The Joint Entrance Exam, one of the most critical competitive exams of the country that were conducted amid the closing of the second wave of the covid 19 pandemic, finally released their results on Wednesday, in which the state did exceedingly well.
44 students secured 100 percentile marks from across the country. Out of which 18 students secured AIR 1 rank at the examination that guarantees them a seat in any IITs irrespective of their JEE Advanced Result. Seven students from Telangana scored 100% in this year's JEE Mains, while two students Komma Sharanya and Madur Adarsh Reddy, joined the other 16 in the AIR 1 ranking.
The National Testing Agency(NTA) conducted this year's JEE Main in four sessions keeping in mind the pandemic, and all scores and ranks were decided based on the candidate's best score in more than one session of the exam. This year has been one candidate shy of matching last year's toppers of eight students.
Students have described how they managed to be covid positive and still spent up to 10 hours preparing and practicing for the big exam, and now have come out on top. For example, Madur Adarsh Reddy, one of the state's AIR 1 ranked students, described how he was tension-free about covid during his third and fourth test session as he had already contracted the virus and knew that he wouldn't contract it again.
The results of B-Arch and B-planning are yet to be declared. However, 20 candidates have been banned for three years to write the exam and will not be eligible to apply for JEE Advanced.
