SRIRAM LAW ACADEMY interacted with ADITYA PARAMESWARAN who secured   All India 2nd Rank in IIT HSEE 2017.

Here’s the interview:

SLA: You have achieved a top rank in IIT HSEE 2017.  How does it feel?
Aditya: I feel very exhilarated. The fact is yet to fully sink in. I never once expected that I would achieve such a high rank, and that too in such a prestigious examination. 

SLA: What / Who inspired you to consider ‘humanities” as a career option?

Aditya: Ever since I started thinking about what path to choose after school, the subject has always stuck in my mind. The various subjects fascinate me. I wanted to follow my passion and become someone I wanted to be- a civil servant.

SLA:  Describe the role played by Sriram Academy in your success.

Aditya:  cannot describe in words how Sriram Academy has helped me in this endeavor. My number one reference for the exam was the course material sent by Sriram. The multiple mock tests and question papers helped me get an idea about the structure and type of questions to be expected. Also, they readily clarified all doubts. When the rubber hit the road, I was confident enough to face any question.

SLA: Given that the syllabus is very vast, how did you go about tackling the various areas?

Aditya: The examination covers a vast area of subjects. A background in humanities really helps one tackle vast subjects such as history and economics. That being said, anyone can tackle the examination if one covers the basics and keeps abreast of latest developments.

SLA: Essay writing is the key to success in this exam.  How did you hone your essay writing skills?
Aditya: Essay writing is fundamental to success in the exam.

Regularly writing essays on various subjects is the only way to tackle this. Sriram provides a list of essay topics to start with. By keeping an eye on the time limit and number of words, one can easily tackle this part.

SLA: Would you like to share some tips with our students who are gearing up for the 2017 examination?

Aditya: Practice makes perfect. Keep doing mocks and writing essays. Clarify whatever doubts you have as soon as possible. Don't get too worked up about the exam. Keep calm and do your best.
