In his class 12 boards, Bose had secured 97.4 per cent. His All India Rank (AIR) is 26. he’s also has a Government of India scholarship for pure science students that’ll see him through to research — and all-India rank of 26 to Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore.

In the past few years, there are many JEE toppers who have made unusual choices. Abhinav Kumar (from Jamshedpur), didn’t join IIT and completed his BS from MIT in EECS, mathematics and physics from MIT in 2002 and did his Ph. D from Harvard. It might be easy to leave IIT to go to MIT, but Ayush Sengupta,left IIT to study mathematics at Indian Statistical Institute, Bangalore. He is currently an Assistant Professor at Princeton University.
Prashant Bhushan, who became famous during his struggle days with Anna Hazare and Arvind Kejriwal, quit IITM in the first semester to study economics then philosophy and finally law.
