While appearing for an exam is terrifying for many, there are others who aim to score the highest marks in competitive tests. From topping UPSC exams to becoming the youngest judge in India, these brilliant minds can put ‘Sharmaji’s beta’ to shame any given day. Jokes apart, being a ranker is a proud and significant achievement.
But what if that’s not enough? What do you do then? Recently, twin brothers Nishant and Pranav Aggarwal topped one of the toughest exams of the country, Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) Main, reports Hindustan Times. While Nishant scored 100 percentile, Pranav attained 99.93 percentile.
However, the two 17-year-olds who devoted 10-12 hours daily for preparation, are planning to take the test again. Both of them will reappear for the April session as they love taking tests. The twins used to motivate each other while studying together. Pranav, who was just .07 percentile behind his twin will reappear for the test to improve his ranking.
“My brother being among the highest scorers has motivated me. I am happy for him but will appear for the test again and try to improve my rank,” Pranav was quoted saying by the Indian Express.
The duo has been consistently good at academics and aims to study at the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT). While Nishant is yet to decide his field, Pranav aims to get a seat in Computer Science. “I love coding. I already know Python and C++ and would love to explore the field further,” Pranav was quoted saying.
The twins shared their secret to success as well. Nishant was quoted saying, “I followed a routine. I made sure to study all three subjects daily. On topics that I found relatively difficult, I devoted more time. Achieving a set target, clearing exams and achieving good marks was our motivation.”
They said that diligently following a fixed schedule helped them reach their goal. They also included physical activity in their daily routine to relax. Well, this sounds like an achievable plan, doesn’t it? What’s your secret to passing exams? Let us know in the comments below.
