Meenal Parekh from Kota in Rajasthan is the topper among women. She ranked 6th, scoring 318 out of 360 in the examination.
An alumnus of Bhavan Vidyalaya in Panchkula, Pranav was on his way to Hyderabad with his family on Sunday after the results were declared.
He had scored 97.2% in the CBSE Class 12 exams in non-medical and had All India Rank 4 in the JEE Mains, scoring 350 out of 360 marks. He did his coaching from Sri Chaitanya Institute in Chandigarh.
An avid reader of Indian mythology, Pranav, son of business couple Pankaj Goyal and Mamta Goyal, said, “If you focus well, your study hours won’t really matter. So just stay focus, maintain balance and be calm. Have faith in your teachers and their guidance, and always ensure that your knowledge is conceptually sound.”
“Solving previous year papers helped me a lot in getting an insight into the pattern of the examination,” Pranav shared his success mantra. He used to study five hours every day and had devoted the entire year in studying for the JEE Advanced.
He said, “Clearing the JEE Advanced was the target, so I had studied for it throughout the year and prepared for the Mains, a month before the exam.
Rejoicing over Pranav’s success, his father said, “My son has always been a topper and has worked very hard for the past two years to achieve this rank. We are very happy with his performance.”
His mother said, “My son has proved that with hard work, anybody can reach the sky. I am really proud of Pranav.”
Pranav said he loves playing chess, watch television and spend time with his grandfather for relaxation. He used to watch cartoon and read books as a stress buster.
Sharing his future plans, he said, “My next aim is to take admission in IIT-Mumbai. After that, I will pursue MBA and go for entrepreneurship. My father is my inspiration, my role model. He has supported me throughout my career. Following him, I too want to be a successful entrepreneur.”
Pranav is a Kishore Vaigyanika Protsahan Yojana (KVPY) scholar, National Talent Search Examination (NTSE) scholar and had cleared the Indian National Mathematical Olympiad (INMO) with AIR 5 in Class 11. He had also cleared Indian National Physics, Astronomy and Chemistry Olympiads with AIR 2 in class 12.
His teachers too expressed happiness over the performance.
“In the initial months, Pranav used to struggle like any other kid. However, he eventually grasped the different aspects of learning Physics with his sound intuition,” said Amarnath Joshi, his Physics faculty.
Animesh Verma, his Chemistry professor at the institute, said, “Chemistry was one of his strongest subjects. He focused on all concepts of chemistry, rather than just memorising the reactions. His clear conceptual clarity helped him go a long way. He devoted at least one hour daily studying NCERT, especially for chemistry.”
Over 1,50,000 students across the country appeared for the first-ever completely computer-based Joint Entrance Examination Advanced (JEE-Advance) held on May 20.
As many as 1,55,091 appeared for the second paper.
The next step is the admission process for the IITs, Indian School of Mines, National Institutes of Technology. The allotment of seats is expected to start from June 27.
The final allotment for the seventh round will be announced on July 18.
