It came as a pleasant surprise for Puneet Maheshwari, student who scored 99% in class XII results of Rajasthan Board of Secondary Education (RBSE) which were declared on Wednesday. He could hardly come to terms with his brilliant result in the examination.
The local boy from Jaipur’s Maheshwari Public School has emerged as the state topper. He has scored 495 out of 500 marks in the Science stream. “It is a joyful moment for me and my family. All the hard work that I had done finally paid off,” said Puneet.
Being a meritorious student since childhood, Puneet was well-prepared for the exam. He said that following a scheduled time-table regularly and constantly working towards the goal helps a student score good marks. “I find language subjects — Hindi and English very difficult as the writing pattern is difficult to get hold over. However, I practiced a lot and solved many questions. My teachers at school helped me a lot and they always rectified my mistakes. I have been studying for five to six hours daily, apart from school, constantly to get this result,” said Puneet.
A resident of Kishanpole market, Jaipur, Puneet gives all the credit of his success to his parents who provide him with a suitable environment to study in the house and the teachers who helped him work on his mistakes. He dreams of becoming an engineer and planning to take a year off to appear for the IIT entrance exam next year.
He also explains that while attempting the exam paper, taking out some time for the revision at the end is also significant. “While practicing, always keep some time for revision, which will be very helpful in the exam. Don’t get distracted at all and just focus on the exam paper,” said Puneet.
He also suggested completing the NCERT books thoroughly twice to thrice before the exams. “Try completing the books and solve at least five previous years’ question papers. Moreover, give your best attempt in pre-board exams as the pattern is similar to that of board exams and it will help in practicing,” said Puneet.
