But, the students thrived even in these dire conditions and passed with flying colours while living in relief camps. The schools and their respective family members are also proud of their achievements. Reportedly, Snehlata scored 492 marks out of 500 in her Class 12th examinations.
As per reports, Snehlata informed that the landslide took place in January when she was preparing for her examinations. She was worried if the schools would be open or not. She was also concerned about various other factors including being displaced. However, she claimed that even with so many doubts, everything turned out well.
The teachers were quite encouraging and the family too extended their support, which helped her in her achievements. She also revealed what her teachers asked the students to do to secure good marks in the examinations. She said that if they (students) wanted to score based on their merit, then they should stay away from mobile phones and social media.
