Tushar’s subjects were English, History, Political Science, Physical Education, and Geography. He has full marks in all of them. “I don’t think one should get full marks in English because no letter or essay can be perfect,” said Tushar.
Talking about his CBSE board exam preparation routine, Singh said: “I did not follow any strict routine while studying. I just studied around seven hours a day. I was on Instagram and social media all through the board exams. I also used to watch TV at times for a break from studies. “I didn’t take any tuitions for the CBSE 12th board exams. I did take tuitions in class 11, but in class 12, I got my doubts solved from my school teachers only.”
Tushar was also among the toppers in Class 10 in his school and had scored 97% marks. Tushar is the eldest son in the family and both his mother and father are professors.
This year, due to the prevailing situation, the Board would not release the merit list/ toppers list.
