The race to be number one starts with pre-kindergarten these days, with interviews being held for play-school admissions. Right from that point to the pinnacle of student-life —entering college — it’s a mad rush to occupy coveted positions in quality institutions. A few are able to sail through this rush and some others give up unable to cope, but for most students who fall under that blanket term — average student — it is an endless stream of challenges and struggle and even innovation.

While most Class 10 students are experiencing nervous moments for being at the threshold of stepping into college life, Arjun Shetty is already securing his path for two years later. An aspiring engineering student, pre-university (PU) is much more than prep-time for him; so much so that despite months to go for the tenth board exams, he has already decided which college to join for Class 11.
We have prepared adequately well and are confident to take the Board examination. Encouragement and counselling from teachers and revision test has helped us a lot,” says Jayashree and Swarna, Plus Two students of a private school in Chennai. “My anxiety is growing. What if the paper is too tough or tricky this year and what if I do not get admission in a good college?” asks Sai Prabha, a Plus Two student from a city school. “I have done well in the half-yearly examination and we have two more revisions to take.
