My name is Medha Aggarwal. I did my 10+2 from Cambrian Hall with 93%. After 10+2 I was selected for BSc Chemistry Honours program at Doon University in 2018.From the state of Uttarakhand I'm the only student who has been successful to get admission in Indian Institute of Sciences Bangalore in integrated PhD program. Before completion of my BSc honours at Doon University, I qualified JAM as well as GATE and my JAM rank was 241. I give the complete credit of my unbelievable performance and success to department of Chemistry of Doon University. Whenever, I rationalise the reasons of my success I find that in addition to my hard work and dedication, the experience and orientation of my professors of Chemistry Department (Doon University) was one among the main factor.

As the faculty members of Department of Chemistry are having international experience they know very well what kind of content will be beneficial for the student. During the teaching courses they provided assignments. At that time, we didn't knew that these assignments are based on the scheme on which the questions of competitive exams are also based. I found that such assignments are very unique. It is also a challenge to solve such assignments with the help of referring to many books, such an exercise helps us to understand the concepts and also improve our ability to solve the questions which are asked in the competitive examination. Our faculty members used to send the assignment on google classroom.

At the end, I would like to conclude by saying that these 3 years at Doon University had been a been a fun roller coaster ride. There are ups, there are downs but when you look back at these wonderful years they would have changed you completely, you would have outgrown yourself.

A special thanks to Dr.Arun Kumar, Dr.Charu Dwivedi, Dr. Subramanyam Garimalla, Dr. Som Dutt, Dr. Shiva Aggarwal, Dr. Sushil Kumar, Dr. Kapil Tomar, Dr. Shipra Nagar, Mrs. Kavita Kothari (Eminent humans and experienced professors in Department of Chemistry.)

My name is Sachin Rawat. I had been in the BSc. Hons program in the Department of Physics of Doon University from 2016 -2019. I qualified IIT JAM 2019 and JEST exam in 2019 and got selected in MSc. Ph.D. dual degree program at IIT Kanpur. All this was possible with the support and guidance of the faculty members of the Department of physics especially Dr. Himani Sharma, Dr. Vikas Sharma, Dr. Ajeet Maurya, and B.K. Yadav. I learned a lot and gained a lot of knowledge from them, which helps me in building my fundamentals and overall understanding of Physics. I had joined the Dual degree program at IIT Kanpur in 2019 and currently pursuing my Ph.D. from there. When I look back, I feel, that period was one of the best periods of my life which evolved me a lot and changed my life completely. The environment of the University is best for the overall development of a person. The library facility is one of the best facilities of Doon University.
