Out of this, 41862 students qualified JEE Advanced 2021. Anant Lunia secured AIR 3 In JEE Advanced 2021. He aims to study BTech computer science from IIT Delhi.

Here are the excerpts from the Interview:

Harshita: Congratulations Anant on achieving this huge feat. How did you react to being AIR 3 for JEE Advanced 2021?

Anant: I was very happy. I had been hoping for a good rank but the result still exceeded my expectations.

Harshita: You excelled in both JEE Mains and JEE Advanced. What was the difference between your approaches for both these exams?

Anant: I had been preparing mainly for advanced. I did the topics that were in the jee main syllabus but not in the jee advanced syllabus a week or two  prior to the exam. The rest of my preparation for the jee main was done mainly through mock tests. 

Harshita: In the JEE Advanced Paper, which sections were easy or difficult for you? How did you overcome what you found difficult?

Anant: I found the physics and chemistry sections to be relatively easier this year. Maths was the most difficult section in both papers, in my opinion. I tried to overcome it’s difficulty by giving it more time. I finished the physics and chemistry sections in ninety minutes in both papers, and devoted the rest of the time to maths.

Harshita: What is the ideal time to start taking mock Tests & What role do mock tests play in JEE Advanced Preparation? What was your strategies in particular towards mock tests?

Anant: I think mock tests are a very effective way to practice. I had been giving mock tests for all of class 11th and 12th, though they were chapter specific till I was done in the syllabus. After I had finished the syllabus, which was roughly around September 2020 I started giving full syllabus tests, mostly.

Harshita: You are a huge inspiration to JEE Main and Advanced aspirants. Would you like to give some useful tips or advice?

Anant I think critically analysing what and how you study is important. Going over what you do each day and how you do it, leads to subtle improvements that add up over time. So I’d ask aspirants to do whatever they do actively. Passively reading, is not very effective in my experience, especially for topics that involve memorization like inorganic chemistry.
