SPARKLING PERFORMANCE BY SUMITH IN JEE-ADVANCED 2014 Topper in Karnataka – All India Rank (AIR) – 38

Sumith, a student of CFAL (Centre for advanced learning) based in Kuntikan, Mangalore has performed extraordinarily well to achieve what every engineering aspirant in India dreams of :  the top rank in the most prestigious engineering entrance examination in India  i.e. JEE Advanced by scoring ALL INDIA RANK                (AIR) – 38. Sumith is the topper of Karnataka.  With this result, Sumith’s dream of studying computer science at IIT Mumbai is realized.

History is being made in Mangalore by Sumith! This has happened for the first time in the history of Mangalore that a student of our region has performed extremely well in the JEE Advanced examination. Never before has such a high rank been obtained by anyone in the Dakshina Kannada and Udupi districts.


Sumith, son of M. Babu and Aruna, is an achiever in true sense.  A student of II PUC at Sharada PUC, Sumith, has proved his academic talent much before.

  1. Sumith had scored 320 out of 360 marks in the JEE-Main 2014 examination to emerge as topper in the districts of coastal Karnataka. (The rank list of JEE Main is yet to be announced).
  2. Sumith has secured 3rd rank in the Karnataka CET 2014 (Engineering stream).
  3. He has also secured ALL INDIA RANK- 7 in the scholarship exam KVPY, as a result of which he has already secured admission in the Indian Institute of Science Bangalore.
  4. In the International Physics and Chemistry Olympiads he was among the top 38 in the country as a result he has already secured a seat at the prestigious Chennai Mathematical Institution.
  5. Also, he has scored 100 in Mathematics, Chemistry, Statistics and 99% in Physics in the recently declared PUC 2014 results.

Including Sumith, a total of 13 students from CFAL have been assigned ranks in JEE-Advanced and are eligible to take seats at IIT’s or other centrally funded institutes admitting students through JEE-Advanced results.

The JEE Advanced exam is the gateway to admissions for the prestigious Indian Institutes of Technology and at ISM Dhanbad. A total of 9,784 seats are available across the various IITs and ISM Dhanbad. .

About 13.57 lakh students appeared for the exam across the country in the first stage of the exam i.e. JEE Main. Only the top 1,50,000 candidates, based on their scores in paper-I of JEE (Main) 2014, were eligible to appear in JEE (Advanced) 2014 which was  conducted on May 25th.

In the past, selections in competitive exams like IIT-JEE in the Mangalore region were abysmal. That is there was a general opinion that these exams are extremely difficult. So for engineering, CET or AIEEE was the only other choice.

This achievement by our student shows that our children in Mangalore have the high caliber required for excelling in National level examinations. What they need is the right information and the right tools.


CFAL has brought about notable development in the students by innovative totalitarian development in students by our extraordinary training system right from high school days. The development consists of rigorous  class room training, unique course material, customized tests and mock exams. We have experienced and dedicated professors to mentor the students and also the course material is unique and tailor-made for all the professional entrance examinations including JEE, AIEEE, CET and BITSAT. Constant monitoring and individual attention to students has contributed to this phenomenal success.
