“My elder sister Roopal Verma is pursuing B.Tech from NIT Raipur. She had prepared for the competitive exams from Kota, which inspired me to come to the city to prepare for my dream,” he says.
The third student to top the coveted exam is Mridul Agarwal who scored 300/300 in March attempt.
Mridul had also achieved 100 percentile in the February attempt but could not score a perfect 300. Desirous to improve his own score and prepare for JEE Advanced, he appeared again and managed to get right at the top. Mridul has been preparing for the JEE Main examinations for the past three years from Kota institute. He has been focused on the competitive examination since then.

Guramrit Singh Kalra, who scored ALL India Rank-1 in JEE Main 2021 and 100 percent in JEE Main 2021 (Feb Attempt), said, “I studied physics for two hours in the morning. After this, I devoted 2 to 3 hours to Chemistry during the day. I studied Mathematics in the night. The lockdown proved beneficial for my preparations; the faculties helped clear my doubts. Guramrit ensured that he took out 2 hours every day to play cricket or football with friends to manage stress.”
“My Father Priyadarshan Singh is a cloth merchant, and mother Priti is a housewife,” he says adding that he wishes to work in a multinational company after completing his engineering.

She created history by being the first female to secure 300 out of 300 marks in JEE Main. “I had scored 99.97 percentile in JEE Main 2021 February attempt. But my target was to secure above 99.98 percentile, which was the reason for appearing in JEE Main March 2021. In the first attempt of JEE Main, 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 JEE March 2021,” Kavya said.
Kavya, who scored a perfect 300 in JEE Main March 2021, aims to pursue B.Tech from IIT Bombay. Kavya has been a bright student from the very beginning. Her father Vikas Chopra is a software Engineer and Mother Shikha Chopra is a Teacher.
