What are JEE toppers of last five years doing now?
The Joint Entrance Examination (JEE), comprising Main and Advanced exams, is the most difficult engineering entrance exam in India. Lakhs of students appear for JEE-Advanced, the gateway to prestigious IITs, and only a few thousand manage to make the cut. However, only the topper with AIR-1 shines above the rest. Take a look at what the last five years' JEE-Advanced toppers are doing now.
Pranav Goyal, hailing from Haryana's Panchkula, emerged the topper of the JEE-Advanced in 2018. He secured a score of 337 out of 360 in the JEE-Advanced, bagging the AIR-1. Notably, he had secured AIR-4 in the 2018 JEE-Main and was the CBSE Class-12 non-medical stream topper of the Chandigarh Tricity region. Pranav is currently pursuing BTech in Computer Science Engineering (2018-22) at IIT Bombay.
In 2017, Sarvesh Mehtani from Chandigarh topped the JEE-Advanced with a score of 339 marks out of 366, securing the all-India first rank. In JEE-Advanced, he scored 120 marks in Maths, 104 in Physics, and 115 marks in Chemistry. He was ranked seventh in the JEE-Main 2017. Sarvesh is currently enrolled in the BTech program in Computer Science Engineering at IIT Bombay (2017-21).
Aman Bansal of Jaipur topped the JEE-Advanced examination in 2016. He scored 320 marks out of 372 to bag the all-India first rank in the exam. He scored 323 marks out of 360 in the 2016 JEE-Main.

Satvat Jagwani, who topped the JEE-Advanced in 2015, had secured a score of 469 marks out of a total of 504 to bag the AIR 1. Though he had enrolled in IIT-Bombay's BTech in Computer Science Engineering program in 2015, he dropped out after two years to join Bachelor of Science in Computer Science Engineering at the prestigious Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).
The 2014 JEE-Advanced topper, Chitraang Murdia of Udaipur, scored 334/360 marks to bag the all-India first rank. Notably, he scored 335/360 marks in JEE-Main and secured 97% in the Class-12 board examinations that year. In 2014, he joined BTech in Computer Science Engineering at IIT-Bombay but dropped out a year later to pursue Bachelor's Degree in Physics, which he was passionate about, at MIT.
