A student from Haryana, who did not give up after scoring a little less than 100%, has fulfilled his dreams in the third attempt of Joint Entrance Exam (JEE) Main 2021.
Anmol Archiwal scored 100 percent in the third attempt and is now aiming higher than the Indian Institute of Technology (IITs).
Archiwal is one of 17 students in India to have received a perfect score in the third session of JEE Main. He received perfect scores in all three subjects: chemistry, physics, and mathematics. Archiwal received a grade of 300 out of 300.
Archiwal’s current goal is to gain admission to the Indian Institute of Science (IISc) in Bangalore.
Anmol’s effort at JEE Mains was not his first. He received a 99.91 percentile on his first attempt and a 99.98 percentile on his second. He, on the other hand, wanted to increase his grades even more and thus attempted the third session.
Anmol said, “In the first two attempts, I did not prepare well. I did not study NCERT chemistry and physics but this time I devoted two weeks to focus on these subjects. Those were major two things I was lagging in the first two attempts.”
Anmol’s father is an advocate from the city of Bhiwani, while his mother is a Sanskrit lecturer. His sister is in the 12th grade and is preparing to take the JEE. He completed his class 12 from CBSE-affiliated Halwasiya Vidya Vihar School, Bhiwani.
Anmol received 98.6 percent in his boards, with 99 points in math and chemistry, and 96 points in physics.
“During the lockdown, I mostly self-studied and interacted with the school teachers offline at the institute or at their homes,” Anmol adds, adding that he also took classes from Aakash Institute, Bhiwani to prepare for the JEE Main, which offered both online and offline classes.
When Anmol was asked about his preparation strategy, he replied, “I solved previous year’s questions along with the resources provided by the institute. My teachers helped a lot.”
Anmol added, “On average, I devoted eight hours per day to prepare for the engineering exam. Consistency is needed to prepare for the JEE Main. Usually, I try to do my best however, not every day can one focus for eight hours. Some days I studied more, on some days lesser. At the end of the day, one should be confident that whatever preparation has been done is the best one could do.”
He concluded, “I want to pursue BSc in mathematics from IISc Bangalore. I am interested in the subject and would like to pursue further research and higher studies in mathematics.”
