The Edupreneur was here on the occasion of 150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi.
The questions ranged from handling classroom pressure to score more marks, and how to crack various competitive exams such as UPSC, AIEEE, NDA, JEE, NEET and others. Dr Sahoo patiently heard the kids out and tried answering them fairly.
Answering to a question raised by Sai Smruti of Ranibhol OAV on “How to score more than 90 per cent,” Dr. Sahoo shared the essential yet simple guru mantra. He said, “Study three subjects daily for two hours each. This will form a cycle where you will study each subject every alternate day; thereby visiting all the subjects.” He said adopting this mantra will surely result in a higher percentage.
Another student asked Dr Sahoo on what needs to done to become like him. Overwhelmed, the founder of SAI International Education Group, asked the student to work hard and follow his passion.
