State topper Atharva Verma
“I was not expecting to be the state topper. I want to study in an IIT and become a good engineer. I am now working to score well in JEE Advanced and bag a seat at IIT Delhi or IIT Bombay. I am interested in coding so I am hoping to study B Tech in Computer Science.
One of my biggest strength is my mother (homemaker Rajlakshmi Verma). I stay here with my mom, as my father has to be in Chhattisgarh for work. My father (Ravishekhar Verma) works with a national NGO. I study for 10 to 11 hours a day.

State’s girl topper Siya Gupta
“It was my target to be among the state toppers. I used to study for 15 hours. I want to become a computer science engineer. My dad (Mukesh Kumar Gupta) is a civil engineer.
My mom (Amita Gupta) is a homemaker. I was interested in Physics. I got motivated by others who have succeeded before me. To score well, one must study NCERT at least 5 times. I had to work hard for Chemistry.
I think it’s very important to work on weak topics. It’s the best way to prepare.”
Dhruv Agrawal | FPJ
State’s second topper Dhruv
“I scored 285 out of 300 marks, and am now preparing for the JEE Advanced. I want to join one of the IITs. I devoted 10-12 hours every day to studies, with 5-6 hours reserved for Physics, which I found to be tough.
“I started to focus on JEE when I was in Class 11. My father (MPEB official Ravindra Kumar) and mother (homemaker Babita) are my pillars of strength. My success mantra is consistency,” he said
Samyak Jain | FPJ
State’s third topper Samyak
“Preparing for JEE Main 2022 in the online mode was a challenge, but when one is committed to winning, everything is possible. I am inspired by my elder brother (Arpit) and my dad (Mukesh Kumar Jain).
My brother is an engineer and my dad is an engineer at RRCAT. So, I had to follow them. My mother (Ritu) supported me. I am more inclined towards electronics and computers. So, I will focus on studying and becoming a good electronics or computer science engineer in future.
I balanced my studies with games. I studied for 7 to 8 hours every day. I use to love playing badminton before Covid-19 outbreak. It was my stress reliever. I miss that. My mantra is: Focus.”
