With a score of 99.80%, Janmejay Kothari, a student at the Cathedral and John Connon School, Fort, Mumbai, secured the position of national topper in the ICSE 2024 exams. 

Exhibiting joy at his achievement, he stated feeling overwhelmed with his achievement. He said, "I feel very proud of myself. It is also very overwhelming since I didn't expect myself to be the national topper."

Starting early and studying dedicatedly for his school's tests proved helpful for him. He said, “I studied very well for my preliminary exams, which proved very helpful. I used the vacation time well to study.“

“Starting early and being consistent with my studies proved to be the most helpful,” Kothari added.

He also plays Cricket. He has represented Maharashtra at the state-level cricket tournament.

Highlighting that he didn't get much time to study because of being occupied with sports practice, he said, “Honestly, I didn't have much time to study, I was occupied with my cricket practice but I managed my time well and studied wherever I got the chance. Studies were my priority."

Unlike any toppers’ study tactics, Kothari mentioned what helped him the most was studying last minute. He claimed that it helped him remember concepts during the exam and attempt the questions with confidence. “The last month before my exams, my entire focus was my studies. However, since I had my concepts clear because of my consistent practice for the earlier tests, it was easy to remember everything,” Kothari told the Free Press Journal. 

He emphasised that during his preparations he learned that one should always prioritise study. He said, "Study hard, focus dedicatedly on your topics, and make sure that you also enjoy and do other things that you love."

Looking ahead, he aspires to pursue a career in the science field.
