Ques. Which Institutions offered you admission?
Ans. Madan Mohan Malviya University of Technology, Gorakhpur & Indraprastha Engineering College.
Ques. Did you take Coaching Classes? If yes, how did they help you to prepare better?
Ans. I did my 12th in 2004, after that, I started preparing for IIT in Kota, Rajasthan. At that time, Engineering was like madness, and Kota is like mini India. I prepared my coaching from Bansal classes and secured IIT PRE also. After that, I cleared Vellore Institute of Technology also.
But that was too far, so I got admission in Indraprastha Engineering College. At that time it was in top 10 in UP. In coaching classes, they exactly teach you which is necessary, so to give your knowledge a direction and change your thinking.
It was a nice experience. But these days many institutes are there and many of them have no experience. So check the history and faculty before getting admission into institutes. Be on time, don’t be late so you get admission on time.

Ques. Physics: Mention the Strategy and Books Followed for this section.
Ans. For physics lots of books are there but try to make class notes and don't try to read many books, you will only get confused and nothing else. For physics NCERT books are good and you can choose few IIT Books for preparation like IIT Physics by Khanna. But your class notes give you more strength than anything else.
Ques. Chemistry: Mention the Strategy and Books Followed for this section
Ans. There are 3 parts in Chemistry: Organic, Inorganic and Physical. Organic chemistry requires more practice as it is scoring and it is the main part of chemistry. You can follow books of organic chemistry by Dr. O.P. Tondon and IIT chemistry for JEE by Khanna. Class Notes plays very important role.
Ques. Mathematics: Mention the Strategy and Books Followed for this section.
Ans. For Mathematics there are many books. Maths is scoring subject and it needs lots of practice, and there is no shortcut for Maths.
But Katariyas Katson maths is good and for practice IIT preparation books are good. You can solve last years’ UPSEE Sample Papers, books of Arihant also good but don't trust answers of Arihant. Rest CBSE class books also sufficient.
Ques. What are the things you would like to go back in time and change to get into a better college?
Ans. At the time of counseling, choosing a good college is a real must. Because when you get admission and complete your studies, many things change. So, college plays an important role in placement. Select college on the basis of last years’ record such as placement records and etc. If I would be given any chance to do so, I would have selected Government College.
