Bihar – CBSE zonal science topper of Bihar and Jharkand, Maryam Raza Khan said she never used Facebook and Instagram, however she used to watch YouTube videos to strengthen her academic subjects.
Khan who scored 97.8% said, “I don’t have Facebook and Instagram accounts, but I use Whatsapp. I used to see YouTube videos related to academic topics, which helped me strengthen my foundation.”
“In this competitive academic environment, one needs to plan studies in a proper manner. The NCERT books helped me build a solid foundation. I used to take eight hours of sleep and regular breaks between the study hours, which boosted my productivity,” Maryam added.
She expressed her gratitude to her parents who are educationists for supporting her through her studies, “They never pressurized me to study”, she added.
Currently, Khan plans to crack JEE Mains after preforming well in JEE Advanced, for which she is taking engineering coaching and aspires to opt for architecture or computer science.
