Akhil: I am from Kota, Rajasthan. I have studied under the CBSE board and the name of my school is Disha Delphi Public School, Kota.
Careers360: What is your percentile score in JEE Main 2020? What's your score in Physics, Maths and Chemistry?
Akhil: I scored 100 percentile in the exam. My percentile in Mathematics is also 100.
Careers360: Why do you want to study engineering? When did you decide to study engineering? Which branch would you be interested in? Any reason?
Akhil: I was interested in engineering from the very beginning. However, I wanted to become a scientist but gradually I gained more interest towards engineering. My Grandfather was also an Engineer so I got inspired by him also. Now, I aim to get admission in Computer Science Engineering in IIT Bombay.
Careers360: When did you start your JEE Main preparation? Tell us something about your preparation strategy and daily routine for JEE Main?
Akhil: I started my preparations for JEE Main 2020 from Class 9th. I joined Allen Kota institute for it. I used to study almost 12 hours including time spent in school and coaching. My daily routine includes rising up early in the morning to start the day early. Also, I take a break after every 1.30 hours during my studies. During this break, I listen to music or watch TV.
Careers360: Did you face any difficulties since the examination was conducted completely in computer based mode?
Akhil: No, I did not face any difficulty during the exam. I was aware that the exam is online and knew how to use a computer. Also, I got a feel for the real examination in my coaching. So, I was fully prepared for an online exam.
Careers360: Was there a difference in the preparation strategy in the last months of JEE Main considering that the board exams are also coming up? How did you manage preparation for both?
Akhil: I feel there was no difference between both the exams. I focussed on NCERT books during my preparations, so I was fully prepared for my board exam. For JEE Main, one needs to focus more as the paper involves more in-depth reading and analysing. So, basically I was focusing more on JEE Main. I found no difficulty in managing my preparations for both the exams as I focussed on NCERT books from the start.
Careers360: Did you take coaching for JEE Main and if yes from where? What are the benefits of coaching according to you?
Akhil: Yes, I joined Allen Kota Institute. Benefits of joining the institute is that you get to know your position among a large number of students in the institute. Also, my coaching provided me with a competitive environment. I was able to clear all my doubts with the help of the faculties of the coaching and we were provided study material as well. My coaching was also helpful for the revision of the JEE Main 2020 syllabus.
Careers360: Mock tests and sample papers – how extensively did you practise with the help of these? Do you think practising from the previous year papers help and how?
Akhil: Mock tests and sample papers help me a lot in boosting my confidence and by improving my time management skills. Practising mock tests daily has really helped me as I used to make silly mistakes in the beginning which was improved with the time. My coaching also conducted a mock test every sunday so JEE Main mock test helped me a lot during my preparations. Yes, students can have an overview about the paper by practising previous year papers.
Careers360: Are there any special books that you feel have helped with your JEE Main preparation? Are the school text books adequate for preparing for JEE Main and Class XII?
Akhil: No, I only focussed on NCERT books and modules provided by Allen institute.
Careers360: Did you face any problems during the JEE Main examination? Which subject was the easiest and which was the toughest in JEE Main? What do you think is a tough thing to manage during the JEE Main exam?
Akhil: No, I did not face any problem. However, all subjects were fine but I found Mathematics as the easiest subject and Chemistry a bit difficult. Actually, questions from Organic Chemistry were a bit tricky. It wasn’t tough to manage time during the exam. I completed the paper before time and also rechecked my answers.
Careers360: What do you think are the key factors behind your stupendous success in JEE Main?
Akhil: The key factors for my success were- Regular Studies and Clearing all the doubts on time. I never kept anything for later, I used to clear all my doubts whenever they arised or as early as possible. I devoted 4 hours daily after my school and coaching. I think these factors helped in achieving a 100 percentile score.
Careers360: Will you be appearing for the April session of JEE Main 2020 too?
Akhil: No, I will not appear for the April Session of JEE Main 2020.
Careers360: How did you de-stress yourself during the preparation? What are your hobbies? How often could you pursue them?
Akhil: I love music, so I used to listen to songs but after class 10th I decided to devote only 30 minutes to music. I also used to play Table-Tennis before class 10th. As JEE Main is a competitive exam and lakhs of students appear every year, I believe sacrificing some hobbies is worth it.
Careers360: Who is your ideal or biggest inspiration in life and why?
Akhil: My inspiration is my Grandfather.
