Pune: Two city students have bagged first and second positions in the first stage of the IIT-JEE (Main) exam. Kapil Ahuja, a student from the Forum for Indian Institute Of Technology Joint Entrance Examination (FIITJEE) has scored 320 out of 360, while Samir Kulkarni from IITian’s Prashikshan Kendra, got 313 out of 360.
Around 13.75 lakh students had appeared for the examination pan India, of which about 35,000 appeared from Pune. Approximately 500 have qualified for JEE Advanced, slated for May 25.
“I am happy, as well as relieved, at having scored well in the JEE Main. It is very satisfying to see your hard work translate into results. However, we still have the JEE Advanced to go and I will not spare any effort in the few weeks we have for it,” Kapil Ahuja said.
PK Dash center head, FIITJEE said “At our centres, we try to make a difference in the way students think. While enhancing student’s IQ, special attention is given to holistic development too.”
Speaking to dna, Sameer said that since he has good marks in the Mains, he now wants to crack IIT-JEE Advanced and bag a seat at IIT Mumbai. His plan B is BITS Pilani.
“The results have established beyond doubt, that students who undergo a systematic JEE oriented coaching for two years or more only have secured above 115 marks. Those who studied only for 12th boards, neglecting JEE Mains have scored poorly, many even scored a zero,” said Durgesh Mangeshkar of IIT-P.Pune: Two city students have bagged first and second positions in the first stage of the IIT-JEE (Main) exam.
