No.1 ranked U-17 badminton player pair writes ICSE English Paper 1 Exam at Indian Embassy in Berlin
In what could be the first instance of Indian students appearing for board exams in another country, a Mumbai badminton player and her teammate from Nagpur took their ICSE (Class-X) Examinations on Friday, March 10th, 2017 in Berlin, Germany where they were playing a tournament.
Simran Singhi, 15, from Ryan International School, Malad and Ritika Thaker, 16, from Chanda Devi Saraf School, Nagpur wrote the English Paper at the Indian Embassy in Berlin from 9 am to 11 am (Berlin time), three hours before their second-round match in the German Junior International Grand Prix.
Management of both the schools, the Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations, officials from the Badminton Association of India, and the Indian Diplomats pulled off a remarkable co-ordination to ensure the question papers reached the Indian Embassy in Berlin in time and the two didn’t miss out on an academic year.
