Kalpit Veerwal. You must have heard this name several times by now.
Why? Because He is a super human!
Veerwal is from Udaipur and scored 360 out of 360 which makes him first boy to score full marks in IIT JEE. He will be featured in Limca Book of records for his success under “Education Achievements” category of 2018 edition.
He is now studying Computer Science at Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay.
“I was confident of cracking the examination but didn’t expect a perfect score. Similarly, making it to the Limca Book of Records was not something I ever dreamt of,” Veerwal told PTI over phone from Mumbai. “I did not study for 15 hours a day, I did not go down the usual ‘Kota route’ for IIT preparations but consistent studies helped me a lot,” he said.
Note that, IIT aspirants! Let’s see what his father has to say?
“All we want for our children was to study at good colleges and land up jobs that could help them in easy survival. We never pressured them to come first in class, score 90%, get the top rank or bag a job that would make them millionaires.”
His father is a nurse and his mother is a government school teacher.
“Everybody suggested that we should send him to Kota or Hyderabad for coaching but we decided not to put him under any extra pressure and enrol him in an institute here. But him making a record is not something we ever expected,” his father told PTI.
Veerwal had also topped the Indian Junior Science Olympiad in class 9 and bagged the top spot in the National Talent Search Examination in Class 10.
Looks like, he has always been a genius!
