This year, ICSE results were tabulated on two parameters. The first was the average marks of papers/subjects scored by candidates in various tests/examinations conducted by the school for Class 9 and Class 11, during academic years 2019-20 and 2020-21, respectively. The second parameter was the internal assessment marks (the project and practical work) of 2021 examinations.
