Aryaman Angurman brought laurels to Ludhiana district by bagging all-India rank (AIR) of 197 in the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) Main 2022 results which were announced by National Testing Agency (NTA) on Monday morning.

Aryaman is a resident of Salem Tabri and completed his schooling from Kundan Vidya Mandir, Civil Lines. He secured 99.98 percentile and now wants to pursue BSc in Physics from Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore. He wants to conduct research in robotics.

He had scored 99 percentile in the first attempt. “I worked much harder this time as I was a bit casual in the first attempt. I attribute my success to a proper schedule, consistency and dedication. I never missed classes and was regular with my studies. I like to sing and listen to good music in my leisure time,” he added.

While his father Charan Dass runs a hosiery business in Ludhiana, his mother Neelam Devi is a teacher at a government middle school in the city. “Aryaman always had a clear vision of becoming a scientist and carrying out research in robotics. We never imposed our will on him and he was always a very focused student,” said Devi.

Meanwhile, Keshav Rai secured an AIR of 854. He had topped the district in his previous attempt with 99.913 percentile and got 99.83 percentile this time.

Rai is currently preparing for JEE (Advanced) on August 28 and eyeing a seat in the computer science engineering (CSE) branch IIT Bombay. He completed his schooling from BCM Arya Model Senior Secondary School in Shastri Nagar.

Rai said preparing for his CBSE Class 12 exams helped him get well versed with the JEE Main syllabus too. “I studied for around eight hours a day and credit my success to my teachers, in whom I have blind faith.I used to play table tennis to relax,” said Rai.

His father Dr Azad Rai is a homeopathy medical officer in the Punjab health department and mother Geetika Rai is an ayurvedic doctor. “He is preparing really hard for JEE (Advanced) exam and is focused on securing a seat in IIT Bombay. We are proud parents today and I am sure he will achieve his target,” said Dr Azad Rai.

While only Aryaman and Keshav secured positions in top 1,000 from Ludhiana; five of them came in the top 2,000.

Yatin secured an AIR of 1,032; Chirag, 1,071; Sahil, 1,256; Trashit, 1,292 and Bhuvnesh, 1,742.

Only those eligible as per the cut off set by NTA will now be able to take the JEE (Advanced) exam for which registration commenced on Monday.

While JEE (Main) results help students get seats in numerous engineering courses including National Institutes of Technology (NITs), Indian Institute of Information Technology and other centrally-funded technical colleges, JEE (Advanced) is conducted for admissions to Indian Institutes of Technologies (IITs).
