NEW DELHI: The National Testing Agency (NTA) has declared the JEE Main result 2021 on March 8. Six students have secured a 100 percentile score in the JEE Main February 2021 exam and Ranjim Prabal Das from Assam is one among them. While speaking to News18, Ranjim shared how he prepared for the exam.

Despite testing positive for COVID-19 in November 2020, Ranjim’s focus on preparations was not affected. While talking about his JEE Main preparation strategy 2021, he told News18, “I love solving problems and challenging questions. I did not prepare a timetable as per the number of hours but based on the number of topics I wanted to cover. I spent as much time as it was needed to understand a topic. While preparing for entrance exams, it is important to have a thorough conceptual understanding.”

The report stated that Ranjim started his JEE Main preparations from Class 11 by taking coaching classes from Aakash Institute. When asked about the books he referred for JEE Main 2021, he said, “Apart from NCERT, I studied MS Chauhan, Neeraj Kumar for chemistry; HC Verma and I.E Irodov for physics, and Ghanshyam Tiwari for mathematics. I also solved previous year's JEE question papers.”

Highlighting the importance of JEE Main mock tests, he said that these tests helped him to increase speed and to analyze his performance.

Ranjim told News18 that he was expecting a good score but 100 percentile was a surprise. “I will now not appear for the remaining attempts as it would not make as big a difference. My aim now would be the JEE Advanced – entrance test for IITs. I love programming and want to study computer science or electronics engineering from IIT-Delhi,” the report quoted him as saying.

“I find solving difficult problems to be an engaging task. I always wanted to do something related to engineering. I draw inspiration from Elon Musk. I focus on unique and innovative problems. I too want to come up with tech-based innovations which are out of the ordinary,” he added.

Ranjim’s family had shifted from Assam to Delhi when he was younger and he has been studying in the national capital since then. His father is a doctor by profession and his mother is a homemaker. He has a younger sister who is studying in Class 9 currently and aims to study medicine.
