Hyderabad: Last year, first-year intermediate student Kakarla Vennela was in her hometown, a small village called Ramakrishnapuram in the Nandyal district of Andhra Pradesh, when online classes started due to the pandemic.

She would log in and get logged out of her classes due to poor internet connection in the area. But she held on, battled all the challenges, and became one of the state toppers in the intermediate exam results that were announced on 27 June.



Vennela, an MPC (Maths, Physics, Chemistry) student of Sri Chaitanya College, Ramanthapur, secured a total of 467 marks out of 470. "I had written my exam well. So, I was confident and expected the same marks. I am very happy," she said. Vennela says she used to attend all the lectures and sincerely followed what her lecturers asked the students to study.

Vennela's father K. Srinivasulu is a farmer and her mother is a housewife. Srinivasulu was excited on hearing of his daughter's results. "It was very unexpected and I am extremely happy," he said.

Vennela says her next goal is cracking the JEE Mains exam.

'I want to be like Sundar Pichai'

Everybody is happy at Madhulatha's home and proud of her as she scored 467 (out of 470) in her intermediate exams and is one of the state toppers. "I had expected above 465, and I am happy that I got it," says Y. Madhulatha, a first-year intermediate MPC (Maths, Physics, Chemistry) student of Sri Chaitanya College in Tarnaka.




Madhulatha says she used to study for a minimum of 3-4 hours every day. "We used to have classes from 8:30 in the morning till 5:30 in the evening. I used to study at the college and also after I came back home. When the exams came near, the study hours used to extend till late nights," she says.

Madhulatha's greatest inspiration, she says, is Google CEO Sundar Pichai. "I first happened to come across him when I was in the 6th or 7th standard on the mobile phone and thereafter from school discussions. I was so moved by his hard work and how he managed to reach great heights. I want to become like him," she says.

'Getting into IIT is my biggest dream'

P. Srivardhan Sharma secured a total of 992 marks out of 1,000 in the second-year intermediate exams to become one of the state toppers. He is a student of Sri Chaitanya College in Hyderabad.

Srivardhan says he used to study regularly, especially a month before the intermediate exams. "I used to follow all the classes online and get my doubts cleared from my teachers," he says. He was confident of scoring good marks after writing the exams.




"Reading the textbook thoroughly and referring to previous years' question papers is important when it comes to intermediate exam preparation," says Srivardhan.

He is currently preparing for the ongoing JEE Mains exam.
