The lockdown was announced in March and things changed. How did you prepare for your exams during COVID-19? How did it affect your preparation? What was the most striking thing during this preparation?
We used to discuss and talk with our friends and classmates on a positive note since all my classes are online , a lot of time saved. I used this extra time to do other things as well as study .
What was your daily routine for Class x exams before lockdown and after? How much time did you devote to self-study because coaching can only teach you but you have to do the work?
Like I said we got a lot of extra time so I used this time for self study .
How was the preparation different from the early days to just a month before Class X exam?
The thing we weren’t sure if the board exams will happen with in the time so we were having model exams , conducted by the school like we got so kind of confidence to attend the real exams.
What was your exam day strategy? What was the roughest and the easiest section according to you?
My strategy was to study old question papers, doing them a little bit to reduce stress , if the board exams would have happened and my roughest subject was social.
Which college is your dream college for studying further ?
I haven’t thought of it yet

They are very supportive , they used to help me with any doubt I had , my sister and I used to do activities , we used to watch TV or play together
What role did your school ICSK play in your successful achievement ?
My teachers were very supportive. They were like ready to solve any doubts when students in mind also they used to give us weekly assignments which were very helpful . our principal was telling us not to worry and reassuring us
Tell us what’s so special about your school teachers and management, how did they inspire you ?
They always reassured us that we would be there if we had any doubts you asked them .
What message do you have for students who are going to attend next year ?
Relax and study from the extra materials and don’t stress on yourself you should also go out and play and spend time with friends because they can also help us destress
