Three Gujarat students feature in NEET's national top-50 list
It has been a tough time for MBBS students aspiring to pursue master’s degree courses. After much controversy surrounding the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) for post-graduate courses – along with the four-month delay in announcement of results - comes the good news: three students of medical colleges affiliated to Gujarat University (GU) have made it to the nationwide top 50 ranks’ list.
Keval Kanabar clinched to get the 11th rank in the all-India exam, which makes him the state topper. Divyesh Badhania secured the 29th rank in India and 2nd in Gujarat, while Ravi Shah was placed 36th in India and 3rd in the state, claim students. The NEET PG result was announced on Thursday night.
The news of finding self in the top 50 list brought smiles on the faces of the aspirants, who have dealt with a lot of ambiguity until the time of the results.
Keval told dna that his patience and hard work had paid off. “It was an ordeal. The result was delayed much but I am happy with what I got. I believe that Neet is an exam that demands clarity of basics of medical education and focuses on factual knowledge. If you work on these aspects, success is within your reach,” said Keval.
Divyesh cracked the exam during his second attempt. He completed internship after he graduated and spent a year preparing for Neet. “I used to live in hostel and used the time I got in preparing for master’s entrance exam when I was studying in under-graduate course. But it was not difficult to study for MBBS and Neet together as syllabus remains the same for both the exams and only the format changes,” he added.
