When did you decided that the JEE was something you want to go for?
Actually, I decided that I wanted to pursue engineering and not medical, so JEE was the obvious choice to prepare for. I was then pretty
clear cut that I wanted to qualify for JEE and enter into IIT.
How did you prepare for the exams?
Basically, I joined FIITJEE, Lucknow in their Classroom program for two years. I did not attend any other coaching classes as I thought that the guidance at FIITJEE was sufficient enough. Also, this gave me time for some self-study which, although not regular, helped me a lot.
What was your motivation was it just brand IIT or something else?
Initially, it was just Brand IIT, but then when I learnt about Genetics research and the opportunities that IIT students get in the field of Biotechnology I studied to get into the Biotechnology department.
What according to you are the best ingredient to crack the JEE?
