Aman Bansal Success Interview:
First we are congratulating you for your outstanding performance in JEE Advanced 2016! How you are going to celebrate your success?
Aman Bansal: Thanks! It is really very surprising for me. I do not know even how can I celebrate this success. But I will spend time with my parents and friends who have helped me a lot throughout the preparation.
Were you sure of cracking the prestigious JEE Advanced 2016 exam? What was your schedule?
Aman Bansal: No I was not very sure to achieve first rank. I was just doing my best. I did not have a tight routine. Rather I used to fix daily/weekly targets and tried to achieve as much as possible. This I used to do throughout the 12 months of preparation to keep myself on track for finishing the syllabus in quick time and revision subsequently.
Do you love maths and chemistry?
Yes. I had scored 98 per cent marks in Class 12 with 100 per cent marks in Chemistry and 99 per cent marks in Mathematics.
Tell us about the difficulty level of JEE Advanced 2016 exam?
Aman Bansal: Level of questions in JEE Main examination remains more or less same every yearI had prepared myself for difficult questions well before the exam so it really did not bother me whether questions are tough or easy.
IIT Preparation is not that much easy….people go through lots of struggle. What have your learned? What is the wisdom of life and competition? What is your message to the new aspirants?
Aman Bansal: Try to give your best and you will succeed one day. Never get bogged down by the facts that you are from rural/poor background. Its only hard work that matters and nothing else.
What was your score in JEE Main Paper 1 and Paper 2? Which one do you think was tougher Mains or Advanced?
Aman Bansal: I have scored 323 in JEE Main and in JEE Advance, my score was 320 out of 372. Between Mains and Advanced- none was tough for me. But if I had to choose, I would say that Mains had many complicated questions compared to Advanced. I found advanced easier for me. Also, Mains was lengthier than the Advanced paper.
How did you make it possible? What was your preparation strategy and routine study period for JEE Advanced?
Aman Bansal: All I had to do was revise whatever they would teach me and do my homework for the class. I studied for eight hours daily apart from attending coaching classes. I put all my energy and hard work in cracking this exam. I handled stress and pressure from studies very calmly.
Did you go through mock tests?
Yes, I even took lot of mock tests. Mock tests do help in sensitizing you for the ultimate day.
What do you think? Which subject was easy for you and which subject seemed tough for you?
Aman Bansal: Physics and Mathematics were my favourtie subjects so I cannot divide which subject was tougher or easier for me. I was rather enjoying solving questions.
Which IIT do you want to join? Also, have you decided upon your area of specialization?
Aman Bansal: Well, I will opt to join for IIT Bombay. I am thinking about taking up Computer science as my specialization.
