Home Education in India – Sanjana Lakkineni
Sanjana Lakkineni has been extremely successful studying via home education in India. Recently Sanjana took her AS Level examinations with Wolsey Hall Oxford, following on from studying her IGCSEs via home learning.
Her outstanding achievements with Wolsey Hall to date include: IGCSE English – A; IGCSE History – A*; IGCSE Maths – A*; AS Level Psychology – A (and IGCSE French – A* and Economics – A with an Indian school). Moving forwards, Sanjana has found Wolsey Hall Oxford so beneficial that she will be taking her A Levels solely using our online system.
“I am Sanjana Lakkineni from India. I am currently doing my A Levels. I have chosen homeschooling, instead of regular schooling, because I have already decided on my future career – I want to be a Social Scientist – and I want to be able to focus on my area of interest without being distracted by the demands of the conventional school curriculum.
Homeschooling, supported by Wolsey Hall Oxford, also gives me the flexibility to pursue some of my other interests like reading, travelling and sports. I want to write and publish articles in magazines and journals. I have already made a documentary film and plan to make more films in the future.”
Home Education in India has allowed Sanjana the flexibility to use her time to undertake numerous projects. Here is a link to the documentary made by Sanjana: Mortgaged Nations.
Here is a link to the article showcasing the prestigious scholarship awarded to Sanjana by India’s leading newspaper – The Times of India.
“I am the national topper in the Times of India Scholarship test. You can find my photograph on the top portion of the 5th and 6th columns photographs. The ‘Times of India’ is going to sponsor my trip with the value of INR 200,000 to the Cornell University, USA, for an orientation course. I love visiting great universities whenever I travel abroad.”
“I am a sports buff – I love both playing and watching sports. I am an ardent fan of the Indian Cricket Team. The first thing I bought for myself using my scholarship money is an Indian Cricket Team jersey.”
“I am seeking admission to the Philosophy, Politics and Economics (PPE) undergraduate course at Oxford University.” Sanjana is using our University Advice Service for help with her application to Oxford University through UCAS.
The above choice of mine is not a career oriented one, because, the choices and life chances available to a youngster like me growing up in the impoverished, hunger afflicted Indian subcontinent are few. As Malala Yousafzai famously said, “In our part of the world, there are only two options available to a person – you can either suffer and die in silence or choose to speak up…”
We are very inspired by Sanjana’s desire to improve the stability of her own country, and her work ethic and drive are impressive to say the least! We will be supporting her along the way to ensure that she achieves her very laudable dreams.
If you too are following a home education in India, we’d love to hear from you!
