Shivansh Joshi hails from Ramnagar, Uttarakhand. According to resources, he completed his 12th from Little Flower School in Kashipur, with a jaw-dropping percentage of 96.8%. His merit was once again proved when he cracked the extremely difficult JEE Advanced.
It is obvious that his parents are proud of him due to his excellent performance in previous examinations as well as topping NDA. Shivansh’s life took a completely new turn when the results for NDA were declared on November 24th and the merit list on the next day displayed his name in the rank 1 position.

Shivansh Joshi hails from such a background where his father Sanjeev Joshi is an employee of LIC and his mother, Tanuja Joshi works as a teacher in a government primary school. His parents revealed their extent of surprise when they saw their child topping the most prestigious examination of the country. It is quite obvious that Shivansh did not need any extra guidance as he received the same from his mother.
In some interviews, Shivansh has revealed his urge to join the Indian Army. He respects the job and expects that he will do justice to the position achieved. According to resources, Shivansh has scored a total of 1026 out of 1800 marks in NDA exam.

How did Shivansh achieve his dream?

According to resources, Shivansh continued to aspire and prepare to crack NDA, even when he was pursuing Engineering at NIT Trichy. According to him, maintaining a routine is the most the important factor to succeed in life.
He stated that he used to study for a minimum of three hours every day and simultaneously, he used to balance his love for football and other activities. Like other students, he had a desire to buy a smart-phone but had enough self-control to keep away from such distractions.
Shivansh also stated that it is not difficult to crack NDA examination if a candidate has the proper intent for it. Of course, along with intent, one needs to put in efforts. The syllabus for JEE and 12th boards examination is quite similar. However, the syllabus for NDA differs, making it important to dedicate enough time for its preparation.
Shivansh’s father expressed his desire for his younger son to join the Defense services as well. Although Shivansh Joshi did not have an Army background, his determination and his desire led him to the way of success.

This wonder boy has now decided to leave his Engineering course which he was pursuing in NIT Trichy so as to serve the nation. Shivansh has indeed become the role model for those aspiring to serve the country and has made them believe that if one puts in enough efforts, it is not difficult to make your dreams come true.
