Discarding the popular notion that smartphone distracts students from studying, CBSE zonal science topper (Bihar & Jharkhand),Maryam Raza Khan of Notre Dame Academy, Patna, said she used her smartphone in a restrained manner. “I don’t have Facebook and Instagram accounts, but I use Whatsapp. I used to see YouTube videos related to academic topics, which helped me strengthen my foundation,” Maryam said. Maryam scored 97.8%.

“In this competitive academic environment, one needs to plan studies in a proper manner. The NCERT books helped me build a solid foundation. I used to take eight hours of sleep and regular breaks between the study hours, which boosted my productivity,” Maryam added.

Both her father and mother are educationists. “I thank my parents for their supportive role. They never pressurised me to study,” she said.

Khan, who is also taking engineering coaching, has performed well in JEE Advanced and is now aspiring to do well in the JEE Mains examination. “If I crack JEE Mains, I will opt for architecture or computer science,” she said.
