Jugad Singh Grewal, a 19-year-old science student from Ludhiana, has left engineers across India stumped.

The teenager has become the first student from a non-engineering background to score a 100 percentile in the Common Management Admission Test (CMAT) exam.

Grewal, the son of a farmer from Punjab, is a final year BSc student at the Government College Ludhiana.

The teen sat for CAT 2015, and scored 64 percentile in the examination.

Shiksha.com reports that Grewal was disappointed after his results, and decided to adopt a stress-free approach to tackle his CMAT.

Among his choice of higher education institutes are KJ Somaiya Institute of Management Studies and Research, and the Sydenham Institute of Management Studies, Research and Entrepreneurship Education.

When asked about how he prepared for the exam, Grewal told Shiksha.com that he studied for four hours a day and also focused on brushing up his General Knowledge.

The national-level entrance examination was conducted by the All India Council for Technical Education on 17 January.
