Sreemanti Dey, a Class-XII student of Delhi Public School Ruby Park, has topped the state in the JEE (Main) examination — with 99.9 percentile score. The results were published on Friday. The news was, however, not unexpected for her family as she has always topped her class since her days at South Point High School. She is now gearing up for IIT-JEE (advanced) that will determine her rank and entry to the coveted Indian Institute of Technology.
Determined to be a computer science engineer, Sreemanti also wants to pursue management after completing graduation. “She aims to be the CEO of a company. It is her dream,” her mother Susmita, a homemaker, said.
The proud mother added, “She was a school topper till Class X and again in Class XI when we transferred her to the new school. She loves to study.”
Apart from studying, Sreemanti spends her time reading storybooks. “Be it fiction or autobiography, she loves them all,” Susmita said. The state JEE (Main) topper is, however, down with fever at present. “I have already started my preparations and I’m confident to do well in the next examination. My dream is to get an opportunity to study at IIT-Bombay in my favourite department,” Sreemanti said.
The Dhakuria resident took tuitions in physics, chemistry and mathematics. “She studied English and computer science on her own and was assisted by her school teachers,” Susmita said.
The JEE (Main) for BE/BTech was conducted by the National Testing Agency (NTA) between January 7 and 9 in two shifts each day at 570 examination centres across 233 cities in the country and abroad. A total of 9,21,261 candidates were registered for BE/BTech in the examination.
