The Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations (CISCE) on Monday declared the results of ISC class 12 board exam 2017.
Miss India beauty contest second runner-up 2016, Pankhuri Gidwani has cleared the class 12 examination with 97.25 per cent.
In her Facebook post, she wrote, “97.25 it is. So there is something I would like all my friends and followers to know that I had missed my board examinations for participating in Miss India (at 18) and after winning Miss India 2nd Runners Up, I had to train for Miss Grand International and received the 25 position out of 80 countries.”
The post further reads, “After coming back from the pageant, I battled a number of hard situations, one of them getting adjusted to studying again after a year of glamour. I put my all into it, and this is the result I came forth with. So, all the people out there who think that something they want is impossible to accomplish,whether it is academics, your dreams or the love you want, you can achieve it all, just have the grit, determination and a true heart to pursue it all.”
According to a report in HT, La Martiniere Girls College principal, Aashrita Dass praised Gidwani’s efforts. “It was good on her part that she came back from the contest to take the examination and finished her secondary education with good marks. This will add new feather to her modelling career.”
In association with the Department of Electronics and Information Technology, the Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations (CICSE) will offer a DigiLocker facility to class 10 and class 12 students in all its affiliated schools across the country.
