JEE Main 2022: Girl topper Palli Jalajakshi shares top spot with friend Menda Hima Vamsi
JEE Main 2022 Toppers: In the JEE Main 2022 results announced today, Andhra Pradesh’s Palli Jalajakshi has emerged as one of the toppers by securing the 100 percentile. Jalajakshi is sharing her spot with another girl topper Sneha Pareek and 22 male toppers, all of whom have secured one percentile. With this, a total of 24 students have secured a perfect score on the overall merit list.
Jalajakshi secured 99.98 percentile in the first session and a full mark by appearing again in session 2. “I was confident about my preparation and hence started preparing for JEE Advanced immediately after giving JEE Main exam. I expected to score 100 percent but the result turned out to be special as my friend Menda Hima Vamsi also topped the exam,” Jalajakshi said.
Both Palli Jalajakshi and Menda Hima Vamsi are classmates at Sri Chaitanya Junior College, Vijayawada. “I joined the school in class 8 and have been preparing for JEE Main exam since then. My father Govindrao Palli is a government school teacher and my inspiration to do engineering. While our classes were disrupted due to COVID-19, we had to switch to online coaching. My father made sure that I did not face any trouble in my preparation and motivated me during that phase,” shared the topper.
Like other JEE toppers, Jalajakshi wants to join IIT Bombay to pursue BTech Computer Science, but her professional aspirations are different from others. She wants to give the civil services exam after graduation and work for the digitization of the country.
When asked why she chose engineering over other humanities subjects, she said, “As per my knowledge about the exam, the success rate in UPSC Civil Services is very low. So, I want to make sure that my future is secure. If not civil service, I will take another job.”
