Chess whiz L Bharat, who holds a FIDE rating of 2004, admits that he’s one of the kids who studied a chapter as soon as it was taught in class. A champ who has represented India at events organised by the Commonwealth and participated in State and national tournaments, he scored an impressive 96.8% in Class X.

“I always studied a new chapter the day it was taught in class. This way, I ensured that I did not face pressure due to missing classes,” he said. He bagged the gold medal at the first national school chess championship and silver at the U-15 Asian Open Chess Championship.
