His diligence and hard work paid off, as he became his school’s topper as well as claimed the position of state topper, with an All India Rank of III, although CBSE has not released the merit list officially.
Yash told TOI, “I would like to thank my parents and teachers for supporting and constantly encouraging me to continue with my preparation. I am happy that I could fulfil their expectations eventually.”
Being an army officer’s son, he has changed eight schools in the last 10 years but that instability has not affected him at all. Yash has consistently been a dedicated and focused student, and his hard work has been reflected in his achievement of high ranks in his classes throughout his academic career.
Senior Army officers posted in the command appreciated his academic achievement. Even the Indian Army took note of his excellent performance.
“#Youngachiever #IndianArmy congratulates Master Yash Sinha, an alumnus of Army Public School, #Pune for securing the #AIR 3 position in #CBSE Class X Examination. Wishing him good luck & more laurels in future. Our family makes us #proud,” the army tweeted.
He followed a structured study routine, concentrating on understanding the National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT) concepts thoroughly. He also referred to a few additional reference books and sample papers to strengthen his preparation. The school’s pre-board exams played a crucial role in helping him gauge his progress and practice for the final exams.
“Yash maintained a calm and composed demeanour during his preparation as he felt confident about covering all the topics. However, he faced a challenge when he fell ill just a few days before the mathematics exam. Despite being unable to revise as much as he would have liked, Yash pulled through and scored 100% in the subject,” said his parents, when asked about the challenges he faced during his preparations.
Yash has developed an interest in pursuing aeronautical engineering and is currently preparing for the JEE Advanced examination, hoping to get into an excellent institution to fulfil his academic goals.
