Isha Srivastava, who also obtained second rank, wants to prepare for IIT and later join the civil services. She scored 100 in English, Mathematics and science and 99 in Hindi and social science.
“I was not expecting 498 marks. I was hoping something around 94-95%. I am really happy with my result which would not have been possible without proper guidance from teachers,” said Isha who believes in self-study. Her hobby is listening to music.
