Chandigarh, May 18
The month of May has been exceptionally good for Haryana, academically speaking. If on May 4, Shena Aggarwal of Yamunanagar topped the civil service examination, today Arpit Aggarwal of Faridabad stood first in the IIT joint entrance examination (IIT-JEE).

After the result was declared this morning, Arpit said although he was optimistic of clearing the exam with high grades, he was not expecting to top it. He, however, said the score of 385/401 did not surprise him.

The number two slot in the IIT-JEE results was also bagged by the region. Bijoy Kochar of Mohali stood second in the national ranking. He was closely followed by Anant Gupta of Rajpura, who has stood seventh.

Interestingly the parents of both Bijoy and Anant are doctors who whole-heartedly supported their sonsí departure from stethoscopes.

Adding to the cheer are three other students from Chandigarh Viplov Jain, Shivam Garg and Param Deep Singh who made it to top 100 by securing 26, 66 and 68th rank, respectively.

What, however, mark the entry of city on IIT scenario with a bang are 150 reported selections so far.
