She chose to pursue humanities for her UG studies with maths, political science and economics as the combination as reported by The Indian Express reported.
“It is unbelievable. Though I was sure of getting 95 plus, more than 99 per cent is a dream come true for me. My paternal uncle, who shifted to Canada about six months back, used to motivate me often. Apart from this, my teachers used to guide me wherever I needed them. I did self-study as it is not easy to get a tuition teacher in a village. Also, I never felt the need for the same,” she added.
Taranpreet’s father who is a farmer owns around 16 acres of land. Talking about her result and performance, he said, “I had no idea what Taranpreet was studying, though I was always concerned she should get a good education. She is free to follow her dreams the way she likes.”
