The first-ever student to have scored 100 pc in the prestigious Joint Entrance Examination- Mains, Udaipur boy Kalpit Veerwal has made it to the Limca Book of Records for his feat.
Veerwal scored 360 out of 360 in the JEE-Mains this year and is now studying Computer Science at Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay.
His record of the perfect score will feature under the “Education Achievements” category of the 2018 edition, an official from the Limca Book of Records said.
“I was confident of cracking the examination but didn’t expect a perfect score. Similarly, making it to the Limca Book of Records was not something I ever dreamt of,” Veerwal told PTI over phone from Mumbai.
Veerwal’s home city of Udaipur is not more than 300 km from Kota, which is referred to as country’s “coaching hub” because of large number of medical and engineering aspirants who go there for their preparations.
“I did not study for 15 hours a day, I did not go down the usual ‘Kota route’ for IIT preparations but consistent studies helped me a lot,” he said.
