11 students of Aakash BYJU’S in Goa have made the institute and the city proud by scoring an
impressive 95 percentile and above in the first session of the JEE Mains 2022
Examination. The results were announced by the National Testing Agency yesterday. This was the first out of the two Joint entrance exams for Engineering scheduled to be held this year.
The top scorers are SHREYA RAMCHANDANI with 98.2944204, ARYAN DESAI 98.2315535, Denham Fernandes 97.8766289, Aastha Anand Margaj 97.8697986, Dwayne Pereira neto 97.3054359, Aryan Prajapati 97.2673897, Sohil Mario Menezes 97.1540266, ATHARVA KASTURE 96.982344, Joywin Damacio Colaco 96.655742, Barnamoy Roy 95.82556 and, Aditya Sharma 95.3485829.
The students joined Aakash BYJU’S in a two-year classroom programme to crack IIT JEE, considered the world’s toughest entrance exam. They attributed their entry into the elite list of top percentiles in JEE to their efforts in understanding the concepts, and their strict adherence to their learning schedule. “We are grateful that Aakash BYJU’S has helped us with both. But for the content and coaching from the institute, We would not have grasped many concepts in different subjects in a short period of time,” they said.
Congratulating the students, Mr. Aakash Chaudhry, Managing Director, Aakash BYJU’S, said, “We congratulate all the students for their exemplary feat. Around 9 lakh students registered for the first session of JEE Main 2022 from across the country. Their top percentile score speaks volumes of their hard work and dedication as well as the support of their parents. We wish them all the best with their future endeavors.”
He added that during the pandemic-hit academic years, Aakash BYJU’S walked the extra mile to turn students into top percentile scorers in JEE. “We stepped up our digital presence to be always available for our students. We made study materials, and question banks accessible online. We conducted several virtual motivational sessions and seminars on exam preparation and time management skills. It is heartening to see our efforts paying off, as evident from the score sheets of our students, many of whom are well on their way to get admission in a top IIT or NIT or a central government’s engineering college to pursue higher studies of their choice.”
JEE (Main) is conducted in two sessions to give multiple opportunities for students to improve their scores. While JEE Advanced is only for admission to the Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs), JEE Main is for admission to several National Institute of Technologies (NITs) and other centre-aided engineering colleges in India. Students must appear for JEE Main to sit for JEE Advanced.
