In an interview, Gokulnath said that although he rues over the fact that he could not score the perfect 100 percentile in the exam, yet it will give him an extra bit of motivation in the upcoming exams to touch the magical figure. He also said that his main priority is to prepare for the next challenge and not ponder over what went wrong in this exam.
Gokulnath has been in the limelight earlier on many occasions. In 2018, he amassed 99.4% in his class Xth exam and secured an AIR of 4 at the Kishore Vaigyanik Protsahan Yojana. In 2019, he became the state topper in class XIth exams. He dreams of studying Computer Sciences from one of the renowned IITs in the country.
The success story of the second in line Srijesh Singh Gusain is also somewhat similar. Scoring in the 99 percentile bracket means he can now pursue his lifelong dream of studying in one of the IITs. He also wants to explore all the higher study opportunities that a B.Tech degree from one of the IITs will open up for him. He harbours a noble dream of eradicating miseries of the country using research and technology. He said that NCERT textbooks are the best source to prepare for an exam like JEE Main.
Srijesh will appear in the April session of the exam too to improve his score and so will another top scorer from UP Amritesh Sharma, who scored 99.87 percentile in the JEE Main 2020 exam. He too wants to pursue studies in Computer Science from one of the top seven IITs.
