For 18-year-old Parth Satish Laturia studying regularly was the key to his success as he grabbed the All India Rank 3 in JEE Main 2018 on Monday.
Parth scored 350 out of 360 marks with full 120 marks in mathematics and 115 each in physics and chemistry out of 120 as the results were announced by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) late in the evening.
“Making notes, revision of daily study work, getting doubts cleared from the faculty and regular interaction with teachers and my parents were the main reasons behind my success,” Parth, the son of doctor parents from Maharashtra’s Nanded, said while speaking to the Hindustan Times.
“I used to regularly revise every subject after the daily classes. Apart from the regular coaching, I used to devote five to six hours for studies. Every day, I had some subject wise targets that I used to complete,” he said.
“My friend Akash’s mother lived with us, which also helped us. My mother also used to visit me from time to time,” the student of Kota’s Allen Career Institute said.
Parth’s father Satish Laturia is a physician and his mother Seema Laturia is a paediatrician, who run their private hospital in Nanded.
He was always interested in the field of engineering even though both his parents are doctors.
“I have an inclination towards maths and like solving questions. Because of my interest, my parents asked me to prepare for engineering entrance exams,” he said.
His parents said the environment in Kota is different and students enrolled in the coaching centres in the city are also taught about basic human values along with their regular classes.
Talk to parents, teachers
Parth advised JEE aspirants to focus on their weak points to improve themselves and said they should always share their problems with their parents and teachers to keep their morale high.
“Here, I usually talk to my friends about studies and many questions were solved in simple discussions,” he said.
Parth, who led Kota in its winning streak in JEE Main 2018 once again, said students in the city known as the coaching capital of India are passionate about their goals and teachers teach them with equal passion.
Loves maths, plays sports
Parth said he likes to indulge himself in sports and plays chess, badminton and table tennis.
“I like to watch TV for a while, which usually includes news and movies. Earlier, I used to play cricket also. Besides this, I also do yoga,” he added.
Parth said he wants to pursue computer science at IIT-Powai and then decide his future course.
“I want to go in the research field. Apart from this, applied maths is also an option. I want to do further studies in subjects related to mathematics or computers. However, my full focus currently is on JEE Advanced,” he added.
JEE Advanced 2018 is for admission to Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) and other top engineering institutes. Only the top 220,000 candidates will be eligible for the computer-based JEE Advanced 2018, which will be held on May 20.
This is not the first time that a student of Kota-based coaching institute has performed well in JEE.
And last year, Kalpit Veerwal from the Udaipur branch of Resonance Eduventures Private Limited clinched the All India Rank 1 by scoring 100% marks and Vishwajit Aggarwal of the same institute bagged the fifth rank.
Coaching institutes in Kota claimed that 39,000 of their students cleared the JEE Main 2017 and at least 48 of them figured in AIR top 100.
