51 students of Aakash BYJU’S have secured 100 percentile in Physics, 14 students have secured 100 percentile in Chemistry and 6 students have secured 100 percentile in Mathematics.
JEE is considered the world’s toughest entrance exam. The students attributed their entry into the elite list of top percentiles in JEE to their efforts in understanding the concepts, and their strict adherence to their learning schedule. “We are grateful that Aakash BYJU’S has helped us with both. But for the content and coaching from the institute, we would not have grasped many concepts in different subjects in a short period of time,” they said.
Congratulating all the students, Mr. Aakash Chaudhry, Managing Director, Aakash BYJU’S, said, “We congratulate all the state toppers and the students who have scored exemplary percentiles. Their achievement speaks volumes of their hard work and dedication as well as the support of their parents and faculty at Aakash BYJU’S. We wish them all the best with their future endeavors.”
He added that during the pandemic-hit academic years, Aakash BYJU’S walked the extra mile to turn students into top percentile scorers in JEE. “We stepped up our digital presence to be always available for our students. We made study materials, and question banks accessible online. We conducted several virtual motivational sessions and seminars on exam preparation and time management skills. It is heartening to see our efforts paying off, as evident from the score sheets of our students, many of whom are well on their way to get admission in a top IIT or NIT or a central government’s engineering college to pursue higher studies of their choice.”
JEE (Main) is conducted in two sessions to give multiple opportunities for students to improve their scores. While JEE Advanced is only for admission to the Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs), JEE Main is for admission to several National Institute of Technologies (NITs) and other centre-aided engineering colleges in India. Students must appear for JEE Main to sit for JEE Advanced.
