Two years ago Tayde had been on the topper list in Std X as a student at Somalwar High School (Nikalas branch).
“I’m very happy with the score, but I never thought it would be the case. State Topper in the women category never crossed my mind, ”said Tayde when TOI told her about the achievement. At the time of this conversation, she could not download her result. However, her name was included on the list of heads of state compiled by the authorities.
JEE (Main) is carried out twice a year. January and April. Due to the lockdown, the April version of the test was held in September. In the January issue, Tayde had achieved 99.87 percentiles. The increase in the score now is due to various factors, she said. “We finished the curriculum ourselves in September 2019. After that, the task was to prepare for the exam and its pressure. You need to build a temper to pass the exam. The suspension obviously gave us a little more time to practice, ”said Tayde.
Dilip Vaidya, director of academics at ICAD where Tayde was trained, said: “She has already practiced more for JEE Advanced than for JEE Main. That was reflected in her confidence, which I can tell from her test analysis. ”
Your focus will now be on JEE (Advanced), the only gateway to IITs. “I didn’t choose Stream and Institut because it’s too early. It all depends on my score in the advanced exam,” said Tayde.
