Like many studious students, Nitisha dedicated around five hours for self studies, apart from six to seven hours of study in school and institute. “It is like a dream come true. I dedicate my entire time to studies. I didn’t watch television for a year and was not in contact of any social media. I became little isolated and focused entirely on my studies,” she said.

Purohit found support in family and teachers. To sharpen her knowledhe, she joined a private coaching institute in Kota. Purohit even scored 91.4 percent marks in the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) Class 12 board this year.

    In this you have written that she goes to school and ins ute for 6 hours but how can this be possible . I think she took dummy admission and studied 6 hours in the coaching ins ute rather going to school. Then its obvious she would have got time to study more than the students who go to school regularly. This is a very bad and government should take action on taking dummy admission. Every child in kota take dummy admission and thays the reason why they are topping the examination bcz the children who are going to school are tend to waste the 6 hrs as school does nothing. Seriously government should ban these dummy admission.
