Soham Dhesi did not pressurise herself too much and took her own time over the entire year to study for this exam. “I would not brood over my books throughout the day. I would watch TV, surf the Net, listen to music and also study. I became very serious soon as the study holidays started.”

Soham loves writing and has been learning Kathak for the past nine years. Soham plans to take PCMB and then pursue architecture. Later on, she wants to become a journalist too. “I have been considering journalism also as an option. But first, I would like to do architecture. My heart lies in both the fields.” Soham thanks her parents and teachers whole-heartedly.

Intense studying for three to four hours a day and also equal allocation of time to all the subjects is the success mantra of Geetanjali R Kamat. She says, “I am very happy and excited that I’ve scored an A1.

I have been working very hard for this result and it feels really good to stand here today.” Geetanjali, who is taking PCMB now, plans to do law and then become an IAS officer. She is also a good table tennis player and loves to sing, dance and read story books. Geetanjali says, “I’d definitely not have been able to get such good marks had my parents and teachers not helped me.

Studying continuously throughout the year is what Janani G K did. She did her best to make her studies stress-free. So she studied regularly and was also involved in extracurricular activities in school.

She also read lots of books and watched TV to break the monotony while she studied. “I gave importance to all my subjects and did not put down anything.”

“All credit goes to my grandparents. They were very supportive. Whenever I would sit down to study, they would come and give juice, snacks and would do everything possible to make me feel comfortable so that I could study well. They were very caring. Even my teachers were great.”

A basketball and computer freak, Prashanth Balasubramaniam says he hardly studied consistently during the year. “It was only during the study holidays that I became a little serious about studies and put in a little effort, I did not break my head too much. I am very happy about my score and I am looking forward to my 11th standard.”

In the long run, Prashanth wants to pursue engineering. As for his hobbies, “Playing on the computer is something which I do very often. That kept me going during the breaks between studies. Also, my parents and teachers have played a big role in my achieving this.”

Sindhu Srinath is very happy about her CBSE Class 10 results. Though she is one of the students to have scored a CGPA (Cumulative Grade Point Average) of 10, she does have some complaints. “I am sad about not being able to see the marks,” she says. Her parents Vijaya Srinath and V Srinath are on cloud nine. “I am very proud of her results,” says Vijaya.

Talking about her exam strategy Sindhu says she had a fixed schedule that she followed. “I studied from 10 am to 2 pm and then slept for a couple of hours before starting again,” she informs. And how about hobbies? “I just play in the evening to relax. I play basketball with my friends,” she says.

“I used to play the Veena but discontinued it after Class 9,” she adds. What about her
future plans?

“I have opted for PCMB and am going to pursue engineering after which I would do my PG and then get a job,” says the bright girl. She surely has her life charted out!
