Considering the vast syllabus and the innumerable challenges posed in front of her including the stress of the coronavirus pandemic, this is a massive achievement for the student of Navyug Radiance Senior Secondary School. 

Her subjects comprising of English, Sanskrit, History, Economics, Geography and Insurance,  Ms Jain in a statement to news agency ANI after her accomplishment said, "I prayed every day but also studied hard. I made notes for each subject and made sure that these notes were brief, so I could understand the lessons quicker and better,". 

Daughter to a shop owner father and a mother, who is a home-maker, Divyanshi stated that she made it a practice to consistently revise her subjects despite not focusing on the number of hours spent every day. Rather than mugging up and cramming the subjects, Ms Jain said she understood and carefully analyzed the study material and added, "Whatever I studied I revised to see how much I understood of the lessons,". She also stated that she learnt from the NCERT (National Council of Educational Research and Training) books than subject guides added, "I also focused on revision and mock tests that helped me to score better,".

Speaking about her plans for the future, she says, "In future, I would like to do research in history as a subject and learn more about our country's past.” Ms Jain also credited her parents and school teachers as the reason behind her success in the CBSE Class 12 public exams.
