Of the 1.8 lakh candidates who appeared for the Joint Entrance Exam (Advanced) 2024, 48,248 cleared the test, as per the results announced by the organising chairperson of the Indian Institute of Technology (Madras) on Sunday.

Successful women candidates numbered 7,964 and persons with disabilities, 594. While 14,083 successful candidates were from the General category, 9,281 belonged to Other Backward Classes (OBC), 5,423 to Economically Weaker Sections, 13,794 to Scheduled Caste and 5,073 to Scheduled Tribes.

Ved Lahoti of the IIT Delhi zone emerged as the topper (All India Rank 1) in the Common Rank List (CRL), obtaining 355 marks out of 360.

It was the 17-year-old’s first attempt at the entrance exam. Mr. Lahoti, who wants to pursue a degree in computer science at IIT Bombay, is interested in artificial intelligence research.

Dwija Dharmeshkumar Patel of IIT Bombay zone is the top-ranked female candidate with CRL 7. She obtained 332 out of 360 marks. She too wishes to pursue a degree in computer science from IIT Bombay.

Hailing from Pitampura, Aditya Kumar, who obtained the AIR 2 scored 346 out of 360 marks. Talking to The Hindu, Mr. Kumar said, “I started preparing for JEE (Advanced) since class nine in order to build a solid foundation, so that I could grasp advanced concepts. Regular test and doubt clearing sessions at my coaching classes in FIITJEE helped me learn from my mistakes.”

While Mr. Kumar said coaching may not be essential to clear the test, he certainly found it helpful in his case. “The doubt solving sessions with mentors and teachers helped me analyse my performance and optimise my speed and accuracy,” he added. He wishes to pursue a degree in computer science at IIT Bombay and, in future, aspires to take up quantum physics research in the defence sector. Mr. Kumar is also a Junior Science Olympiad and Physics Olympiad gold medallist.

On dealing with stress during preparations, Mr. Kumar said, “Competition should not be unhealthy and every kid should focus on themselves and give their best. Students get into an unhealthy comparison mode and get dejected. That should not be the case.”

He firmly believes that if the IIT seats should increase, they should only increase with proper management and availability of infrastructure and research facility.

Other candidates in top 10 are: Aditya (IIT Delhi zone), Bhogalpalli Sandesh (IIT Madras zone), Rhythm Kedia (IIT Roorkee zone), Putti Kushal Kumar (IIT Maadras), Rajdeep Mishra (IIT Bombay zone), Koduri Tejeswar (IIT Madras zone), Dhruvi Hemant Doshi (IIT Bombay zone) and Alladabona SSDB Sidhvik Suhas (IIT Madras zone).

JEE-Main, which is the admission test for engineering colleges across the country, is the qualifying exam for JEE-Advanced.
