Jaswin Answers

1.Have you set any goals during your 10th or 12th?

Yes, I set a goal to learn subjects with interest and not just memorize. I set a goal to gain knowledge instead of gaining marks.

a) If yes, do you write down your goals? No

b) Were your goals your’s or your parents? They were my goals

2.What’s your insight on Hard work Vs Smart work?

Both are needed. However, if you have passion for learning, you needn’t categorize your work into “hard” or “smart”. It just becomes something that you do because you love doing it.

During the first few exams, I was a bit stressed, but as I wrote several repetitive revision exams,it went away. I was never afraid of exams though.
