Das secured 97 marks in Hindi and full marks in other subjects. Das calls Hindi as his weak subjects and feels that he must have lost three marks in spelling mistakes.

He also dreams of working with NASA and exploring space. He says that he likes Stephen Hawking and has read books related to space. He also adds that drawing and reading are his hobbies. Adree’s mother Animita says that he has always topped in class, So I let him decide how he wants to study for the exams.
Deepsna Panda scored 98 in English and 99 in Social Studies and a straight 100 in all the other subjects. Deepsna’s mother Sanjukta, talking about her daughter’s success in the examination said that the family had expected her to score over 98 percent given the fact that she was a consistent topper throughout her school years. Talking about Deepsna’s study schedule mother Sanjukta said that there was no such strategy, she was regular in her studies since the beginning and gave equal importance to all the subjects. Deepsna wishes to pursue medical studies in the future.
Dharti Kaushal Mehta said that she studies consistently from Day 1. She woke up early and used to meditate in the morning. She would start at 6 or 7 in the morning until afternoon, take a break for two hours and start studying again until 8. Mehta scored 97 in English and 100 in all the other subjects. About losing three marks in English she said, that the paper had gone well, but she might have lost marks in creative writing, where one cannot be given fixed marks or in reading skills.
For the past four years, Dharti has been learning Kung Fu which allowed her to be fit and stress-free. When asked about her future choice she says that she will choose Physics-Chemistry-Maths as these are her favourite subjects. She wants to pursue engineering, preferably from IIT.
