JEE Advanced Topper Ved Lahoti Prefers IIT Bombay

JEE Advanced

Ved Lahoti ranked first in the Common Rank List (CRL) for the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) Advanced 2024, scoring 355 out of 360.

Lahoti intends to pursue computer science engineering (CSE) at IIT Bombay. He stated that he wanted to examine opportunities in CSE, artificial intelligence, and other areas during his initial studies at the institute before deciding on his next steps. He also expects that there will be plenty of opportunities and room for advancement in AI and other emerging technologies in India in the future.

The results of the Joint Entrance Examination Advanced (JEE Advanced) 2024 were announced on June 9. This year, up to 48,248 students qualified for IIT entrance. The 17-year-old participated in both sessions of JEE Main 2024. He received 295 marks in the April session, compared to 280 in January.

Ved's unwavering passion for Arithmetic guided his career, leading him to choose a path different from medicine. He further solidified his commitment by enrolling in a rigorous two-year classroom coaching curriculum at Allen Institute Kota in Rajasthan, despite being initially from Indore, Madhya Pradesh. 

When asked about his preparation technique, the JEE Advanced CRL 1 stated that he studied from notes provided by the coaching institute and NCERT textbooks. Although he depended on the coaching materials and is grateful to the institute for resolving his doubts, he believes tutoring is optional to pass JEE Advanced. "A coaching only streamlines the preparation and guides in general. It can be helpful but not compulsory," Ved added.


When asked about his approach to the JEE Advanced 2024 question paper, he emphasised the significance of time management. He started with chemistry, then moved on to physics, and allocated most of his time to studying mathematics, an essential aspect of his preparation strategy.

Ved claimed it was easy when asked how he simultaneously prepared for JEE and board examinations. Throughout his JEE preparation in Kota over the last two years, he avoided social media. 

"There were many overlaps in the syllabus of both exams. The only difference was in the pattern of questions asked," he said, adding that only English and physical education required a little attention. Rest, all were the same. Unlike previous years, the JEE Main and JEE Advanced question papers were comparatively more straightforward this year, the topper added.


Education Exclusive wishes Ved Lahoti a bright academic future!
