JEE Main 2020: Appearing for exams and scoring well can also be a hobby. This unique passion has seen twin brothers Nishant and Pranav Aggarwal top one of the most sought after exams of the country – Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) Main. While Nishant scored 100 percentile, Pranav obtained 99.93 percentile.

The two 17-year-olds devoted 10-12 hours daily for preparation, clearing doubts and motivating each other at the end of the day. Despite preparing together, Nishant edged ahead of his brother. This has motivated Pranav to appear for the April session. “My brother being among the highest scorers has motivated me. I am happy for him but will appear for the test again and try to improve my rank,” said Pranav. Nishant, too, informed that he will appear for the April session as he loves taking tests.

While Nishant is yet to decide on his field of choice, Pranav aims for Computer Science. “I love coding. I already know Python and C++ and would love to explore the field further,” remarked Pranav.

Sharing his preparation strategy, Nishant mentioned, “I followed a routine. I made sure to study all three subjects daily. On topics which I found relatively difficult, I devoted more time. My main focus was JEE Advanced and I prepared for Mains only a couple of months ahead of the exam. For Mains, I focused on NCERTs and material provided by FIITJEE.”

He commented that “achieving a set target, clearing exams and achieving good marks” was motivation enough.
