After the class 10 examination, I decided to pursue an engineering degree and I started preparation then.”

The journey to reach here was not an easy one as it required dedication and more hours. “I studied at least 10 to 11 hours a day to get this score. In JEE mains, I secured 123 ranks, and I started preparation for the JEE advanced examination by solving more and more practice papers. Apart from the study material I used to refer to several reference books provided by the education institute,” said Doshi, whose parents are both doctors.

I would like to focus on research work in artificial intelligence and machine learning,” said Patel. She was inspired by her engineer uncle and chose this career path.
