Around 10.20 lakh students in the country are waiting with bated breath for the results of the joint entrance examination (JEE) Main which are likely to be declared on Thursday. Out of this figure, 40000-to-50000 aspirants are from different coaching institutes of Kota.
Aspirants in the coaching capital of the country are anxious ahead of the results in which All India Ranks (AIR) would be declared along with JEE Main results for the first time.

Vaibhav Dubey (18), who appeared for the JEE Main 2017 is expecting around 159 marks out of the maximum 360 marks after analysing the answer key. But even then he is anxious about the results.
“Although I more or less know about my result after tallying my score with answer key but results are results, so anxiety is there”, he said.
Another aspirant, Saurabh Singh (18) from Korba (Chattisgarh), who is enrolled with a coaching institute of Kota, says he is expecting 180 marks out of 360.
He added that although the cut off marks is likely to be around 100 marks this time so he is expects to easily qualify for the JEE Advanced 2017.
His twin brother Gaurav who also sat for the JEE Mains 2017 admits an adrenaline rush before the results. “I am likely to qualify by scoring around 140-to-150 marks but I am excited since All India Ranks (AIR) would be issued along with JEE Main results for the first time”, he said.
Earlier, the JEE Main rankings were announced some days after the announcement of the JEE Advanced results.
Gaurav welcomed the move of not adding the weightage of Class 12 marks with JEE Main score as was earlier done for JEE Main rankings.
Coaching institutes of Kota known for their impressive show in JEE Main in the past are also expecting good performance this time too.
Naveen Maheshwari, director of Allen Career Institute, Kota, said their students had prepared round the year for the JEE Main 2017 and he was hopeful of a good performance.
