The success of Sundar Pichai has again ignited debate about ranks of IIT JEE. Very few toppers at JEE has done well later in their professional career. Sundar is also no exception. He has never been a topper. He somehow cracked IIT and could't get the branch what he had always wanted.
Sundar Pichai is from Chennai, Tamil nadu. He did his engineering from IIT Kharagpur. Later, he went to the USA for MS from Stanford University. After working for few years, he did MBA from Wharton School of Business.
Sundar joined Google in 2004, and in such a short time has become the CEO.
Naturally, people here in India are wondering about educational profile of Sundar
The most prominent question is about his All India IIT JEE rank.
Few of my students have also asked this question, but unfortunately, I am not able to give any answer.
There isn’t any information available about his IIT JEE rank. I asked one of my students who is currently studying in IIT Kharagpur, and he was also not aware of this.
Hence, we can just assume.
In one interviews, SundarPichai said that he was preparing for IIT JEE with an intention to do the course with Computer Science or Electronics. Further, he was looking forward to join IIT, Madras. But, that couldn’t happen.
He did B. Tech with Metallurgy stream. As you might know, this branch has never been hot among IIT JEE toppers. Candidates who couldn’t get mainstream branches used to opt for it.
It is quite clear by the above discussion that Sundar Pichai couldn’t get good All India Rank in IIT JEE.
However, that has not stopped him from following his dreams. He was a bright student at IIT Kgp. He got the institute’s silver medal. It was one of the professors of IIT who recommended his name to Stanford for admission and scholarship. And, because of this recommendation, he could do the course.
