BHUBANESWAR: Debasish Panda, a student of ODM Public School, Bhubaneswar, has become the Odisha topper in the JEE Main-2021 (March Session) for paper-1, results of which were declared by the National Testing Agency (NTA) on Wednesday night.

Panda, a resident of Shree Vihar in Cuttack, has secured 99.959 NTA score out of 100. Paper I consists of BE/B Tech subjects. A total of 13 students have scored 100 NTA score in the test conducted between March 16 and March 18. Nobody from Odisha has secured the perfect 100 NTA score, official sources said.

He suggested the students, who are preparing for the examination, need to understand the basic concepts and NCERT books will help them in this matter. “The candidates should complete the tasks in time so that they can revise the courses much before the examination,” he added.

Panda said he was taking online coaching for JEE Main examination preparation. “Due to this online coaching, I was saving time for study instead of travelling for physical classes in school and coaching institutes. I may not appear for the next JEE Main examinations (April and May sessions),” he added.

He wants to be a scientist in future and conduct research in the field of physics. “I will try to get a good rank in JEE Advanced examination and pursue my higher studies in IIT,” he added.

He had appeared in the February session of JEE Main examination and secured 99.896 NTA score. Goutam Das was the Odisha topper for this session, results of which were published on March 8. Examinations were conducted in two sittings by following Covid-19 guidelines.

“After February, March, April and May Session of JEE(Main)-2021 Examination, the ranks of the candidates will be released taking into consideration the best of the four NTA Scores in accordance with the policy already made available on the NTA website,” said the official communication of NTA.

The candidates have the choice to appear in one, two, three or four examinations for admission. The results of paper-2 (B Arch or B Planning) will be released in the next few days, said the NTA sources.
