Meet the young achievers of the district, who believe in a holistic approach to learning. According to them regular studies and their resolve to stay away from social media helped them in securing top ranks. Standing at an important threshold of their career where they would be opting for a particular stream, the toppers of Class X are well-focused on their goals.

“I want to be a PCS officer to pay back to society,” said an ecstatic Maanya Sekhri, who topped the district with 99 per cent marks.

A student of MGN Public School, Maanya, secured a perfect 100 in social studies and information technology, 99 in English and mathematics and 97 in science. “I maintained an easy timetable. I was a regular student in school and dedicated three to four hours to self-study each day. I have now opted for non-medical in Class XI,” she said.

The second position in the district was bagged by Swapnil Chhibber of Police DAV School and Arushi Midha of Swami Sant Dass Public School, who scored 98.8 per cent marks. The third spot in the district was shared by four students — Anupama of Sanskriti KMV School, Jai Shree of Army Public School, Pranjal Setia of Cambridge International School for Girls and Arshdeep Pawar of Police DAV School — who scored 98.6 per cent marks.

“I’m not at all active on social media. I don’t remember the last time I used Facebook,” said Swapnil, whose father Sandeep Chhibber is a marketing executive and mother Anu Chhibber, a teacher. He said self-study, regular revision and consistency is the only key to success. “I never studied for fixed hours, as I strongly believe that you cannot correlate the number of study hours with the output,” he said, adding that he had now taken non-medical as he wants to become a computer science engineer.

Arushi Midha shared that staying away from social media was one of the pledges that she made before exams, but she used a little bit of WhatsApp to chat with her friends or exchange notes. “I took no tuitions and I feel proud to say that my result is all based on self-study and classroom learning. I am very much interested in computer science, so I have taken a non-medical stream now and am looking forward to being a successful computer engineer one day,” she said.

Inspired by doctors who are risking their lives during Covid-19, district’s third ranker Anupama has decided to take medical.

“I want to pay back to society by contributing in the medical field, especially by helping the poor and downtrodden. I also have a record of 100 per cent attendance in school since LKG,” she said, adding that she has performed many times at Harivallabh Sangeet Sammelan and that she gives equal importance and time to her extracurricular activities.

“Do not study under pressure,” says Pranjal Setia, who was on cloud nine after seeing her results. She said she always wanted to make her teachers and parents proud. The smile

they had on their face after my result was announced was so satisfying. I am grateful and owe my success to my mentors and family.” She said she had now taken commerce plus mathematics in Class XI and she is eyeing to be a business woman in future. Jai Shree said: “I had a fixed routine and followed it till the very end. I used to learn in the morning and revise at noon and night. Refreshing yourself is equally important, so I used to take small breaks in between,” she said, adding that she was fond of reading non-fiction books and never stopped her reading habit even during exams.

Daughter of BR Singh, an Army Officer, Jai Shree has now taken non-medical and wants to crack the JEE to be an engineer in future.

Sharing her success mantra, Arshdeep Kaur Pawar, said her active participation in the class helped her score well. “Another thing I focused on was obeying teachers and listening to whatever was being taught properly. I followed a simple schedule and have not put any pressure on myself for marks.” She said she has now opted for a non-medical stream and wants to be an engineer.
