Regularity, claims Mittal, has been her key to crack the exam. “I used to be regular and consistent with my studies. I did homework daily and practiced as many questions as I could every day in all subjects,” she said.

Mittal has been a good student throughout. In her class 12 board exams, she scored 98.4 per cent marks and 99 per cent in class 10. While there was a debate around conducting exams amid the pandemic, Mittal claims, the lockdown has helped her prepare better.
