Over 1.5 lakh candidates qualified to appear for the JEE-Advanced test out of 13 lakh. Saurabh Pinjani, a student of the two-year integrated programme from FIITJEE Bangalore Centre, was one of the toppers from Karnataka with a score of 325 out of 360. “I am happy as well as relieved at having scored well in the JEE Main.
