Chandigarh, September 15

Guramrit Singh, a resident of Sector 74, Mohali, and student of Bhavan Vidyalaya, Sector 27, Chandigarh, has topped the country by securing 100 percentile in the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE-Main). The result was announced by the National Testing Agency (NTA). He is among 18 students to have secured the top rank. In March this year as well, Guramrit had become the national topper by securing 100 percentile in the JEE-Main.

He drew inspiration to excel from his father Gurudarshan Singh, a businessman. “My father has worked hard to raise us. He used to drop me at school ever since I was a student. I wanted to fulfil his dreams,” he said.

The topper said he studied for seven hours a day and played games for two hours every day. Currently, he is preparing for the JEE (Advanced). He aspires to get admission to the IIT, Bombay, and pursue a career in software engineering. The only mantra to crack the JEE, according to him, is to get hold of the NCERT syllabus and listen to teachers. “Keep your concepts clear and revise daily. Also, attempt previous years question papers to get more clarity on the exam structure,” he added.

On the basis of the JEE-Main, 2021 result, the top 2.5 lakh candidates have been termed eligible for the JEE (Advanced), scheduled for October 3. Online registration for the qualified candidates will begin on September 11 at jeeadv.ac.in.

Besides, city boys Pratham Garg bagged all-India rank 8 and Chaitanya Aggarwal AIR 62. They are students of Sri Chaitanya Institute.
