Q.2. Whom/What do you attribute your success to?

Ans. I believe that it is due to our collective efforts, that we have succeeded today. My parents, teachers, friends and family have worked together to make this day a reality. And without God Almighty’s divine blessings, it would not have been possible. Hence, I can proudly say, that our ‘team’ has won.

Q.3. What was your plan of action as schedule for preparation during the examinations?

Ans. I was a regular student, and revised the concepts learned in the school at home. Also, I focussed on realistic time management i.e. giving ample time to each subject, and taking time out for breaks in between. An integral part of my preparations, was solving sample papers in an examination-oriented environment, which made me get my timing right.

Q.4. Most students absent themselves from school to attend coaching classes – Do you think this is the right approach?

Ans. I strongly detest this practice, as no coaching class can equal the learning acquired at school. From my personal experience, I can say that just by being regular at school and paying complete attention to what the teachers taught, one can do exceedingly well.

Q.5. In what ways do you think your school helped you?

Ans. My alma mater, DPS Vasant Kunj, has given me infinitely more than what I could have asked for. Each day in school was an alluring experience, where I gained as much in studies, as I did in all other important aspects of life. My teachers, working relentlessly hard all the time,and duly co-ordinated by our respected Principal, made sure that I stayed motivated and inspired.

Q.6. What are your plans for the future?

Ans. I want to pursue economics from SRCC or St.Stephens, and later wish to join the Civil Services.

Q.7. Needless to say you are a role model for the students. What message would you like to convey to the young aspirants who are yet to appear for the class 12 Board examinations?

Ans. I would just say, that everyone should do their best, and not worry too much about the result. The focus should be on working hard, rather than on achieving good marks.
