Disclosing his mantra for success, he said “frequent tests of full syllabus before the exams helped him in revision and I did not lose confidence. I’ve been staying in a hostel here for the past three years, and whenever I would stress out, I would run to the nearest multiplex to get relaxed.

“I like watching movies. I’m not internet-savvy and stay away from social media. I avoid using the smart phone. Apart from this, I used to play badminton in the hostel. I study for at least eight hours a day,” he said.
