Also he has opted for ‘float’ as he wants to get into IIT Roorkee. Abhay said,“Since I jumped initial classes, I could complete my 12th before other students. I have been lucky to crack JEE Advanced as well. I want to be in IIT-Roorkee and hope I will get it.”
In class 12 exams Abhay had scored 87.2 percent from CBSE Board and scored 85.63 percent in class 10 from UP Board. He aspires to own a startup that will deal in products related to robotics.
Abhay’s father works as a pump attendant at Firazabad Nagar Nigam. He expressed his joy over his sons’ achievement. He said,”Abhay was always a bright mind and has brought us laurels at an early age.
