Speaking to Hindustan Times, Divyanshi said, “This is unbelievable. I am elated and surprised at the same time”.
For her remarkable marks, Divyanshi gave credit to her father and mother. “My teachers guided me throughout the year and I was able to follow a systematic routine due to my parents. Both these factors allowed me to concentrate on my studies and score good marks,” said Divyanshi.
“I also made it a point to focus on revision and mock tests that helped me to score better,” she further added.
The 18-year-old is the second child of a businessman father and a homemaker mother. Being a history enthusiast, she wants to pursue the subject for her higher studies. “I want to study history further. I have applied for admissions in BA (H) History at Delhi University”, Divyanshi stated.
