17-year-old Sikh boy from Jammu and Kashmir tops JEE (Mains) with 99.91 percentile
According to The Hindustan Times, Tejas Singh, a 17-year-old Sikh boy from Jammu and Kashmir, has secured the top position in JEE (Mains) with a percentile of 99.91.
Tejas attained an all-India rank of 1123 after the JEE Mains results were declared on Saturday. He is the son of Sukhpal Singh, Additional Secretary in the Public Health Engineering Department (Jal Shakti), and Sonia Singh, a government teacher. His aim is to crack JEE (Advanced) on June 4.
Tejas attended Delhi Public School and secured 93% in his matriculation. “My father had informed me about JEE exams. As I liked mathematics, I opted for the non-medical stream and began preparing for it. I joined a coaching center in Class 10, but my preparation was affected by the Covid-19 pandemic in 2020 and 2021,” Tejas said.
“I started serious preparations in 2022. I studied for eight to nine hours a day with breaks, but remained consistent. Consistency is crucial to one’s success,” he added. Tejas attributed his success to regular mock tests and expressed his gratitude to God, teachers, and parents.
