Bhubaneswar: Odisha boy Sourabh Soumyakanta Das scored 100 percentile in Joint Entrance Examination (JEE Main) and secured the top position in the state.
He scored 99.992 percentage in the JEE (Main) 2020. He was also the state topper in the JEE Main January 2020 exam. NTA declared the JEE Main 2020 results late on Friday night.
“I used to study for 3-4 hours separately for JEE main in addition to what I studied for my school syllabus. It does not matter how many hours we are studying. But what matters is studying with utmost concentration. We have to clear all our doubts in the schools or coaching centres and also solve previous years question papers as much as possible. As speed and accuracy matters in the exam, I used to practice a lot so that I can write the answers within the specified time,” Das was quoted as saying by Hindustan Times.
Das wants to pursue his B-Tech in computer science in the Indian Institutes of Technology (IIT) Mumbai. “If I get a good rank in JEE Advanced, I will choose IIT Bombay,” he said.
JEE Advanced for the admission to the IITs will be held on September 27. The top 2.5 lakh rank holders in JEE Main can apply for the JEE Advanced. The registration process for JEE Advanced began today.
