He has appeared in Class 12 board exams privately from MDS Public School this year and the result is awaited.
“I did regular studies, never missed the classes, kept my confidence high and cleared doubts from teachers to achieve success in JEE Mains 2017,” Veerwal, a son of a compounder, said.
“I used to study for around 5-6 hours daily apart from coaching classes and classes in school,” he added.
Veerwal said his family, teachers and Kota-based Resonance Eduventure Private Limited’s Udaipur branch helped him achieve the feat. He has been a student of the coaching institute since he was in Class 8.
“My parents looked after me well so that I do not get ill and miss studies,” he said.
His father Pushkar Lal Veerwal is a compounder at Udaipur’s Maharana Bhupal Government Hospital and his mother Pushpa Veerwal is a government school teacher. His elder brother is a medical student in AIIMS.
Veerwal, who is fond of playing cricket, badminton and music, said he has not yet decided about his career plans but wants to seek admission in IIT-Mumbai to pursue computer science.
The JEE Mains exam was held on April 2. Out of the total 10.2 lakh aspirants, around 2.20 lakh students have qualified for the JEE Advanced exam that will be held on May 21.
The AIRs were declared along with the JEE Mains results for the first time this year.
This is not the first instance that a student of Kota-based coaching institute has performed well in the JEE. Last year, three students of the city’s Allen Career’s Institute had bagged the top three AIRs in JEE Advanced exam.
