The number of students appearing for the ISC exams is low as compared to the other boards. However, all the 396 ISC girl students who appeared for the exam showed a remarkable fete, achieving a 100% pass percentage in Indian School Certificate (ISC) Examinations this year. In the Indian Certificate of Secondary Education (ICSE), the 100% mark was, however, missed by 0.14% as two students out of 1,422 were failed. The boys too had an impressive record with 99.6% in ICSE (class 10) and 98.84% in ISC (Class 12).

In Tamil Nadu, 3,162 students from 76 different schools appeared for the class 10 exams and 912 students from 35 schools have appeared for class 12 exams this year. Gerry Arathoon, the Chief Executive and Secretary, Council for the Indian School Certificate Examination (CISCE), speaking to the Deccan Chronicle, said, "in class 12, 906 students (99.34%) have cleared the exams and 3,153 students (99.72%) passed the Class 10 exams."

At an all India level, close to 1,75,299 students appeared for class 10 examinations and the pass percentage recorded was 98.53%; 73,633 students appeared for class 12 examinations and the pass percent recorded was 96.47%. There is reportedly a slight rise in the pass percentage in both ICSE and the ISC exams. And contributing considerably to this fete is the southern region, which has recorded a pass percentage of 99.64% in ICSE and 98.97% in ISC exams. 

Two students from Chennai ranked first in both ISC and ICSE exams. While Parmesh Ravi ranked first with 98.5% in the ISC exams, Aakash Jajoo ranked first with 98.6% in the ICSE exams. Ananya Maity from Kolkata is the all-India topper in ISC with 99.5% marks. Muskan Abdulla Pathan from Pune has topped the ICSE exams in the whole of India.
