Agarwal is the only candidate from Jaipur to have his name in the super-league of 100 scorers. He is from Apex International School Jaipur. The remaining three — Jain, Dwivedi and Raj — have appeared in class X and XII from Kota. Allen Career Institute has claimed all four being their students.
Till the last report came, the students were able to access their results and the list of state-wise best scorers was provided by the testing agency to the scribes. Thereafter, the National Testing Agency will declare the All India Ranking (AIR) on the basis of the best scores out of paper 1 held in January and paper 2 held in September.
Amit Ahuja, a JEE exam expert, said that the 24 students who have scored 100 percentile will be given the ranks on the basis of preferential marks. “Those who scored 100 percentile marks in Maths will be given the preference over those with 100 percentile marks in Physics and Chemistry.”
Of those who appeared in JEE Main, 2.5 lakh best performers in all categories will appear for JEE Advanced, to be held on September 27. Dwivedi is from Bharatpur. He is among the few students to have repeated the 100 percentile in January in JEE-Main paper 1 and now in JEE-Main paper 2.
At a time when 40, 000 students were evacuated from Kota during the lockdown, Dwivedi chose to stay in Kota. “I was sure of not going to my hometown in Bharatpur for a simple reason that I knew that my hostel room in Kota is the best place to study and is a safe place to stay away from Covid-19,” said an elated Dwivedi, who has already started preparing for JEE-Advanced.
Jain’s six years of struggle has paid off brilliantly. He came to Kota in class VI to prepare for JEE. Jain, in a bid to clear the exam, has won several competitive exams like a gold medal in IJSO in 2017.
“My Kota journey has come to an end but the memories will remain forever. I came as a kid next door and this city has given me my dream, to get into IIT-Bombay,” said Jain over the phone.
