Read on to know what they had to say about being among the selected few thousands who have managed to secure a seat at India’s top-notch tech institute.

AIR 1: Aman Bansal from Jaipur

Score: 320/372

“I am feeling good. I can’t believe that bagged AIR 1. I had studied very hard for this and thoroughly followed all the reference material given to me. I had also made a list of topics that I had revised so that I could check my progress. Whatever confusions I had, I cleared them by discussing with my friends.”

AIR: 2: Bhavesh Dhingra from Chandigarh

Score: 312/372

“I have had only two years of JEE coaching, unlike some of my friends who have been taking coaching for about four-five years. I haven’t thought so much about my future, but I just want to spend the next four years in IIT Bombay, balancing between study and extra-curricular activities. I am originally from Delhi, but I’d prefer to join IIT Bombay for the level of exposure it promises.”  

AIR 3: Kunal Goel from Jaipur

Score: 310/372

“My preparation was good. I was regular with modules and Daily Practice Papers (DPP). I used to mark the difficult and tricky questions, which served as my last two months’ revision material. My family’s support gave me confidence. I also revised topics from NCERT textbooks.”
