GUWAHATI, June 27 - �Private coaching may be helpful to get a seat in IIT. But, I think private coaching is dispensable, as it cannot guarantee a seat in IIT. Besides, anyone can crack the entrance examination of IIT through regular study,� said Pradipta Parag Bora from Guwahati, who stood first from IIT Guwahati zone in the Joint Entrance Examination (Advanced), 2019.
Pradipta, who is going to study Computer Science at IIT Bombay, while explaining his success mantra said, �I always strongly believe in regular study and revision. Along with textbooks I had also used some study material of distance learning course.�
He asserted that every aspirant should have strong and clear knowledge about the basics of all related subjects to crack the IIT JEE.
�In future I want to do research in computer science, through which I will try to contribute something towards the development of my society,� he added.
This year, Arunangshu Bhattacharya of Guwahati also stood first in the entrance examination of the Jawaharlal Institute of Postgraduate Medical Education and Research (JIPMER). He also secured the 19th position in the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) and the sixth position in the entrance examination of All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS).
