2024: Pranavanand Saji - A testimony to perseverance

This year, Saji, an Indian High School student, stood as the JEE Advanced Overseas Topper attaining an AIR of 101 with a score of 300/360

"I got to know about JEE towards the end of 10th Grade and joined Ascentria at the beginning of 11th after hearing about them from my school. I knew it would be difficult to manage preparing seriously for JEE alongside regular school but gradually I was spending more and more time on the exam. The teachers at Ascentria were very supportive and focused on covering the syllabus, improving my scores in the mock tests, and continuously helping me improve my performance. I kept on working with the hope that my efforts wouldn't go in vain. I never expected to get such a great rank in JEE Mains and Advanced and I'm thrilled to see that my hard work and the support from my family and teachers at Ascentria has allowed me to achieve my goal."

Dr Preyusha Saji, Saji's mother says: "Pranav's determination, punctuality and discipline led to his success in JEE. Since his early school days, he has always been independent and completed his work on time. He was completely dedicated towards JEE, and also focused on many factors which would affect his performance like getting a good sleep and maintaining a good diet".

Saji Anand, his father, says: "Since his childhood, he used to always be competitive and tried to do his best in whatever he is interested in. In such a competitive environment, I found that he enjoyed not only gaining a deeper understanding of the subjects but also the competition, and gradually he was able to do better and come out with a great score and rank."

Earlier this year, Saji etched his name in the annals of JEE Main history by clinching the title of 'outside India topper,' with a remarkable score of 100 percentile. Hailing from Dubai, Saji's journey to success is marked by unwavering determination, resilience, and a relentless pursuit of excellence. Despite achieving a near-perfect 99.99 per cent on his first attempt, Saji embarked on a journey of self-improvement, epitomising the spirit of continuous learning and growth. His dedication, coupled with Ascentria's unparalleled guidance and support, propelled him towards the pinnacle of success, securing an overall rank of 31 in one of the world's toughest examinations.

Saji's journey is not merely a testament to his academic prowess but also a reflection of his unwavering commitment to maintaining balance, consistency, and composure amidst challenges. His determination to excel, coupled with Ascentria's holistic approach to coaching, underscores the institute's transformative impact on shaping the destinies of aspiring engineers.

2020: Srinivas Chaudhury - A Journey of Triumph

In 2020, Srinivas Chaudhury emerged as the UAE topper for JEE Mains and Advanced, solidifying his place in IIT Madras. His journey of triumph not only exemplifies academic excellence but also highlights the transformative impact of Ascentria's coaching on shaping the future leaders of tomorrow. While with Ascentria since his 11th grade, he decided to focus on the JEE only in his 12th grade. Srinivas found himself faced with the daunting task of covering the extensive syllabus of both the 11th and 12th grades within a limited timeframe. Ascentria provided continuous guidance, resources, and support to navigate through the rigorous demands of the examination.

One of the key elements of Srinivas's success story is Ascentria's structured approach to preparation. By conducting regular tests in the pattern of the JEE Advanced, Ascentria ensured that Chaudhury was well-equipped to face the final examination with confidence. Their simulated All India Test Series not only familiarized him with the exam format but also helped him gauge his progress and identify areas that required further improvement.

Moreover, Chaudhury emphasizes the significance of the resource material provided by Ascentria in his preparation process. The comprehensive study material offered by the institute not only covered the entirety of the JEE syllabus but also provided valuable insights, tips, and strategies to tackle different types of questions effectively. This rich repository of resources served as a cornerstone of Srinivas's preparation, providing him with the necessary tools and knowledge to excel in the examination.

As Chaudhury continues to pursue his academic endeavours at IIT Madras, his success story stands as a testament to the transformative impact of dedicated preparation and the invaluable support provided by institutions like Ascentria. Through its structured approach, comprehensive resources, and unwavering commitment to student success, Ascentria continues to empower students like Srinivas to realize their full potential and achieve academic excellence.

As we reflect on Ascentria's trail of brilliance in producing JEE toppers, it becomes evident that the institute has the longest legacy of sending students to leading IITs in the last decade of being operational in the UAE.

Alka Malik, founder and managing director, Ascentria speaks passionately of her commitment to providing students of the UAE with the best opportunity for the highest academic excellence and admission to leading colleges in the world, not just IIT and AIIMS, but also Ivy League universities, NUS/NTU and much more. "Students abroad need a teaching method tailored to the demands of the region. Cookie-cutting an Indian approach does not work for students here as international students are very different from students based in India. The students here need to excel in school as well and keep options open for applications internationally simultaneously. It's our goal to ensure that we help our students to achieve this seamlessly".

Ascentria continues to inspire and empower the next generation of engineers, shaping the future of the global engineering landscape. As we celebrate the achievements of Ascentria's JEE toppers, let us also acknowledge the institute's profound influence in shaping the destinies of aspiring engineers and fostering a culture of excellence that knows no bounds.
