Rohan Sachdev, a middle-class student at Pishorilal Chamandas College, decides to go to St. Teresa’s High School, a college for the affluent and talented, after his childhood sweetheart, Mridula Chawla, transfers there. He gets a scholarship in the college. Mridula, now going by the name Mia, initially avoids Rohan in a desperate attempt to become popular, but the two begin a relationship when Rohan wins the college over by showing his sports skills.
Rohan becomes friends with Manav Singh Randhawa, a popular, affluent, student and reigning Student of the Year. However, he is at odds with Manav’s sister Shreya, a popular mean girl whom both detest each other and she often plays pranks on him. She tricks his Pishorilal friends into showing up at Manav’s birthday party, where they are insulted, causing a rift between them and Rohan. After one of her pranks gets her in trouble with her aloof father, Sukesh, Rohan tries to make peace with Shreya, but she refuses saying she doesn’t need his sympathy.
Rohan-Mia and Manav-Shreya are coupled up in an upcoming dance competition where Mia wants to win in order to gain popularity whilst Shreya wants to fulfill her dream of enrolling at a dance academy in London. Manav and Shreya win the contest after Mia falters during a step. When Rohan goes to console Mia, he instead finds her getting intimate with Manav, and realizes that Manav, knowing Mia had a crush on him, had planted her to spoil Rohan’s performance since he saw him as a threat to his image. Rohan is expelled from St. Teresa’s after punching Manav, and is subsequently beaten up by Manav’s friends before being thrown out. Initially dejected and struggling to deal with what he sees as Mia’s betrayal, Rohan eventually fights back and challenges Manav saying he, not Manav, will be winning the Student of the Year trophy.

Shreya, who is impressed by Rohan’s sincerity, reveals to his friends that she set them up, and also convinces Rohan to join her in a national dance competition, hoping she can study at dance school in London.

When Mia asks her about her love for Rohan, Shreya calls it a schoolgirl crush and, blessing them with happiness, leaves. Rohan leaves Mia’s hand and follows Shreya asking her if she is fine.
