The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) released the results of the JEE Main exam on Thursday. The exam was held on April 2 in offline mode and on April 8 and April 9 in the online mode, across 113 cities in the country. Out of the total 11.86 lakh aspirants for Paper I, around 2.20 lakh students managed to qualify for the JEE Advanced exam scheduled for May 21.

The cut-off for the general category is 81, which is lower than the predicted cut-offs (95-105) depending on last year’s cut-off for the general category (100).

For the first time, the All India Ranks (AIRs) were declared along with the JEE Main results. Kalpit Veerwal from Udaipur scored a perfect 360 with AIR 1. Nashik’s Vrunda Rathi stood first among the girls in the exam.

Veerwal, whose father Pushkarlal, works as a compounder has appeared for his Class 12 boards from MDS Public School in Kota. “We are extremely happy with his success, and we are looking forward to his success in the Advanced exams,” said his  mother, Pushpa.

Rathi, a student of Nashik’s Loknete Vyankatrao Hiray Arts, Science and Commerce, and IITian’s Pace, said she is now looking forward to a career in research.
