The results of Common Admission Test (CAT) are out. Chhavi Gupta from Delhi has cracked it by scoring 100 percentile. What makes this 24-year-old’s feat more special is the fact that she cracked the exam in her first attempt and was also working as a business analyst in a technology and analytics firm.
This Paharganj resident completed her dual B.Tech and M.Tech degree in Biotechnology from IIT Delhi. She aspires to get into IIM Ahmedabad or Calcutta. She believes that it is the societal mindset and not the girls’ calibre that thwarts them from scoring 100 percentile.
“If boys are studying, and I have seen this among some of my distant relatives, they will not disturb them. But a girl would still be asked to help out with household chores. Two, the priorities for many parents is to get the daughter married off after her graduation and so not many women really attempt the postgraduate level entrance exams… Thankfully, I had a family that supported me 100%,” – Chhavi.
