BENGALURU: Among the toppers in the CBSE exam, some are all-rounders who pursued some sport and didn’t stop playing because it was Class 10.
Nidhi Shekar, a student of Sri Kumaran Children’s Home, competed in swimming and middle-distance running at the state-level. And of course, she scored a perfect 10 CGPA. She is learning Hindustani vocal music and harmonium and is a part of the school magazine editorial team (SEEK). When asked how she manages to balance everything, Nidhi nonchalantly says, “I’ve learnt to handle it all for a few years now, so it’s not really that tough.”

Nidhi had to spare lesser time for other activities when the exams were around the corner, but not Prateek Gummaraju, who also got a perfect 10. Aspiring to become a cricketer, he said that he always gave equal importance to both studies and the sport.  He was part of the cricket team at the zonal level and will next participate in the state level tournaments.

Vinayak Prasad, a student of NPS, Rajajinagar, said he had to participate in many basketball tournaments. And it doesn’t seem to have affected his performance, considering he got a 10 CGPA score.
“I missed school for 15 days when I went to play a basketball tournament in Malaysia,” he said.
