Kerala's Thomas Biju Cheeramvelil said, "Cracking the exam was too difficult for me, and the three-year-long preparation was too long. I never thought that I would do so well in my exams. However, I realized it is just about being regular and systematic." He studied for 10 hours, on average, daily. "My future plan is to take up Computer Science from IIT Bombay."
