BENGALURU: During the first three months of college, Mohith S found it tough to even comprehend what his teachers taught. Coming from a small town of Chikkanayakanahalli in Tumakuru, his first exposure to city life threw a lot of challenges at him.Undaunted by the hurdles that came his way, Mohith, a student from Narayana PU College, went on to secure fifth rank in veterinary sciences.
“When I started attending college, I got nervous. It was a new place and I was staying away from my family,” he said.
“In my first three to four months, I was almost unable to grasp anything that my teachers explained. Chemistry was one subject I found tough. I did not give up.I requested them to give me more time. I followed what my teachers said and it helped me perform,” he said.
He attributes his success to the motivation his lecturers gave him.
His study routine was no less than four hours a day. He said that in his college priority was given to NEET preparations and this helped him score better.
He also stood fifth in the state in SSLC with 99 per cent and has scored 97 per cent in PU II.
His father works as a senior health inspector at the taluk hospital. “My father had to take a loan for my education. Staying in another city meant additional expenses. However, he never stopped me from studying what I wanted,” Mohith said. After this, he wants to prepare for civil service exams.
