Every year, over a lakh of students appear for the JEE Advanced exam with an aspiration to join one the top IITs in the country. And with relentless hard work as well as dedication, some achieve success. Krish Narain Kapoor of Apeejay School, Mahavir Marg, is one such student who qualified JEE (Advanced) 2022 securing a rank of 4847. In an exclusive interview, the exam acer shares details about his preparation schedule, desired course, college as well as gives tips to future aspirants. Edited excerpts:

How did you prepare for the JEE Advance exam?

For the JEE (Advanced) exam, I studied my notes copiously. I studied in the tuitions for 4 hours every day, and it was followed by self study for another 4 hours. So, that totals to 8 hours of daily study. I divided the subjects daywise sometimes. But most of the time, I solved assignments, previous years’ question papers by setting the timer accordingly.

Which engineering branch and college do you aspire for?

Right now, the first round of the counselling process is going on. One has to put the preference order in the list and in accordance with one’s rank, one gets the college or course available. I want to go for an IIT and want to pursue Aerospace or Computer Science in particular.  But I really hope I get Aerospace in IIT Kanpur

Which subject did you enjoy the most and which one was the tough nut to crack?

Physics was the easiest for me. Organic Chemistry was hard so I had to focus a lot on it.  Math is very lengthy, so that was hard as well.

How did your school help you in achieving this feat?

I attended all classes regularly in the school. That helped a lot as all my concepts would get revised. Also, the practicals in the school had some part of the syllabus which coincided with the JEE syllabus, so that also helped me. Finally, I would really like to thank all the teachers at school. They encouraged me a lot.

 Any tips for future JEE aspirants?

Solve the previous years’ questions rigorously. And practice time management, otherwise in the main exam, in that pressure and stressful atmosphere of the exam hall, one feels a lot of tension, and is unable to give the best. So, create the environment of the exam at home and practice solving the paper in that with your timer on.
