In the CBSE Class-12 exams this year, Krisha Sethi was a tied tricity topper in humanities stream.

Garima says, “Hardwork is what pays and there are no short cuts to success,” while for Rasleen Kaur, “There is no hard and fast rule to success. Just fall in love with what you do and success will follow.”
