Shitikanth, who hails from Patna, topped JEE conducted by IIT. "I am really happy and celebrating my success as I never expected to top," an upbeat Shitikanth said here on Friday.
Surrounded by his family, relatives and friends, Shitikanth said he was expecting that his name might figure in top ten. "It is all a result of hard work and positive surrounding, nothing else," he said.
He said that his favourite subject is Physics followed by Mathematics. "I love to study Physics all time. I have no problem in Physics, more or less the same with Maths," he said. But Chemistry, particularly Inorganic Chemistry, is a tough subject for him. "I have faced a little problem studying Chemistry," he admitted.
