New Delhi : Kavya Chopra from Delhi has created history by scoring a perfect 300 score in the Engineering Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) Exam. She has got 99.9 percentile in her February attempt, results for which were announced yesterday.

The National Testing Agency (NTA) had yesterday announced the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) Mains March result on its official NTA website – jeemain.nta.nic.in. Despite her 99.9 percentile, Kavya had appeared for the March exam.

Speaking to News18 on why she decided to appear for the second JEE Mains attempt in March after getting a 99.9 percentile score in the February session, she said, "I was not satisfied with it and I knew I could do better."

She also thanked her parents for continuous support and no discrimination between her and her brother.

Even though I have never been discriminated against myself, I am aware of what other girls go through. I might not be able to understand the gravitas of my feat now but I am grateful,” Kavya told News18.
