, and materials helped me a lot.
Also, I had noticed that ICSE board gave you the opportunity to give yourself a higher command over the English language.
Funnily, I hadn’t joined any coaching, yet I managed to score above 87%!
Countless sleepless nights, lots of tea, and support from peers, teachers and parents really helped me!
Needless to say, I am happy that I chose to give my ICSE board exam.
And most important:
THANK YOU ICSE HELPLINE FOR HELPING ME!!! 🙂

 

Tanya, we just wanted to say that we are extremely proud of you!! 😀 😀

 

Thank you so much for sharing your journey with us, all the way from 9th grade and a 65% to the end of 10th with an 87%! Hats off to your mother for sticking with her decision and encouraging you to push yourself. Look how well that turned out! You proved that

When the going gets tough, the tough get going.

We are also humbled and truly grateful that this blog played a role in helping you in your journey through 10th grade. Your words and appreciation mean a lot!

Although we know that we cannot always live up to our readers’ expectations, we hope to continue influencing and helping our readers and fellow students in the best way possible.

Thank you, Tanya. We wish you the best of luck for your future. Stay connected. 🙂
