Swabhiman excelled in his 10th standard by scoring 90%. He came across IDIA through the sensitization conducted by IDIA volunteers at the Fergusson College, Pune where he was studying. He was selected as an IDIA Trainee after qualifying in the IDIA National Aptitude Test and the interviews conducted by IDIA. Never the one to pass opportunities, he gave his best to get into the IDIA program with the hopes of achieving his dreams.
Strongly determined to become a lawyer, he wishes to work towards fighting injustice, and towards the betterment of society. He was motivated by reading about the great lawyers of India and the differences they made in society.
Swabhiman was very diligent with his preparation for the law entrance exams. From reading newspapers every day without fail to solving more than 80 mock tests, he left no stone unturned. As an IDIA Trainee, he was a dedicated, punctual, and curious student who would give his best in everything. We helped him by training him rigorously through lectures, mocks, and tests, and by clearing all his doubts, analysing his mocks, and revising the syllabus with him.
