Q.1. Heartiest Congratulations Veni! Were you expecting such a phenomenal score in the Class XII board examination?
Ans. Thank you so much. We all hope and believe that we’ll do wonders but it was still a pleasant surprise. I never expected such grand recognition.
Q.2. Whom/What do you attribute your success to?
Ans. My teachers were there for me ALL the time. My family was supportive throughout the year, motivating me and driving me to work harder.
Q.3. What was your plan of action as schedule for preparation during the examinations?
Ans. Consistency was what I believed in since day one of class 12th. When you’re at such an important stage of your life, you cannot take things lightly. Hard work is the mantra to success and that’s exactly what got me such a score.
Q.4.Do you have a role model?
Ans. I have always looked up to my sister. I’ve seen her through thick and thin and she really inspires me.
Q.5. Most students absent themselves from school to attend coaching classes. Do you think this is the right approach?
Ans. No, I believe coaching classes are helpful, but only along with school. One should be regular to school and aim at completing the syllabus twice, once in school and once in tuition. Our school teachers are in constant touch with CBSE and this is very crucial for the board examination.
Q.6. In what ways, do you think your school helped you?
Ans. I think my decision to shift to DPS VK in 11th was an intelligent one. Had it not been for the teachers who were there to help me, motivate me and support me, I couldn’t have done this. DPS VK truly helped me stand out.
Q.7. What are your plans for the future?
Ans. As of now, I want to pursue Economics Honors from one of the top colleges in the country. Along with this, I also plan to do Actuarial Science.
Q.8. Needless to say you are now a role model for all the students. What message would you like to convey to the young aspirants who are yet to appear for the class XII board exam?
Ans. I’d like to tell them that they should work hard to achieve what they want; it’s all about one year. All school exams matter, no matter how monotonous they make your life. Making some sacrifices is important to feel like you deserve success. At the same time, this isn’t the end of life. So, one should always try their best but must always know that there are greater, better things out there.
