New Delhi:

Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav's daughter was among those many students who passed the class 12 exams (also called the Indian School Certificate (ISC) exam) on Friday. This morning, the proud father tweeted to say that his daughter, Aditi, scored 98 per cent in the board exams.

The former Uttar Pradesh chief minister also congratulated other students who passed the exams.

"Congratulations to my daughter Aditi for scoring 98% in ISC XII. We are proud of all the students who have worked very hard. They are going to make our future bright," Mr Yadav tweeted and shared a picture with his daughter and wife.

The results of the Class 10 (ICSE) and Class 12 (ISC) were declared on Friday and were made available through the board website and SMS facility.

The board had to cancel eight papers which were scheduled from July 1 to July 14 as cases of coronavirus spiked across the country. The result has been calculated on the basis of an alternative assessment method which took into account best three percentage marks obtained in subjects for which written exam was held and marks awarded in internal assessment as well as project work.

The Council for Indian School Certificate Examinations (CISCE) has decided against bringing out a merit list this year in view of "exceptional circumstances".

"Given the exceptional circumstances, this year CISCE will not be publishing a merit list for either the ICSE or ISC year 2020 Examinations," CICSE Chief Executive and Secretary Gerry Arathoon said.

2,06,525 studnets have cleared the ICSE exams, and 85,611 students passed the ISC exam across the country.
