Hyderabad leads with a score of 87; Surat ranks #1 among non-metros. Overall India’s Confidence Index at 75
School Edtech company, LEAD, on Sep 8 announced the launch of India’s first Student Confidence Index, a study that assesses confidence levels of school-going students on Conceptual Understanding, Critical Thinking, Communication, Collaboration, and Exposure to opportunities and platforms.
Developed in collaboration with Tata Institute of Social Sciences (LMRF, SMLS), LEAD’s Index of these five confidence-building attributes reveals several powerful insights into Student Confidence across regions, cities, demographics and various other parameters. .While India stands at a Confidence level of 75 on a scale of 100, 36% of students have indicated top-bracket Confidence levels (81-100).
Hyderabad at an index score of 87 tops the list. Delhi stood at 80, bagging the 2nd spot among metros. The sizeable gaps between metros and non-metros suggest that students in India’s metros continue to be more confident than their peers in non-metros. Also, students in metros have a clear advantage over their peers in non-metros* in the five core attributes.
Student Confidence Index surveyed 2800+ students across Classes 6–10 in 6 metros, 6 non-metros, and 3 Tier 2/3 cities. The study was administered by market research and survey company Borderless Access.

Commenting on the Index, LEAD Co-founder and CEO Sumeet Mehta said, “For India to be Atmanirbhar, our students need to have atmavishwas. But there was no way of knowing the confidence level of students of our country. This is an annual survey and will help us monitor the confidence level of our students and help us make focused interventions through our education programs.”
