ISC Class XII Toppers 2013
Bhvana Vijay ISC 2013 Topper – Rank 1
Bhuvanya Vijay, a student of class 12 at St Joseph’s Academy in Dehradun, was the overall topper of ICSE Class 12 Board with a score of 99%.
The national topper in ISCE board Class 12 exams, Bhuvanya Vijay, is already a national champion debater. This might explain her choice for further studies: a degree in law.
“Being an avid debater, I want to go for law as it would help me in making a change in society,” says Bhuvanya. She wants to join the National Law School of India University, Bengaluru, which is a premier law college in India.
Despite topping the board exam with science subjects – with 99% marks overall – Bhuvanya wants to study neither engineering nor medical science. She says that she had more passion for arts subjects but took up science just to keep working hard, as science subjects required more technical knowledge.
A student of St Joseph’s Academy in Dehradun, Bhuvanya was adjudged best national debater in the Frank Anthony memorial debate contest of the ISCE board. She is the daughter of Indian Forest Services officer Vijay Kumar and landscaping professional Sunita Vijay.
Bhuvanya says she plans to form her own NGO at a later stage to provide education to women and improve their living conditions.
Sharing her success mantra she said that the most important thing was to be focused on one’s objective and maintain balance between studies and other activities.
On being asked whether she expected such high marks, Bhuvanya said that she did expect more marks than the 98% marks she secured in the high school (ICSE) exams.
The girl who has done Uttarakhand proud by emerging as the all-India topper, says that she put in 12-14 hours of study every day from December onwards.
And yet, she also found time for her hobbies of watching films and reading novels. “I love the works of Charles Dickens and Shakespeare. I read a lot in my spare time,” says Bhuvanya, all set for a course in law ahead.
