He drew inspiration from elder brother Sanchit Jindal, a BTech (computer science) student from IIT Bombay. Jindal wants to follow in his brother’s footsteps.

City girl Gunveen Gill has scored overall 99.98% marks. She scored 100 per cent marks in physics.

A student of Sri Guru Harkrishan Public School, Gunveen is now aiming for a berth in IIT Delhi to pursue computer science. “I tried focusing on one topic at a time. The NCERT is the holy bible for competitive exams. I used to study for 10-12 hours a day for the exam,” said Gill.

“Failure comes along, but you have to take it in your stride,” she said. Gunveen drew inspiration from her parents, who encouraged her to test her limits.

“My parents have always stressed the need to have a plan to achieve goals. I have had this clarity since I was in class 9. This has helped me crack JEE Main exam,” she added.

Gunveen’s parents are doctors and she devotes 12 hours to studies. Apart from being a regular classroom student, Gunveen is also an NTSE and INMO scholar.
