Dissatisfied With 99 Percentile, 2 Kota Students Appear For JEE Again, Finally Score 100%

This year’s JEE aspirants have taken ‘over-achievement’ to the next level. Gone are the days when kids were scared of their topper classmates who always managed to score 90%. Nowadays, 90% is but a humble achievement…the real deal is scoring a 100.

New Delhi’s Kavya Chopra and Jaipur’s Mridul Agarwal had appeared for JEE (Joint Entrance Examination) in February. Both of them qualified with flying colours – Kavya scored 99.97 percentile while Mridul scored 99.9999 percentile. However, both of them weren’t satisfied with their results and wanted to give another shot. And so they did. Only this time, they aimed for the perfect 100.

According to TOI, the two took the exam again in March and scored 300/300! Kavya Chopra is now the first girl to score 100% in JEE Mains.

According to Times Now, Kavya Chopra took the exam again with the desire to score more than 99.98 percentile.

“In the first attempt, I focused more on Physics and Chemistry, yet I scored less in Chemistry. Hence, I had to put more effort into Chemistry for the next 15 days for the March examination,” she said.

Kavya’s father is a computer engineer while her mother is a teacher of Mathematics. Just like her father, she wants to become an engineer someday. But first, she wants to join IIT-Bombay.

Mridul Agarwal, on the other hand, is inspired by Google’s CEO Sundar Pichai, reports The Indian Express.

“Pichai’s success is an inspiration for many like me — from passing out from IIT to becoming the CEO of tech giant Google. I also want to work in some top tech company or will run my own start-up,” he said.  

He too wishes to pursue Computer Engineering from IIT-Bombay.

Congratulations to the two students for performing phenomenally!
