Tamil Nadu Engineering Admission: Coimbatore girl tops rank list but wants to continue pursuing BSc chemistry

COIMBATORE: Coimbatore girl Keerthana Ravi, 18, topped the rank list for Tamil Nadu Engineering Admission (TNEA) released by Anna University on Thursday.
Interestingly, Keerthana, who passed out last year, said while she was happy that she had been ranked first, she didn’t want to pursue engineering. “I am pursuing BSc chemistry in St Stephen’s College, New Delhi. I will continue to pursue that,” she told TOI.

Keerthana said she had applied for TNEA as she had an idea to shift. “But as of now, i have no interest in engineering,” she said.

A resident of Saibaba Colony in the city, Keerthana said she studied in BSS Gurukulam in Palakkad. She had scored 1200 out of 1200 in her Kerala board exams. As she was a resident of Coimbatore, she was able to apply for Tamil Nadu engineering admissions, she said.

Keerthana said she had scored full marks in all the subjects she had chosen – physics, chemistry, biology, maths, English and Sanskrit.

Keerthana’s father, A S Ravi, is an engineer and her mother, Balambika Ravi, is the principal of the BSS B Ed Training College, Palakkad.

 used to travel to my school in Palakkad daily with my mother who used to drive to her college,” said Keerthana.
While today parents want their children to pursue professional courses, how did Keerthana’s parents allow her to choose a pure science course despite her scoring well in board exams? “It was my decision at the end, and my parents don’t have any problem with it,” she said.
