The Pune boy Chirag Falor who is already a student of Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), has topped the Joint entrance examination (Advanced) 2020.
The qualifying aggregate marks for the JEE (Advanced) common rank list reduced to 69—a five-year low. the doorway results for the 23 IITs were announced on Monday where the number of candidates qualifying increased to 43,204.
Falor had scored 352 marks out of 396 to top the list and followed by Gangula Bhuvan Reddy and Vaibhav Raj for the AIR second and third ranks, respectively. Kanishka Mittal (AIR 17) is that the topper within the feminine category with 315.
The IIT-Madras zone has the absolute best number of candidates at 28 in Top 100 ranks, followed by IIT-Bombay at 24 and IIT-Delhi 22 this year.
Falor will fork over his IIT seat for his place at the MIT, online classes that have already begun.
Falor who had been preparing for JEE since he was in class IX, wants to be a researcher in astrophysics and not an engineer. “I have always loved the celebs, planets, etc,” he said. watching my love for the sky, my father bought me my first telescope in class VIII which I knew then that when I buy older, I’d want to need up research in astrophysics,” said Falor.
Although his MIT classes started online on September 1, Chirag misses the feel of the important MIT campus and student life. “The curriculum is hectic. the first year is common to all or any or any, and within the second year, I hope to choose either mathematics or physics. variety of my professors are actually behind the detection of gravitational waves,” he said, sounding literally star-struck.
The total number of seats have increased to 16,053 this year from 13,000 in 2019.
Meanwhile, Kanishka Mittal from the IIT-Roorkee zone, the girl topper, is in good company because the gender ratio is that the simplest in five years.
While in 2016, just 847 or 18.5% of the qualified female candidates were offered seats within the IIT, 1,852 (44.3%) were offered admission in 2018, and thus the amount increased to 2,432 (45.4%) in 2019.
“Right now, every sixth student at undergraduate level in our IIT is female,” said V Ramgopal Rao, director, IIT-Delhi.
Four foreigners have also qualified within the JEE (A), apart from 133 OCI and 16 PIO candidates. quite 60% qualified within the OCI (overseas citizen of India) category. And, 70% of the registered students of Indian origin (PIO) qualified within the exam. Last year, only 36% qualified from this category.
There were more OBC candidates who took the exam this year compared with those from the general category: 52,785 (9,349 qualified) took the exam versus 39,605 (18,028 qualified) from the open category.
