Careers360: Congratulations for your outstanding performance in TS EAMCET! What was your reaction upon knowing your rank?\

Sanikommu Madhan Mohan Reddy: Actually TS EAMCET result 2018 was released a day before the JEE Advanced 2018 exam was to be held. When the TS EAMCET result was announced, I was talking to my physics lecturer. I was not thinking much about my rank. In AP EAMCET 2018, I was expecting a rank below 10. However, I secured 14th rank. I was extremely disappointed. When I got the news that I had got 5th rank in TS EAMCET 2018, I was very happy.

Careers360: Tell us something about yourself. Which board have you studied under? Which school have you studied in?

Sanikommu Madhan Mohan Reddy: I completed my schooling from Kennedy English Medium affiliated to CBSE board. I enrolled for IIT-JEE coaching when I was in class eight. I have been taking coaching since then.


Careers360: What is your score in TS EAMCET? What is your all state rank and category rank?

Sanikommu Madhan Mohan Reddy: My combined score is 94.763 while my TS EAMCET marks are 148. 93. I secured the fifth rank in the exam and I belong to general category.


Careers360: Did you also appear for AP EAMCET? What was your score and rank in AP EAMCET?

Sanikommu Madhan Mohan Reddy: Yes I did appear in AP EAMCET 2018 where I secured the 14th rank.


Careers360: Why do you want to study engineering? When did you decided to study engineering? Which branch would you be interested in? Which college do you wish to apply for? 

Sanikommu Madhan Mohan Reddy: It was my father's and grandfather’s wish that I should become an engineer. I am interested in CSE. I wish to join one of the leading IITs.


Careers360: When did you start your TS EAMCET preparation? Tell us something about your preparation strategy and daily routine for TS EAMCET?

Sanikommu Madhan Mohan Reddy: There was no separate preparation for TS EAMCET. A day before the exam, I was appearing for JEE Advanced mock test which was conducted by the coaching institute. My AP EAMCET preparation helped me score well in TS EAMCET 2018 as the topics are similar. The short notes which I prepared helped me to quickly revise the topics in which I was weak.


Careers360: Was there a difference in the preparation strategy in the last months of TS EAMCET considering that the board exams also are during this period? How did you manage preparation for both?

Sanikommu Madhan Mohan Reddy: It is important to get good marks in the board exams. I was completely involved in the preparation of my board exams as my JEE preparation had been going on for a long time.


Careers360: Did you take coaching for TS EAMCET and if yes from where? What are the benefits of coaching according to you?

Sanikommu Madhan Mohan Reddy: I took coaching for IIT JEE and this helped me in my preparation for TS EAMCET also. Coaching was of immense help to me as the guidance provided by my lecturers played a key role in my success


Careers360: The exam went online this year? What did you feel about it?

Sanikommu Madhan Mohan Reddy: I wrote a couple of online tests and there were no technical problems as such. However, on the day of the exam, there were technical problems and the mouse gave me problems as scroll button stopped working. The questions were quite lengthy. Since the paper was in two languages and we had to scroll up and down for each question, this resulted in wastage of our time. One more thing was that adequate rough sheets were not provided.


Careers360: Mock tests and sample papers – how extensively did you practice with the help of these? Do you think practicing from the previous year papers help and how?

Sanikommu Madhan Mohan Reddy: I merely solved a couple of TS EAMCET sample papers which were prepared by our institutions. I did not take the mock tests that were released by the exam conducting body. This year's paper was very different from the previous papers so practicing from these papers and expecting a paper on similar lines may have been disappointing.


Careers360: Are there any special books that you feel have helped with your TS EAMCET preparation? Are the school text books adequate for preparing for TS EAMCET and Class XII?

Sanikommu Madhan Mohan Reddy: The board books are adequate for preparation.


Careers360: How was the TS EAMCET exam different from JEE Main? How was AP EAMCET different from TS EAMCET?

Sanikommu Madhan Mohan Reddy: For both TS EAMCET and JEE Main I prepared from only NCERT text books which are good enough. One can study from the board books for both TS EAMCET and AP EAMCET and that would be more than sufficient.


Careers360: Did you face any problem during the TS EAMCET examination? Which subject was the easiest and which was the toughest? What do you think is a tough thing to manage during the exam?

Sanikommu Madhan Mohan Reddy: Yes, managing time was a difficult task. Maths paper was lengthy. It is common to panic when you have a lengthy paper and you aim to solve the whole paper on time. Panicking may result in incorrect answers for questions that may otherwise be easily answered. So that is a crucial thing to keep in mind.


Careers360: What do you think are the key factors behind your stupendous success in TS EAMCET?

Sanikommu Madhan Mohan Reddy: Correct time management, a quick presence of mind, helped me to perform well in the exam.


Careers360: How did you de-stress yourself during the preparation? What are your hobbies? How often could you pursue them?

Sanikommu Madhan Mohan Reddy: I used to talk to my Physics lecturer, who used to help me solve many of my problems. I did not take any stress as I love the subjects and like studying them. There were times when I used to sit in isolation and think about the ways to overcome and improve my weak areas so that I can perform well.


Careers360: Who is your ideal or biggest inspiration in life and why?

Sanikommu Madhan Mohan Reddy: My Physics lecturer Mr. Sreenu Baireddy is my inspiration. His strong interpersonal skills, knowledge, attitude inspires me a lot.


Careers360: You know you are an inspiration to thousands of students across the country. Do you have any message for future aspirants on tackling the TS EAMCET exam?

Sanikommu Madhan Mohan Reddy: Be yourself. Remember not to take excess stress on yourself as it only harms. Have faith in yourself and be confident. This is important to crack the exam with success.

Im a student of Telangana. I have an ews certificate , is there a need to produce an income certificate during the counciling of neet or the ts eamcet ?

Aditi Amrendra Student Expert 23rd Feb, 2020

See, technically if you have a valid EWS (economically weaker section) certificate then yo do not need to show a income certificate at the time of NEET counselling because EWS certificate itself is made by a valid income certificate.
But, EWS certificate is a proof that you family's annual income is less than 8,00,000.
Where as income certificate a separate proof of your family's annual income
So, you must have both the documents ready at the time of counselling.

I hope this helps.
