Eighteen-year-old Bhaskar Arun Gupta grabbed the All India Rank 7 in JEE Main 2018, the result of which was declared by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) on Monday.

Mumbai’s Bhaskar scored 345 marks out of 360 marks to clinch the top rank in JEE Main 2018.

Bhaskar said a fixed routine and studying ten to 11 hours every day helped him succeed in the tough exam conducted for admission to engineering colleges across the country.

“For good studies, it is important to be healthy and it is necessary to take good sleep because a healthy body leads to a healthy mind,” Bhaskar, a student of Kota’s Allen Career Institute, said.

Bhaskar’s father Arun Gupta, a chemical engineer in Mumbai, graduated from IIT and his mother Alpna Gupta is a doctor.

He credited Allen Career Institute for his success and her elder sister, Elina Gupta, who was “quite supportive”.
