What rank did Sankalp Gaur (JEE Main 2015 topper)
Sankalp Gaur a boy from pune, Maharashtra earned a score of 345/360 in JEE Mains 2015 not only this he also obtained the All India Rank (AIR) 1 out of 13.05 lakh JEE Main candidates.He was brilliant student throughout his school days, he had scored 97.80% in Class XII and also achieved AIR 56 in JEE Advanced 2015. In an interview Sankalp Gaur shared some of information and experiences of his voyage of JEE preparation . After reading his interview let me share the unsung angle of the Topper’s story . Sankalp Gaur is from Pune, Maharashtra he did his schooling from DAV Public School and simultaneously took a coaching for JEE preparation .He belongs to a nuclear family his father is a DGM of Arms and Ammunition Factory, Khadki, Pune. His mother was working with High Energy Materials Research Laboratory (HEMRL) . He owe his success to his mother as 2 years prior she left her job just to support him in his delicate phase of life. Since his childhood he was focused on pursuing pure science and not engineering but after class 10th his teachers suggested him that pursuing engineering would be a better choice as he will not only be able to know the details about the subjects but also the practical and application aspect of the area as well and consequently he thought he can pursue Pure Science after completing engineering as well. On regular days, after attending school and coaching he used to study for 2 to 3 hours and during holidays he studied for 6 to 7 hours. Maths and Physics were his favorite subjects and he enjoyed studying them. Chemistry on the other hand was a bit tough and complicated for him due to the vast knowledge and theoretical aspect that is involved in the subject. He devised a strategy for attempting paper in which he used to solve chemistry first followed by physics and mathematics so that he can solve them peacefully. He stated that school education is not enough to fetch a good rank in JEE one need the proper guidance of coaching institutes who offers a systematic structure for JEE preparation. After completing graduation he want to pursue Masters in pure Physics and in future he would like to go for research. When he was asked for the advice for upcoming JEE aspirants he said that the secret behind his success was his love for the subjects catalyzed by regular and systematic study regime. So, according to him one should not take this journey as a burden unless he/she should enjoy each and every phase of it . He also said it’s not about the number of hours you study it’s about how much you put in every hour . Thanks for reading
Is there a subject-wise cutoff in the JEE advance
Yes, there is subject wise cutoff in JEE ADVANCED. But we can't actually predict the cutoff marks even if it is subjectwise because cutoff depends on the basis of difficulty level of the paper, and it can be properly decided only at the time of results. But for last year i.e. 2017 it was approx 10% for each subject as each subject comprised 124 marks and the subjectwise cutoff was 12 marks . So, it is generally 10% of the subject marks and it is not a big deal to score 10% marks if you have prepared well.
What should be done a day before JEE Advanced 2018
A day before JEE ADVANCED exam,this is the day which can be the turning point of your journey towards IIT. This day is more important than the JEE ADVANCED exam day because if something went wrong in this day then there are huge chances of your exam being ruined. So, all you need to do is just relax i know it’s not that much easy to relax before such a crucial exam, it’s normal to feel a little bit nervous and anxious a day before exam, but remember to never let your nervousness and anxiety get a hold of you during the exam.I will personally suggest you to go for a movie like deadpool 2,raazi,etc chill out forget all the stress just remember the best moments of your journey(like remember about the review tests of your institute in which you scored well). If you want to revise just go through the formulas and the short notes (if you have made) , don’t practise anything especially something new because it is sure that if you will try something new then you will face difficulties and it will lead to lack of your confidence . Remember if you have worked hard throughout your journey(preparation) keep faith in it because this is payback time all the late nights and early mornings will surely pay you back . And on the exam day just think that THE UPCOMING 8 HOURS IS YOUR LAST FIGHT JUST BESTOW YOUR COMPETENCE INTO IT . GOOD LUCK
How is the G3 batch in Vibrant Academy in Kota?
Well according to me batch doesn’t matter if you work hard continuously, batch totally depends on your performance in review tests and not on your intelligence and hard work . In Vibrant Academy there are four houses for Micro courses namely E,N,G,R and each of the houses consists of 5 batches and you are talking about the batch G3 it is an average batch students used to say that in order to get selection you need to be in the top batches like G1,E1,R1,N1 but it is not at all true there are examples where students started from batches like G3 and later they performed well and entered into higher batches and got a very good selection. My personal opinion is that you should never settle yourself for less,if you are in G3 batch try to study more hard, try to identify your mistakes and weaknesses and try to notch higher batches it will eventually boost your self confidence and also you will be surrounded with some good students as advantage of being in a higher batch is that you are surrounded by some brilliant minds. GOOD LUCK Thanks for reading

With 25 marks in JEE MAINS 2018 you can’t get computer science in any of the government colleges unless you are a PwD candidate .If you given MHCET and secured good rank then there are chances . My advice is that If you have interest in JEE and you are ready to work hard then go for a drop otherwise try private engineering colleges. GOOD LUCK for your future.
Can I get into mechanical engineering at Thapar Un
It is very tough to get Mechanical Engineering in thapar university with this rank , you may get it in the 4 th round counselling because the mechanical engineering cutoff for 2017 was: 3 rd round 52107 (outside punjab) 4th round - 78103(outside punjab). So, keep your fingers crossed and I would prefer you to take Chemical in online counselling and wait for the upcoming couselling sessions . You can also go for Electronics (Instrumentation & Control) Engineering ,Mechatronics, Mechanical Engineering (Production) if you are interested because these branches can be available for you at this rank and have a good scope as well. GOOD LUCK

How good is Playing with Graphs by Amit M Aggarwal
It is a very helpful book for JEE Advanced, I myself used this for my JEE preparation. Before buying this book I was very much afraid of the graphs and my teacher also used to tell us innovative approaches to solve conventional problems easily using graphs it made me more anxious, I thought ‘if this scenario continues I will surely loose my grip from mathematics(especially calculus)’ . Then one of my senior suggested me Play with graphs, I started practicing the starting was very smooth as the book started with basic graphs like logarithmic, trigonometric,exponential functions and then it took to me complex graphs which are actually combinations of basic graphs i.e. they contain 2 or more than 2 functions. After continuous practice I actually started playing with graph . Thanks for reading.
