CAS Essay

The first and foremost CAS activity which comes in my mind, is my cas project, The Kabaddi tournament which I conducted in my school. It was led by me and two of my friends where we planned the project, invited participants, conducted an auction to make teams and finally executed our plan. The profits driven from this project were used in the donation. I felt this activity very impressive because it was the activity where we needed to had a full-proof plan to be successful. The fact that numerous participants participated in this event, making us earn huge profits reflected how well planned was our project. There were few difficulties which we faced, however holding weekly meetings among three of us and coming up with instant solutions helped us to solve those hurdles. This is something which made me a good communicator. Moreover, all these elements have improved my management and leadership skills drastically and that is what made this activity one of my best CAS experience.

I have learned numerous things from the component of CAS such as football sport with the help of activities such as football camps and football classes. I also learned a new skill of planting saplings in a huge land. This helped me to associate the activity of plantation with the learner profile, caring. Activities such as Lit fest (anagrams) and lit fest (ads to add up) have contributed to my cognitive thinking, helping me to become a knowledgeable person. I also brushed my skills of trekking and experienced the moments of cliff jump while I went to Naggar as my cas trip. The trip aided me in becoming risk-taker.

I developed skills of being patient, perseverant, committed as well as consistency from all of the CAS activities. I came out of my comfort zone in various activities, helping me to push my limits further. I learned a lot about myself and the skills I possess via the activities I did as my CAS component. More than that, while doing gymming and holding kabaddi tournament I learned more about others and their perspectives. Their opinions and ideas were something which aided me to look things differently which greatly affected the way I took decisions in all of my CAS activities. This has helped me to develop the skill of teamwork and coordination as well.

The most difficult learning outcome to achieve was the third one, initiate and plan a cas experience. Planning is something which I like very much, however executing the same is very difficult. I faced difficulties in my cas project where I had to achieve LO 3. Executing kabaddi tournament in the way it was planned by three of us, was very tricky but solving those hurdles was something which made this activity a successful one.

I think learning leadership, management, and teamwork skills from CAS activities will help me further in my life especially while I am doing projects in BBA course as well as while I am doing business. Coordinating and controlling people appropriately in business will make their life better and will help my business to prosper.



I am Anay Sanghvi and I am 16 years old. I am currently in the second year of IBDP, studying in Fountainhead school, Surat.

I believe that I am talented in quick calculations and fluent Hindi reading which I think has vastly helped me in Math and Hindi subject since many years. Determination and approaching work with a lot of planning have very much developed in me since the past two years. These two qualities have equipped me to coordinate better with my work schedule. These have also aided me in to conduct a better time management allowing me to take out a lot of free time from the busy schedule derived due to IBDP. I think I also possess a talent of leading a group of people in a very strategically way towards a vision, especially in sports. Making strategies and plans to counter various hurdles which can mislead us, as a group, is very much into me. These have helped me to gain a lot of leadership skills as far as sports is concerned.

The things I enjoy doing is to solve riddles and tricky mathematics sums, to stay engaged in one or more sports such as cricket and football, and I also love listening and singing songs. Playing football and listening songs are two important hobbies which I do almost every 5-6 days a week. It provides me with a lot of energy and refreshment.

There are various skills which I want to acquire so that I can gain a lot of excellence in a maximum number of fields. The first thing I want to learn is to have better management skills so that I can coordinate people and the work in a very effective manner irrespective of what the event/activity is. I also want to acquire a good command over the English language so that I can communicate my ideas in a much better and effective way. I want to have an exposure of an outer world by being involved in internships, conducting major events, attending summer schools letting me gain fruitful experiences. I would also like to have an exposure of something which is very alien to me and something from which I am uncomfortable with. This will help me to extend my limits of working in unfavorable conditions. 

My outlook towards my life is to maximize my excellence in the field I am passionate about. I want to enjoy my life by doing what I like especially the work in which I am involved. I would also like to optimize the happiness I can generate by my actions over others whom I interact with on a regular basis.

The most important issue present in the society, which agitates me is poverty and gender inequality.

Even though I have pursued commerce, I would also like to learn some topics of sciences which will help to expand my knowledge and not let it be restricted. Subjects like TOK have vastly helped me to critically examine the knowledge I acquire and studying more about it is something I want.
