While talking to ANI, Manya Gupta said, "I did not think that I was going to top India at all. I asked my friends how many marks they got in these exams and they, in turn, told me that you have topped. I was unaware before that."
She further mentioned that her school helped a lot in her preparation for these examinations.
"My school helped, they did whatever they could since we were in a period of lockdown for two years. I was studying mainly before exams so I had no sleep schedule," she said.
