Careers360: What was your reaction upon knowing your rank?
Himanshu Gaurav Singh: Happy but I did expect it a bit. Before the JEE Advanced 2019 result was announced, a lot of analysis was done by my teachers, so I was expecting a rank in the top 3.
Careers360: Which school did you study in?
Himanshu Gaurav Singh: I did CBSE board from a school in my hometown, Gorakhpur.
Careers360: Why did you want to study engineering?
Himanshu Gaurav Singh: Since childhood, I have been interested in Mathematics and that automatically led to an interest in Physics, Chemistry, and other branches of Science. So maybe opting for engineering is an extension of that.
Careers360: How was your JEE advanced preparation different from JEE mains?
Himanshu Gaurav Singh: JEE Main has some big portions that are not that interesting to study. You need to use a bit of rote learning, not much but just a fraction. JEE advanced is much more interesting. You feel more joyful while studying. JEE Mains is just not that interesting, that is the difference.

Himanshu Gaurav Singh: I was consistent with my work and ensured that my results are also consistent with my hard work.
Careers360: Did you take any mock tests or use any sample papers?

Careers360: Are there any special books that you feel have helped with your JEE Advanced preparation?
Himanshu Gaurav Singh: No, I think FIITJEE material that we were given was quite sufficient.
Careers360: What do you have to say about the online computer examinations?
Himanshu Gaurav Singh: It is quite nice. As long as the computers do not develop a problem anywhere then it is quite better than the paper-pen mode because you get to change your options and it's more student-friendly than the previous one.
Careers360: What do you think are the key factors behind your hard work?
Himanshu Gaurav Singh: Consistency, and the support of my parents and teachers.
Careers360: What advice would you give to the future aspirants?

I passed 12 th in 2019, can I pass 12 th in again 2022 and sit in jee advanced
If you want to study class 11th and 12th again and if you have already passed once then you will have to do it from a different board and probably a state board.I believe this is not a good option because this will waste your 2 years. Instead you should give improvement exam and and enhance your marks.
Again the decision is yours, take wisely.

people say that jee advance have 2 attempts i passed 12 in 2020 and i am giving jee main in 2021 if i pass jee main then how much attempts can i give jee advance
One can attempt jee mains from three consecutive yeats and these years are counted from the time you were in class 12th and for jee advanced there are only two attempts starting in the same year in which you appeared for your boards. Therefore you were eligible for jee mains 2020 and will be eligible for all the sessions of jee mains 2021 and 2022. And for jee advanced you were eligible for jee advanced 2020 and will be eligible for jee advanced 2021. There you just have one attempt for jee advanced.

i had already applied to jee mains 2021 in general category but my caste is Bc-e in caste certificate which percentage i got to select for jee advanced
Since you have filled your category as a general candidate therefore you will be considered a general student and you need to score marks in jee mains according to the general cut off to qualify for jee advanced. According to the previous year cut off a general candidate had to score at least 81 percentile to qualify jee mains and be eligible for jee advanced, however it was 49 for OBC-NCL, 32 for SC, 27 for ST, and 1 for PWD for the year 2020. Although the cut off may vary from year to year as it depends on various parameters like number of students attempting the examination, difficulty of paper, etc.
I HAVE DONE CLASS 10 IN YEAR 2017 FROM CBSE BOARD & APPEARING IN CLASS 12 FROM NIOS BOARD IN YEAR 2021 . As there is a year gap between class 10 & class 12. so I want to ask that can i fill jee advanced form and take admmission in IIT( as year gaps in class 10 &12) provided i clear advanced both ???
For appearing in criteria in jee 2021 it doesn't see that whether you have gap between your 10th and 12th std.
One of the major criteria for appearing in jee advanced is you should pass your 12th by 2021,2022 and 2023 .
Recently, education minister has waived off the 75% criteria for this year also.
