She attended a school where "everyone" scores above 90% and "atleast half of them" score above 95%. in 10th std exams.
She remembered that for years she and her friends have laughed at people who score less than this grade in her school.
So when she spoke about joining commerce stream and moving on to management studies, i knew that this girl is a superstar.
