The results of the Joint Entrance Examination (Advanced), 2019 were declared on Friday. Its Delhi topper, Archit Bubna, secured the third rank in the all-India list. He is now all set to enrol in Indian Institute of Technology (IIT).

On his expectations about his rank Archit said, “I aimed for all-India rank 1, which is obviously a very difficult target but after giving the exam and discussing among my peers, I expected my rank to be in the top five.”

When asked about what drew him towards the engineering field, he said, “I have always had an interest in science, so engineering seemed to be a promising option. Besides, my father had told me about JEE since I was in second grade.”

The Delhi JEE-Advanced topper aspires to study computer science.

“I found physics the most interesting of all the subjects as it was easier than the rest. I like to spend my leisure time playing video games,” Archit said.

He further said, “Everyone expected me to top the exam. I met their expectations so they’re definitely happy.

“I obviously have more knowledge now than I had previously. I know a lot more fields where I can go now, back then I only knew about JEE. I look forward to going abroad as an option for my career, but as of now I just want to focus on my studies.”

While the JEE-Mains exam is conducted for admission to engineering colleges across the country, the JEE-Advanced is held for those students seeking admission to IITs. It is mandatory for students to clear the JEE-Mains to be eligible to appear for the JEE-Advanced exam.
