Score:  590/600

Vishwajit is clear about the fact that being focussed on studies from the starting is what enabled him to score such high marks in his exams. “I concentrated on languages like English and Sanskrit during the last few months as that is where one tends to lose marks. Computer Science was also an area of focus and I also studied NCERT in depth.”

Adding that the gap in between exams ensured that the students were relaxed, Vishwajit advises the upcoming batches to remain concentrated on the studies from the beginning itself.His father Prakash Hegde says that he is satisfied with his son’s performance. “We knew he would do well. He was not tensed at all and this gave us confidence. He wrote his JEE Main exams and did well there also.”
