Toppers and their mantra

I just put in a lot of hard work. The thing about GPA system is that students have to keep working throughout the year. If one gets a good score in one test, he or she might not do well in another. So consistency is very important in GPA system. I did fairly well in all my tests and especially semester exams that have a considerably good share in the final score that we get. I had difficulty in Maths and I gave more importance to that subject. During my free time, I listen to music and also play guitar. I am also into theatre and get my training from a studio. My parents are very supportive.

I studied throughout the year and maintained consistency and the results are also encouraging. I play chess during my free time and my other hobby is painting. I felt Maths to be difficult compared to other subjects.

I am extremely happy that I got a 10 CGPA. I studied regularly and also involved in other activities such as playing tennis and piano. The teachers were quite helpful. I was also involved in lot of activities at school like dramatics, quizzes and in charge of our class assembly.

It is just hard work. I paid attention to regular classes at school and also tried to solve and answer all the online papers. I was solving two online papers a day. It was very much helpful. I scored well also because I never kept reading the same textbooks again and again. I only referred to the books to correct my faults. My hobbies are reading books and writing.
