Patiala boy Jayesh Singla is among the 15 candidates who have scored 100 percentile in the Joint Entrance Examination (Main) held earlier this month.

National Testing Agency (NTA) released the list of the top 15 today. 

Jayesh (18) has scored a 100 NTA score in Paper-I (BE /B.Tech). He is currently studying in Apollo Public School, Patiala, and completed his Class X from Yadavindra Public School.

He scored 97.4% in Class X and aspires to be a computer programmer. Jayesh has been preparing for the exam for two years in Chandigarh. 

Sharing his strategy for the exam, Jayesh said, "Give all subjects equal importance. As Chemistry syllabus is lengthy, I gave it more time. I used to study 5-6 hours a day."

His father Dr Ajay Singla is a paediatrician in Patiala and mother, Dr Monika, a gynaecologist.

"We are on cloud nine and can't express our joy. He is a very hard working boy. Physics has always been his favourite subject," said his parents.

Jayesh added, "Time management is important for the exam and for that, one must practice last years' papers. NCERT syllabus is very important for examination preparation so it advisable to study NCERT books thoroughly. While attempting the question paper, start with easy questions first."
