Ahmedabad's Tanishka, who bagged AIR 16, expressed her views on Covid-19. She said, "The entire situation was pretty strange. We suddenly had to shift to online lectures. However, the strict schedule and discipline made me feel that the change was quite normal." According to her, the paper was exactly how she had expected it to be. "My short-term goal is to pursue computer science at the Indian Institute of Technology Bombay. As long-term goals, I prefer exploring my options once I step into the institute," she added.

She also advised the future aspirants of JEE Advanced. She said, "It is important that you be honest to yourself. Don't be afraid and face the reality. It is necessary to not live in denial and fantasies. Though it is great to dream, it is not okay to fantasise. Always appear for tests to know where you actually stand."
