Achieved 100 percentile in first attempt itself
JEE Mains exams were held in February, March, July and August this year. Every candidate had the option of how many times he/she wanted to appear. After 4 attempts the final score and merit list is prepared. In the first attempt Guramrit had made in February, he had got 300/300 marks, i.e. 100 percentile. Hence Guramrit did not make any other attempts after that.
The goal is to fulfill the dreams of the father
In a conversation, Guramrit Singh’s father is a businessman and mother is a housewife. Whereas the younger brother is a student of 10th standard. Father Gurdarshan Singh and maternal uncle are his inspiration. He tells that the father has worked hard in raising us. They have been dropping me to school since childhood. Since childhood, I wanted to fulfill his dreams.
Guramrit told that apart from the online classes of class 12, he used to prepare for JEE Mains for 7 to 8 hours everyday. He used to take breaks only to play for half an hour. He has also taken coaching for this from a private coaching center. Success mantra is to obey the teachers, finish the work on time, keep your concepts clear and revise daily. He gives the same advice to all the students preparing for competitive exams.
