“Mathematics is my most favourite subject and I intend to be a computer engineer. In the JEE Main 2021 February session, I scored 99.88 percentile but I was not satisfied with the score. I made two more attempts and scored 99.99 but finally managed to achieve 100 marks. I was confident of it,” he said.
