How does it feel to be a topper in Ekya?
Our batch was filled with exceptionally talented students. It feels great to be one among them now.
Did you have a fixed pattern of study? How did you prepare for the exam?
I didn’t study on a daily basis but I made sure that I listened to the teachers and understood what they were teaching in class. I made my own notes for most of the subjects and they helped me a lot.
Do solving old question papers help?
Yes. I felt that solving old question papers boosted my confidence in the subjects. But it’s important to have a good hold of each chapter before solving the papers.
What was your day like during the study holidays?
I am a night person and I always feel that my understanding of the subject is better when I study at night. So during the day, I mostly relaxed or studied a few easy chapters. I studied rigorously at night and also solved questions chapter-wise.
What was your coping mechanism during the exams? what was your stress-buster?
I constantly needed yummy food to keep myself motivated to study. A hot cup of tea prepared by my dad kept me awake during my night study. I listened to music. I watched tennis and cricket matches with my dad. But the best of all was annoying my sister, what a stress buster!
What was the highlight of your success?
I had a hectic schedule for 2 years and I’m glad that I was able to manage almost everything. I understood that hard work, dedication and determination will never go unappreciated or unawarded.
In the age of digital distractions, did you have to stay away from gadgets for the month,
No, I didn’t stay away from gadgets. In fact, I could easily clarify my doubts from my friends when it wasn’t possible to reach out to the teachers. But of course, the usage was limited.
How did Ekya help in your preparation for the Boards?
Many class tests and preparatory exams were held which helped us prepare better for the boards. The teachers too were very approachable. They posted videos, questions, and other important information online for better understanding.
The success mantra that you want to share with other students?
Nobody’s born a genius, so hard work is the key. Love the subjects that you study. Never forget to make time for the things that you love to do. Always engage in sports to keep your mind and body fit which will, in turn, help you perform better in academics.
Others achievements if any?
Captained the school throwball team. Won runners twice in throwball tournaments. Won the best player award in 2k17.
What are your best memories from School?
The lunch breaks, the crazy times in class when teachers weren’t there. But most importantly, how we annoyed each other but were there for each other no matter what.
