The article has mentioned top ten CBSE-affiliated schools of Surat. Surat is in Gujarat and so, most of the schools of the third biggest city of Gujarat are affiliated to Gujarat Board of Education. However, with the passage of time, more and more new schools are seeking affiliation from CBSE. Although the author has mentioned the top ten schools of the city, he has failed to mention the criteria of the ranking. The ranking is generally given on some well-defined criteria like academic performance in Xth and XIIth, availability and number of teachers, availability of laboratories, computers and libraries, transport facilities, NCC and other extra-curricular activities, participation in Olympiads, teacher-student ratio, area of the school etc. The author has not mentioned about these aspects of the schools ranked by him as the top ten CBSE schools of Surat. Interested readers fail to understand the ratings of the schools on the above points. They will be under the impression that the choice reflects the author's personal preference.
I personally know that among the above schools, Ryan International School, Podar International School and DPS, Surat are excellent schools in terms of academic performance, availability of other facilities and excellent teacher-student ratio.
I reiterate that such articles must give details of the criteria mentioned above while ranking the schools of a city or a district.
