While speaking about preparation strategy for JEE Main, Dhruv said:

“I took admission in Catalyser’s two-year programme to crack JEE Main examination where I took mock tests and attempted previous years’ question paper.”

Talking about Class 12 Boards and JEE Main preparation, Dhruv said, “In Class 12 Board Examination and JEE Main, questions are based on NCERT only, therefore I did not study separately.”

JEE Main topper found Chemistry toughest of all:

While commenting on the level of difficulty of JEE Main 2019, Dhruv said:

“In the examination, I found the chemistry questions a bit tricky and tough to solve. Actually, the problem is that in chemistry one has to remember alot of chemical equations as compared to maths and physics.”

“Moreover, it depends on person-to-person,” the topper added.

More on the educational qualification:

A student of Catalyser, Dhruv Arora took the Bhabha Atomic Research Centre and IAPT’s prestigious Physics Olympiad Examination.

Family background:

Dhruv’s father is a manager at a pharmaceutical company in Madhya Pradesh while his mother passed away two years back. Further, his younger brother is completing the schooling.

Topper shares success mantra:

“Just attempt maximum number of previous year question papers. It is important for a candidate to build his/her concentration as we usually tend to get bored while preparing for JEE Examination,” Dhruv said.
