Mythili Mishra, 2nd topper of CBSE class XII exam
Mishra of Amity International School, who achieved a second rank in the Central
Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) class XII exams, wants to become an IAS
With 99 per cent marks, she is also the Uttar Pradesh state topper.
Mythili wants to procure a bachelor's and master's degree in Political
Science and then aspires to be an IAS officer. Both her parents are advocates.
17-year-old Mythili loves to paint and read.
When she checked her results at home after they were declared on Monday, she
did not know that she was the second topper in the country. It was only when
calls started pouring from her school and the media.
Mythili says she used to study regularly for 4 to 5 hours per day after
attending school. And during exams she studied for over 12 hours daily.
Always present in the class, she said she never bunked classes.
Continuous attention in class provides strong base to students and revision
at home helps imbibe the chapter while it is in the second revision when the
chapter is completely understood, she says.
The second topper says she did not take tuitions but got help from parents
and teachers who devoted extra time for her.
