WBJEE result 2019: The 17-year-old Soham Mistri who topped the West Bengal Joint Entrance Examination (WBJEE) wants to pursue research in computer science – which he believes will help the society at large in future. “After completing my graduation in computer science from the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Bombay, I wish to opt for postgraduation from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), USA. At MIT, I want to pursue research in a field that will help society.” Soham secured All India Rank (AIR 48) in the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) Advanced 2019 and is already placed in the first list of IIT-Bombay.
Regarding his preparation, Soham said, “My focus was to crack the JEE Advanced. As the questions in exam are more conceptual and in-depth, so the preparation helped me to score well in WBJEE as well. I did not prepare for the examination separately.”
“The paper pattern of JEE Advanced is way different from the WBJEE. The JEE Advanced is more conceptual while WBJEE is theoretical,” Soham said.
Apart from self-study, Soham also opted for coaching for the preparation of Joint Entrance Examination. “To crack the competitive examinations such as WBJEE and JEE Advanced, a methodological study is required. I was in the regular class of FIITJEE Durgapur,” said the topper.
The topper also followed the NCERT syllabus thoroughly for both the preparation of WBJEE and JEE Advanced. “The books I studied, Concept of Physics- HC Verma, Concise Inorganic Chemistry- J.D.Lee, Organic Chemistry- Clayden, Mathematics- Arihant publishers,” said the topper.
Like others, Soham has no social media account and spent his leisures with books and games. “I don’t like social media, and for me it is a waste of time.”
