Vinutha Rao from Poorna Prajna College in Udupi, who secured the second rank from the Science stream in the State, was overwhelmed with her stupendous achievement. She has scored 587.

Speaking to Deccan Herald, Vinutha said working right from day one has yielded such good results. “I had some expectations, but did not expect such great results,” she added.

Vinutha is planning to take up Instrumental Engineering in Manipal Institute of Technology. However, she has few hopes in CET as she found the Mathematics paper tough.

Vinutha said she owed her success to the support extended by her parents and lecturers. She also added that additional coaching from Mahesh Tutorials helped her realise her dream.
