As many as 23 male students across India scored a perfect 100 in the first session of JEE Main results announced by the National Testing Agency on Tuesday, with the highest from Telangana.
Among the 23, seven are from Telangana, three each from Andhra Pradesh, Rajasthan, Maharashtra, two each from Delhi and Haryana, one each from Tamil Nadu, Gujarat and Karnataka. In 2023, 20 students were on the list of perfect scorers in the first session.
According to the merit list, while no female student featured in the top scores list, Dwija Dharmeshkumar Patel from Gujarat bagged the top spot among girls with a score of 99.99.
With the first session results out, students have a chance to improve their scores in the second session of JEE Main to be held from April 4-15. The NTA will announce the ranks by taking into consideration the best of the two NTA scores.
In the first session from January 27 to February 1, 2024, a total of 11.7 lakh students took the exam, an uptick from last year’s 7.69 lakh. Over the past five years, the first session of JEE Main 2024 saw the highest registration of 12.2 lakh students up from 8.72 in 2023. Rishi Shekhar Shukla, one of the seven toppers from Telangana and son of ISRO scientists, told The Indian Express he was “sure about the result”. Shukla, who is aiming for a seat in IIT Bombay and enrol in its computer science programme, wants to pursue a career in research and innovation.
About his preparations, Shukla said, “I have always given three hours to each subject.” As he was against studying through the night, Shukla, who prepared for two years, said he used to study at least nine hours in the day. Tanish Reddy, a topper from Andhra Pradesh, said he has been preparing since Class 8 and studied 13 to 14 hours a day. “I used to spend two days preparing and two days for tests. I spent a lot of time solving previous years’ question papers. In the test, many questions were very similar to the ones in the previous years’ papers,” said Reddy.
Reddy’s parents — Sreenivasa Reddy and Ganga Maha Devi — are both teachers. “Whenever my marks were low, they always encouraged me to look ahead and not worry about it.” He also wants to study computer science at IIT Bombay. Tamil Nadu’s Aradhana R scored 99.99 to become the topper in the Scheduled Caste category while Telangana’s Jagannadham Mohith with 99.99 topped in the Scheduled Tribe category. Shaik Suraj from Andhra Pradesh, Mukunth Prathish S from Tamil Nadu, Gajare Nilkrishna Nirmalkumar from Maharashtra and Himanshu Thalor from Rajasthan were toppers in the Other Backward Classes category with a perfect score of 100.
