What toppers say

Stuti Almal, a student of National Public School, HSR Layout, secured 99.2% in the Commerce stream in the Class 12 exam. She scored 496/500. Speaking to The Hindu, Ms. Almal said, “I was surprised at first, but I’m really exhilarated about my result. I believe consistency is key. Practising and making sure your concepts are clear is the biggest factor in making you score well in the exams. Taking regular breaks, and balancing academics with extracurricular activities is equally important. I am planning to do a Chartered Accountancy course after my graduation,” she said.

Asmita Goswami, a student of Freedom International School, HSR Layout, who scored 495/500 (99%) in Class 12, in the Humanities stream said, “I took up Humanities because I was extremely interested in Psychology. Having scored 100/100 in the subject solidified my resolve to pursue the mental health field and help destigmatise a lot of issues which persist in colleges and schools. I’m especially interested psychological theory and research.”

Saanvi Jain, a student of The Deens Academy, Whitefield, Bengaluru, and the achiever of 100 percentile score in Joint Entrance Examination 2024 (JEE Main), session-2 of paper 1, and M. Monica, a student of Sri Chaitanya Techno School, Ramamurthy Nagar, have secured 98.8% marks in the Science stream of Class 12. Both have scored 494/500. Monica, preparing for JEE (Advanced), said, “I am interested in pursuing Computer Science Engineering and Artificial Intelligence at the Indian Institute of Science and I want to make a career in these fields. Do not compare your scores and capabilities with others who are doing better than you. Focus on concepts rather than problem-solving. Working on your basics goes a long way.”

“I am preparing for JEE (Advanced). I attempted NEET exam well. Based on the ranks and seat available in the institution, I will decide on joining either an engineering or a medical course,” said Saanvi.

In Class 10, Maya Rajesh, a student of National Public School, Indiranagar, ecured 99.2%. Suchitha M., a student of Sri Chaitanya Techno School, Davanagere, and Sathkruthi Timmanadoddi Karanam, a student of Sri Chaitany Techno School, Sindhanuru, have secured 494/500 with 98.8%.
