When asked about how she prepared for the examination she says "I have been regular in my studies and followed same routine for the last two years and I guess that's why I did not feel much of pressure prior to exam." "I made notes and kept on revising chapters regularly but English was one subject which was relatively tough to deal with" added Anoushka.
Anoushka's mother Ranjita Srivastava who is a housewife later said that her daughter was studious right from the childhood.

Speaking to TOI over phone says Kshitij "I am experiencing a mixed feeling due to the death of my grandfather but overall I am happy with the result." "But scoring 100% in English has really come as a surprise as I never expected this even though I had chalked out a special strategy for this subject, I had made notes for each chapter and revised it whenever I got time" said Kshitij.
Kshitij whose father is a deputy director on ministry of defense while his mother a school teacher wants to become an aeronautical engineer.
