Around 12 lakh aspirants who appeared for the Joint Entrance Exam (JEE) Main this month will know their results on Wednesday.

Many anxious students have an idea of how they performed, as they have matched their answers with the key released by the Central Board for Secondary Education (CBSE) recently.

“I have solved the question paper at least 10 times and will do so again before my result is out. It will give me confidence,” said Akshita Bhatt, student said.

Ahead of the results, students are trying different ways to beat their stress. Gaurav, a student of City Montessori School, Lucknow, went to Hanuman temple on Tuesday morning. “Morning prayers helped me ease my nerve. Such is the pressure that I did not even match answers with the key that was uploaded on the site. I’m keeping my fingers crossed.”

Niladri, a student of La Martiniere College in Lucknow is also tense. “I kept on sleeping till Tuesday afternoon to keep away from tension. I have done well but am not sure that I will qualify for the Advance test which is the next level for the exam,” he said.

Some like Aastha Gaur, a resident of Yamuna Colony in Dehradun, have opted to forego all holiday fun and prepare for JEE Advanced to be held on May 22.

Expecting a high score, Aastha dropped one year to prepare for the exam. “I am nervous but confident for JEE Main results,” she told HT.

Like Aastha, many other students who appeared in the JEE (Main) are gearing up for the ‘advanced’ examination, aiming to get through in one of the IITs in the country. “I want to pursue engineering from IIT and so I have started preparing for JEE Advanced,” Abu Sharique, a student said.

Others however, have kept their fingers crossed for the results on Wednesday. “My future course of action will depend on the percentage I score in my Mains,” said Rishabh, another student.

JEE (Main) exam is held to shortlist candidates seeking admissions to undergraduate engineering programmes at NITs, IIITs and other centrally funded technical Institutions.
