The Result Came As Surprise For Vibha
While talking to the media, Vibha said that she was surprised by her result. When asked what sacrifices did she make for achieving this success, Vibha Swaminathan said that she did not sacrifice much. But instead just focused on her studies.
Vibha said, ”I did not use Facebook, but I did use WhatsApp sometimes. I think you just need to prioritize, without sacrificing anything in particular.” She believes that although it is very necessary to give importance to studies, it does not necessarily mean giving up on social media as long as things are prioritized properly.
Vibha added, “I studied for nearly seven hours a day. It wasn’t about how many hours I put in, but what work I completed. So I didn’t really push myself.”
Vibha To Focus On CLAT
After achieving 100% success in the ISC exams, Vibha Swaminathan is now keen to crack the Common Law Admission Test (CLAT). It is the entrance test for getting admission to top law schools which is going to be held in the second half of this month.
Vibha is a voracious reader and is an excellent debater. Currently, she is also getting trained for Carnatic music. She loves dogs and is a volunteer for animal care. The topper is still very much overwhelmed and is yet to make a plan for celebrating her success. Vibha said, “Nothing, as of now because it’s still soon.”
