Gargi Bakshi: Nashik girl bags perfect JEE score, Vashi boy twins feat in Mumbai | Mumbai News – Times of India

Mumbai

MUMBAI: Gargi bakshi (18) moved to Mumbai from Nashik two years ago for better coaching facilities. Her decision to move cities paid off as she emerged as one of the toppers in the second phase of JEE (Main).
The results were announced on Wednesday night. Bakshi and another student from Delhi are probably among the very few girls to bag a perfect score in JEE (Main).
Vashi’s Atharva Tambat (18) too bagged the perfect 100 in the second phase. Both students attempted the test for the second time after falling short of their desired score in the first attempt in February. JEE (Main) will be conducted four times this year. Bakshi and Tambat are among the 13 students in the country to score 100 percentile in the March exam.
Tambat, a student of Ryan International School in Sanpada, scored 99.97 percentile in February. “I was not happy with my Chemistry scores and the next exam was scheduled in just 20 days. So, I brushed up on my chemistry and attempted the test again,” he said. He scored full marks in all three subjects in the second attempt. Though he is keen on joining an IIT, he has not made up his mind on the branch of engineering. His father is an engineer and mother a homemaker. He took a break of two years from his interests in table tennis and drawing.
Bakshi, too, like Tambat, was unhappy with her Chemistry scores and decided to attempt again. Her father, oral surgeon Dr Makarand Bakshi said, “Her grandmother stayed in Dadar, so we had an option.” Gargi, a student of Pace Junior Science College, Dadar, is keen on pursuing computer science from IIT-Bombay and like Tambat is now focused on the preparation for JEE (Advanced). Both her parents are dentists.
