City boy scores 100 pc in JEE-Main
Agrawal said that his CBSE schooling helped him to stay on the same pace with CBSE JEE syllabus.
PUNE: Seventeen-year-old Raj Aryan Agrawal from Pune is among the 15 students in the country to have secured 100 per cent in Joint Entrance Exam (JEE) Main 2019, which was held from January 8-12.
Ankit Mishra and Kartikey Gupta are the other two candidates from Maharashtra who share the top score in the list.
An elated Agrawal, a student of Pune Municipal Corporation’s Rajiv Gandhi Academy of E-Learning, Sahakar Nagar, said that consistency in studies helped him score well.
“From Std XI, I have maintained a regular schedule of 4-5 hours for studies. I focused a bit more on chemistry. Besides that, I practised taking the online mock test as per NTA guidance and at my coaching class also, I took online and written exams frequently,” said Agrawal who is preparing for Higher Secondary Certificate (HSC) to be held in mid-February.
“The online exam was conducted well. It wasn’t lengthy. It enabled us to mark few questions for revision, therefore, I could go back and review and recheck the given answers,” he said.
While, Agrawal who aims to pursue ‘Computer Science’ in graduation also pointed out that his schooling till Std X was as per Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE), which helped him to stay on the same pace with CBSE JEE syllabus.
“I only stopped playing the piano, which I would mostly play in my free time earlier,” added Agrawal.
Speaking about managing stress, Agrawal told Sakal Times, “Whenever I felt worked up and tired of studying, I would take a break for an hour or at times a day or two from studies. During this time, I used to watch TV, go for walks etc.”
