Credit for my success goes to my teachers and parents. They guided me throughout. Prime reason for my success is following a simple rule of focusing on building concept and not just scoring marks. I would advise the following to achieve success:
Don’t study for marks, learn concepts
Don’t limit yourself to classroom lessons; explore and expand your knowledge
There is no value of coaching classes, as they repeat normal classroom lectures. Instead, study on your own and utilise coaching time to prepare personal notes
Whenever you study, surround yourself with positive aura and meditate
Have faith on your teachers and obey them
I have always been very determined towards my goals. I concentrated on every subject without rating any of them as less important. I believe in practicing hard. I never studied for long hours; rather I studied in breaks. I feel we should always take breaks where we indulge ourselves in creative activities and sports. For class X boards, I would suggest sticking to NCERT
We can become successful by studying, learning manners and developing intelligence with knowledge. I always followed a proper schedule, as discipline is must for achieving a goal. I organised my studying hours with proper breaks for recreation. I followed NCERT and solved practise papers. I always had checkpoints for myself, where I would revise and check my knowledge. I allotted proper time to each subject and also played my own motivator all the time
I am grateful to my mother, who supported me and helped me achieve my target. I had to learn to manage time and work hard regularly. I was able to achieve this position because I had a healthy environment at home as well as in school. What takes us to success is curiosity and further, settling our doubts. I was curious and my teachers helped me by settling my queries. Teachers showed the path, but I had to follow their advice. I feel success is like greed, we keep wanting more
What has helped me achieve my goal is dedication combined with determination. Teachers guided me in overcoming obstacles of my path. I had set a task from the beginning of the session and worked throughout the year. I followed my teachers’ advice, solved papers and took proper breaks. I think it is important to believe in oneself to become successful
I would suggest going for self study if one wants to get good results. I managed my time while focusing on NCERT for basics and further references for explanation. I tried to solve as many sample papers as possible. I have learned one thing that never to hide a problem. If we accept and talk about a problem, then it is possible to solve it. However, neglecting an issue keeps it alive forever. I would extend special thanks to Chanchal madam and Pravin sirPrerna Sahu
As I have learned, doing your best and managing time lead to success. I worked hard for this goal. Every day, I spent four to five hours studying while balancing it with co-curricular engagements. I feel one should study smartly and not just hard. In order to study smart, we need to concentrate on our studies without diversions
My father is the sole support behind my success. He always stood by me without any expectation of a good result. Teachers helped me by guiding me in studies. I studied with focus for just two to three hours in a day while keeping fit with sports. I never compete with anyone, which helps me concentrating on my efforts
School has supported me by settling my curiosity and giving me the freedom to explore. I have always been self-motivated. I never had any pressure from my family to score great marks. I wanted to bring pride to my parents and school, which I did.
Everyone has supported me in achieving my goal— my parents, teachers and friends. I continued to work hard even if I failed, which led me to finally achieve success. I am passionate about studies and believe regular positive enforcement helped me
Late APJ Abdul Kalam is my inspiration. His ideas inspired me to study and work hard. I guess I studied without deviation, which helped me in achieving my goal. I regularly play badminton and even played during exam days. I always cleared my doubts about studies n Leena Tapadia
Achieving this score was a dream for me. I studied, revised and worked hard every day after school. This regular revision of classes helped me achieving my goal. I did not do anything extra. I just studied regularly and concentrated on NCERT texta
