Meet Srishty, the St. Annes Secunderabad student who bagged all-India 3rd rank in ISC

Hyderabad: On the morning of 25 July, Srishty got a call from her sister and her husband who lives in Bangalore. She was very happy and was jumping in excitement. Srishty asked her what the matter was and when finally told the happy news – 'she had secured all-India third rank in ISC', it was simply unbelievable.

Since then, her parents have been attending phone calls from family, friends, and relatives who are sending their wishes and congratulating them.

Srishty Ravichandran, a class XII student of St. Anne's High School in Secunderabad, scored a total of 397 out of 400. "I expected a good score but never expected such a high rank," says Srishty.

She scored 100 in Economics and Commerce, 99 in English, and 98 in Mathematics. In Accounts, she scored 93. Out of 500, she scored 490 and since ISC chooses the best of two, her final scores are 397/400.

Srishty, who currently resides in Hyderabad, is originally from Chennai, Tamil Nadu. Her family moved to Telangana because of her dad's work. She studied in a CBSE school till class X and shifted to the ISC syllabus in class XI. "The shift from CBSE to ISC was difficult but my school taught all the concepts again from the basics and that helped a lot," says Srishty.




"My dad is a businessman, so that is how I was introduced to accounts. My sister, who is a doctor, encouraged me to take up Commerce. She always motivated me to try and explore new things," she adds.

For Srishty, online classes were a new experience. "It was difficult to concentrate sitting in front of the system for so long. But I am grateful that I did not have any internet connectivity issues like several other students," she says.

Interestingly, Srishty also did not go for any tuition in the last two years. It was the training that she got from her school and the two-three hours of daily revision that helped. "Before the exams, I also wrote down answers and practised key points so that it would be easier to write in the given 1.5-2 hours. I also worked on sample papers. For subjects like English, I even practised writing essays on random topics," explains Srishty.

Srishty has secured a seat for BCom in finance and accounts at Christ University but she says her dream is to become an IAS officer.
