In a recent move, the Bombay High Court rejected the plea of an ICSE student filed by his father, an advocate, to consider the average marks of six subjects scored by his son.

A division bench of Justice Satyaranjan Dharmadhikari and Justice Gautam Patel stated that the average of all subjects was never applicable for students who took only six subjects. This according to the bench was “but an attempt to re-write the entire edifice of the law from (Supreme Court judgment) in 2010 onwards.” The judges clearly mentioned that at no point since then was there ever an option of the average of six subjects as being an option for ICSE students.

This left the students with the choice of either opting for best of five or average of seven subjects. According to the rules set by the ICSE Board, the students have to take 3 compulsory subjects in Group I, 2 or 3 in Group II and 1 from Group III for admission to First-Year Junior Colleges.
