JEE Main 2022

After scoring 300 out of 300 marks in the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) Main 2022 and achieving an All India Rank of 3, Parth Bharadwaj doesn’t want to become an engineer. Yes, he has some other plans. Parth was not too inclined towards academics and was more interested in sports. He has been a national-level quizzer and state-level football player.

While talking to a reputed media channel, Parth said, “I was not too inclined towards academics and was more interested in sports. Before class 11, I was a national-level quizzer and state-level football player. I was not much into studies at that time.”

Parth, a Rajasthani boy scored 99.975 percentile marks in session 1 of the engineering entrance exam and 100 percentiles in the second attempt. He has never been actually interested in engineering; his main aim lies in cracking UPSC civil service exam.

He further stated that engineering is considered to be a safe option but it is not. “Engineering is considered to be a safe option but it is still not as safe, in terms of career prospects and opportunities. Around 30-40 lakh students have taken CBSE 12th and around 9 lakhs took JEE Main. The number is still quite high in JEE I would say, however, there has been research that tells that about 80 percent of the engineers in India are not suitable for any job at all,” he said.

Talking about his preparation, Parth said, “My main focus has always been on JEE Advanced, however, I am not targeting any particular IIT. Will see which college and course offer me more opportunities in relation to UPSC CSE. College would be a secondary focus. I had been preparing for JEE Advanced since class 11 and started with Main preparation in April.”

“I was studying previous year’s papers and had not studied the things that actually come in the Main exam. For eg, questions from some specific chapters from NCERT physics and chemistry are asked only in JEE Main and not in Advanced. Such chapters I learned by heart only like around two months before the exam,” he added.

Parth claimed that he has tested all the possible options for planning the attempting strategy. Parth said, “Since math is the lengthiest section, I started with that first. I tried to finish it in 75 minutes and in the remaining one hour, I attempted physics and chemistry. Then I took the remaining time to recheck and go through the math section. For JEE Advanced, as of now, I’m practicing mock tests and previous year question papers only.”
