Kalpit Veerwal created a buzz this year when the JEE-Mains result was announced by scoring a full 360 on 360, it was a historic performance as he was the first one to score 100 percent in the most prestigious technical exam and because of his extraordinary performance Kalpit now enters the ‘Limca Book of Records’.His record of the perfect score will feature under the “Education Achievements” category of the 2018 edition.
“I was confident of cracking the examination but didn’t expect a perfect score. Similarly, making it to the Limca Book of Records was not something I ever dreamt of,” Veerwal told PTI over the phone from Mumbai.
“I did not study for 15 hours a day, I did not go down the usual Kota route for IIT preparations but consistent studies helped me a lot,” he said.
“All we want for our children was to study at good colleges and land up jobs that could help them in easy survival. We never pressured them to come first in class, score 90 per cent, get the top rank or bag a job that would make them millionaires.
“Everybody suggested that we should send him to Kota or Hyderabad for coaching but we decided not to put him under any extra pressure and enroll him in an institute here. But him making a record is not something we ever expected,” his father told PTI.
Kalpit is currently studying computer science at IIT-Bombay, he scored 109th rank in the JEE-Advanced.
Out of the over 11.8 lakh students, who appeared for the examination for admission to various IITs and engineering colleges, around 2.2 lakh have qualified for the second and final round — the JEE (Advanced).
Kalpit is consistent with his academic performance as he had also topped the Indian Junior Science Olympiad in class 9 and bagged the top spot in the National Talent Search Examination in Class 10.
