electronic communication engineer.
Son of a farmer in Basti, Aayush Ojha has done his schooling
from Lucknow. He acquired ninth position in SEE. "My aim is to get into either
IITs or NIITs. As colleges in UP offer less facilities, those colleges would be
my last preference," said Aayush who wants to specialize in either electrical or
mechanical. He scored 250 marks in JEE mains and 335 in BITSAT. Bhavya Bandaru
topped the SEE for BTEch in the girls category.
