‘Apeejay prepares students for competitive examinations’

Students of Apeejay, Noida shine bright in the national level Talent Search exam 2021



At the annual national-level Apeejay Talent Search Examinations 2021 (ATSE), held virtually this year for classes 9-12, eight students from Apeejay School, Noida received prestigious ranks. Students Pratyaksh Chauhan (Class 9), Bhavya Tiwari (Class 10) and Arpit Sinha (Class 12) bagged the first rank. Other students Saanvi Mehta (Class 9), Agastya Amit Khamkar (Class 9), Vivan Bansal (Class 10), Akshit Chhabra (Class 10) and Aakar Gupta (Class 10) received meritorious positions across subjects such as Mental Ability, Mathematics, Science and Social Sciences. In an interview, the three top rankers discuss how the examinations helped them gear up for future challenges. Read on:

Pratyaksh Chauhan prepared for the exams in a month and aced it. He revised Social Sciences thoroughly. A few History chapters and formulae of math were his focus for consistent revision. “I want to take the Physics Chemistry Maths combination going forward, and I aspire to become an engineer, like my father,” he says. “The examination helped me judge my capabilities for competitive papers, and achieving the first rank is a very happy moment for me,” he adds. 

As the papers follow a multiple choice question-answer format, says Bhavya Tiwari , they have been very helpful for her to ace concepts of mental ability. “Along with this, for each subject, questions and concepts are asked from previous years as well, so one needs to prepare accordingly for it. Acing such papers is a combination of hard work and smart study,” he elaborates.His tip for students appearing for similar examinations, is not to ignore any subjects since each one has an equal weightage. “Time your paper and be patient with your practice. Work on the easy questions first and then give time to the hard questions,” is his advice.

To prepare for mathematics, Tiwari suggests studying from RD Sharma’s guide. For Social Sciences, he studied the NCERT book thoroughly and for acing Mental Ability, he referred to the book: MAT in 30 Days. When asked about his ambition, he says, “I want to become a computer science engineer in future, and am aiming to do a course from IIT Bombay.”

Arpit Sinha has been securing the first rank in the ATSE examinations for the last three years in the school. He says, “The papers have helped me prepare for JEE Advanced. I will be sitting for JEE entrances in the coming year 2022, and my aim is to get into an IIT college.” Motivated to become an IAS officer to work towards upliftment of people in rural areas, Sinha says, “The school has taught me values that I can carry forward in my life and career. I am thankful to all the teachers who have been guiding and encouraging me, and have helped build my self-confidence.”  

“These results are an affirmation of the school’s undying commitment to academic excellence and innovative instructional practices. It is a collective achievement made possible by the hard work of our illustrious students, diligent faculty and ever-supportive parents”.
