“I was definitely eyeing 100 percentile. But there’s no point in regretting over it. I am happy with my result and thankful to God. Pondering over it will not help my cause. I would try to achieve 100 percentile in my upcoming exams,” said Gokulnath, a student of Somerville School in Noida over the phone. He said he was looking forward to study computer sciences from one of the top IITs.

“I feel relieved and motivated to have scored well in JEE Main exam. Having worked really hard towards this goal, I was confident of scoring well. My results are solely attributed to the stupendous coaching mechanism employed at FIITJEE that brings out the best out of every student. The expert faculty works diligently on our concepts and better understanding to yet. I am retuning to my studies with renewed focus as I do not want to leave any stone unturned before the JEE Advanced,” said Gokulnath, who scored 99.4% in the CBSE class 10 exam 2018 and did well at Kishore Vaigyanik Protsahan Yojana 2018 where he secured an All India rank of 4 and emerged as the UP state topper in class 11.

“FIITJEE was the fruit of realization that the secondary education system in India was not good enough to train young minds towards deep conceptual pursuit of Science education. Even students who do well at school often fail to do well in competitive examinations because they lack in-depth conceptual understanding and analytical skills despite having a good IQ. The success of our students at JEE year after year bears testimony to the fact that our unique way of teaching has succeeded in bringing the best in students. We are very proud of the achievements of our students and teachers,” says Mr. Ramesh Batlish, Centre Head, FIITJEE Noida Centre.
