Some Tips From The Champion
“If you wish to do well in board exams then thorough knowledge on the subjects is required. Understanding the language and the exam pattern has made things easier for me. Though I followed the sample papers and last 10 years questions religiously, however this year, the questions were trickier and knowledge-based.” – Divyanshi JainStated On The Indian Express
“I prayed every day but also studied hard. I made notes for each subject and made sure that these notes were brief, so I could understand the lessons quicker and better.” – Divyanshi JainStated On NDTV
“Divyanshi also told that she never crammed any subject since there is a chance to forget and she used to analyze every day about what she learned during her revisions. Her focus was more on NCERT books rather than solving the guides. She also said that she used to sleep 8 hrs as proper sleep is necessary to perform better.”Stated On ABP Live
