“I hope LSR turns out to be the Hogwarts of my life,” says Raksha Gopal, who topped the CBSE Class 12 exams in the country this year. A Potterhead, pianist and a music enthusiast, Raksha took admission in Lady Shri Ram College as a Political Science student.

Raksha said she reported at LSR campus with all her documents sharp at 8.30 am and finally heaved a sigh of relief when she walked out of the college gates around 1.30 pm with the admission slip in her hand. Her best of four was an astounding 99.75%, which is higher than the highest cut-off at DU this year — 99.66% for BSc (Hon) Electronics at SGTB Khalsa College. She included scores of English, Economics, History and Political Science for the best four.

“Political science will open a myriad of options for me. I have always loved this subject and am looking forward to broaden my horizons even further,” she said.

Raksha said she has a keen interest in international relations and policy-making, and that she is also a civil service aspirant. She is very delighted to be a part of the LSR family, but is also nervous about her new college life.

“It was my first and only choice.I am looking forward to a holistic development during my graduation years. I am keen on joining various societies in college,” says Raksha.
