IIT JEE Topper 2009 Nitin Jain

“Sometimes I feel like laughing out loud at people who say I am a genius, superhuman, and a master of science and mathematics.

It is my good fortune that I developed an interest in studies from the very beginning of school, understood the significance of time management early on, and received unconditional support from the right people at the right time.
Moreover, what people call ‘hard work’ is actually a synonym for ‘smart work’.

Like any other student, the tension, the eagerness, the anxiety, and the fear of the unknown have always been there in me too, but a consistently positive frame of mind and an unstinting faith in myself have kept me going.”
