He is also the president of the English Club and Handball Club.

His mother Sunit Kaur Sandhu is a teacher.

Sukhmeetjit scored 10As with the Punjabi language being one of them. Beyond studies, he is the the runner-up for the Hulu Langat district chess championship.

His twin sister Gurpreetjit Kaur, a school debate champion, scored 6As in the same examination. She was also involved in the school team which emerged as state-level runner-up in the Bicara Berirama (coral speaking) competition.

His father DSP Ajit Singh Khalae Dial Singh is a police officer while his mother Harjindar Kaur Badal Singh is a teacher.
