“For the exam, I studied for 2 months in a relaxed manner & 20 days were focussed & interactive sessions with my Jamboree faculty, Arjun said when he was asked about his GRE preparation schedule.”

About which study material to be used, here is what the topper had to say, ”The study material I used was the books prescribed by ETS, the material provided by my coaching classes at Jamboree Education, as well as online practice tests and several other books available in the market.”

According to the Prabha Devi, president, “Arjun also gave high emphasizes on the importance of a calm manner while giving the examination, The biggest advice that I would like to give the students is to remain calm and composed during the paper, everything that you have learned will come to you, you don’t have to panic. Once you start panicking during the paper, it will only have a negative impact on your score. Have focus & unwavering attention on the question that is in front of you.”

The next target of Arjun is MIT, “For my postgraduate studies I am planning to apply to the top colleges in the U.S.A, especially the MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) and I am looking to continue in the field of Chemical Engineering that I thoroughly enjoy.”
