Anant Lunia, who is a resident of Vasant Kunj, got the third rank in the exam. "There wasn't much change in the way I studied during the COVID-19 pandemic. I got more time during the pandemic since there was no school. During this time, I focussed on subjects I was weak at. Apart from focussing on books and taking notes, giving tests, I analysed the silly mistakes I would make often and improved it," he added. Lunia said his first preference is IIT Bombay followed by IIT Delhi. This year, IIT Kharagpur conducted the exam, which is the qualifying test for admission to the prestigious IITs. While the JEE-Mains is conducted for admission to engineering colleges across the country, it is considered as a qualifying test for JEE-Advanced.
