Bathinda, August 8
Mrinal Garg (17) has once again brought laurels to the city and the state by bagging all-India rank (AIR) 5 after getting a perfect 300/300 score in the JEE-Mains Session 2 entrance exam, the results of which were declared today.
The top six candidates have got the perfect score but Mrinal was given the fifth rank as per the age criteria. Mrinal, however, has topped in the state.
Earlier in July, Mrinal, a student of Saint Kabir Convent Senior Secondary School, Bathinda, had secured the top rank in the JEE-Mains Session 1 exam by scoring a perfect 300/300 score.
Talking to The Tribune, Mrinal’s father Charanjit Garg said, “It is indeed a proud moment for us. Our son has once again secured a perfect score and bagged the fifth rank in the country. He wants to pursue higher education in the computer science field from IIT-Mumbai. He has been studious since childhood and has worked hard to get to the top position.”
Mrinal’s father runs a business of surgical equipment and his mother, Renu Bala, is a homemaker. Mrinal drew his inspiration for pursuing academics seriously from his elder brother Bhartesh Garg, who is a final-year MBBS student at AIIMS, Jodhpur.
