The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) announced the results of the Jount Entrance Examination (JEE) Main — also known as the JEE Main test on Thursday, April 26. The result includes the marks examinees have scored on JEE Main Paper 1 along with the rank.

Kalpit Veerval, who hails from Udaipur in Rajasthan, scored 360 out of 360 in the examination. His parents are from a humble background: His father is a compunder, and mother is a teacher at a government school. Kalpit is apparently the first person in the history of the examination to score full marks.
