This friendly and extremely "down to earth" lad is ecstatic and overjoyed at his grand success, as he topped IIT JEE 2012. When asked how you feel, he innocently smiled and said "I don't have any words; this is the best state I have ever felt."
He says more than what I have got, the experience of being on top of the world is something to cherish. He had a grand welcome at school and FIITJEE, South Delhi centre, where he took his coaching. He said, "I have been studying in Modern Vidya Niketan, Sector 17 for past 12 years and I am very attached to my school. Besides my teachers congratulating me, it was a wonderful feeling to see more than 2,000 students assembled in my honour and the way they were hopping just to the see the face of the boy who has done them and their school proud."
Any tips for juniors?
Arpit Agarwal, JEE 2012 topper quiet confidently advises his juniors, "Plan your time well. Choose a good institute or a good teacher and keep full faith in your teachers. At the same time remember you are the only one responsible for your future. Formulate your plan, convey it to your teachers and seek support from them."
Does coaching really matter?
He says, "I wouldn't want to give the entire credit to just my school or just my coaching center. It was the support of everybody put together that worked for me. Since FIITJEE South Delhi is 35 kms from my house, I couldn't go there each day. So, I went to FIITJEE Faridabad for clearing my doubts and school teachers were there to support me every time too. So, I would say everybody supported me and hence the results. Besides, I had the moral support from so many people."
How are your parents feeling?
Extremely happy child of proud parents, he said "they are obviously really excited. They didn't express it front of me, but I know they are overjoyed."
Was this a Herculean task?
"No, it wasn't a Herculean task. I don't say I am the most intelligent in the country, I m not most hard working boy nor am I the luckiest, perhaps, I m the best combination of all and that clicked for me."
Your traits that helped you achieve this success?
"Sincerity and proper planning. I never worried about what I can't do, I just had my plans fine tuned and that used to be my consistent motive. People wanted first and second rank but I wanted to do the best I can do and didn't bothers about what others do. Planning in my mind helped me.'
What plans next?
"I am eyeing upon Computer science from IIT Delhi, but am yet to finalise the plan. These four years I would focus upon improving my personality and communication skills."
Why IIT Delhi?
"Delhi will give me maximum exposure. I pick Delhi in an attempt to improve my personality."
What's your ultimate career objective?
"I haven't thought over it. I keep short term goals. I only wanted a good rank, being first was an add-on. I was aiming to be among top 80 or top 100, but I was not expecting being the topper."
FIITJEE surveyed people and they were hopeful that I would score great. After the answer keys were put up online, everybody had complete trust that I would be among the toppers. I was expecting being among top 5, rank 1 was a sure surprise."
How are you celebrating?
"I have been attending Press conferences all day yesterday. So many people were calling to congratulate. While I had switched off my phone, my parents were receiving innumerable calls too. I celebrated at both at school and FIITJEE centers yesterday. I am relaxing today and will celebrate when my friends will be free of their entrance tests. I too have BITSAT lined up for now."
