Who is Manya Gupta?
Manya Gupta, an ordinary student of the Heritage School located in Kolkata was in utter shock when she received the news. Manya has topped the ISCE or Indian School Certificate Examinations by scoring 99.75 percent in class 12 final exams.
When asked how she got the news about the results, she said she did not realize that she topped across India until her friends gave her the news. She said that when she inquired about her friends’ results, they revealed the big news.
Role of the School in Manya’s Preparation
While talking about exam preparations, Manya also gave credit for her achievement to her school. She said that her school supported her in every way possible while she was preparing for the term-end exams.
She also talked about how she had to change her entire schedule to study efficiently for the exams. During the two years of lockdown, all exams were conducted online. During these exams, she only studied a few nights before exams which negatively impacted her sleep schedule.
However, as schools began conducting offline exams, this schedule proved useless and exhausting. Hence, before starting preparations for exams, she changed her sleep schedule to study properly.
While talking about her future, Manya stated that she would like to move forward in psychology for higher studies. Manya said she has always been interested in the subject since she was young. Hence, it was always decided that she would pursue further education in psychology once the school was over.
She further added that she has already applied to several colleges for psychology courses abroad. She also wants to apply for similar programs in India as well.
