It was a rare feat for Nitin Jain of Faridabad who topped two prestigious entrance examinations - All India Engineering Entrance Examination whose results were declared on Saturday and IIT-Joint Entrance Exam--in the space of a week.

Jain, however, has decided to take admission in IIT, Delhi, using his IIT-JEE merit list.

"I was expecting the top position in AIEEE as I had done well in the test. It gives much pleasure by securing top positions in both the national level entrance examinations," an elated Nitin, a student of Modern Vidya Niketan in Faridabad, told PTI.

He said sticking to a planned schedule during preparation was the secret of his success.

Nitin said he used to study six to seven hours everyday before the exam. Good coaching can help immensely in securing a higher rank, he said.

Nitin said he owed a lot to his parents, teachers and friends for the success.
