Anurag Malik, scored the highest marks in class 12th exams and Riya Jain secured the highest percentage in class 10th exams.
While preparing for the boards, Malik shared, I used to study for 12-14 hours a day and when the exams arrived, it went up to 18 hours. I would take a halt after finalizing a set number of chapters. Unless I attained these targets, I did not budge.
Malik had English, Hindi, physics, chemistry, and mathematics as his subjects in class 12 and achieved the highest marks in Physics, with 99 out of 100. I had given proportional time to all my subjects but I have a tendency towards physics. I am eager in knowing how things work and that is why, I think, I got the highest in it.
