Shreya Chauhan of Saupin’s School, Panchkula, bagged the top position across the tricity in the Council for Indian School Certificate Examinations (CISCE) Class 10 results that were declared on Monday evening.
The 16-year-old daughter of Manimajra-based businessman SPS Chauhan, Shreya scored 98% marks. Chandigarh-based Strawberry Fields High School’s Adit Jindal scored 97.6% marks to bag the second position in the tricity.
Tricity’s third spot is shared by four students, each scoring 97.4% marks.
Charu Gupta from Panchkula’s Little Flower Convent School, Amanjot Singh of Yadavindra Public School, SAS Nagar, Srijan Aggarwal of St Xavier’s School, Chandigarh and Ishaan Singh of Strawberry Fields High School shared the third position.
Shreya said that she was feeling “on top of the world”. “There was never a day throughout the year when I put my guard down,” she said
An excellent speaker and guitarist, Shreya said that she remained away from distractions such as Facebook and preferred to unwind by playing her guitar.
For the past several years, ICSE tricity toppers have been from Little Flower Convent School or other tops schools in Chandigarh and Mohali. But this time, Saupin’s School in Panchkula emerged as a dark horse. School principal Jayeta Auddy said the school inched towards excellence with little efforts every year and that the “credit went to teachers and staff.”
“In our school, we focus more on quality education and motivate every student to read more and think innovatively,” she said
