"It started with a feeling of humanity, we see people around who do not get the treatment that they need because of money. So I want to help such people in whatever way I can."

Tanmay Gupta AIR-1 (NEET 2021 topper)

This NEET topper thinks that if someone understands the concepts, the NEET preparation would be very easy for them. He created history by securing a perfect 720 out of 720 in the NEET medical entrance exam by securing a percentile of 99.999806 scores.
Devote 8 hours in self-studies: During coaching classes last year, I used to study for approximately 4-5 hours. And when I had no coaching classes, I used to devote 8 hours to my self-study.
NEET preparation tips during last month: In the last month, I was more focused to giving more NEET mock tests for the full syllabus. It was NCERT text book revision and giving mock tests. While in the earlier days, I used to prepare through NCERT text books and revision notes provided by the teachers. In the last few days, my focus shifted to taking as many NEET mock tests as possible.
Soyeb Aftab AIR 1 NEET 2020
The topper from Odisha stunned everyone when he scored full marks in India's single largest medical entrance exam. Soyeb outsmarted over 15 lakh candidates to secure AIR 1 in NEET 2020. He believes that her consistent hard work helped him to achieve success. "I had a clear plan in my mind from the very beginning as to how I will study for the exam. I divided my time for different chapters ranging from one to two hours per chapter. I prepared from the very beginning for the boards and NEET simultaneously so that I did not have to face any exam stress and tension." he said.
NCERT Books are the key to a strong foundation: Soyeb also emphasised on strengthening basic concepts by thoroughly studying from the NCERT core books. He continuously studied for seven to eight hours from NCERT books. He believed that following a regular schedule and intensely studying from the NCERT books played a major role in his success in the medical entrance exams.
Advice to aspirants: Asking him about one advice which he wants to give to the future NEET 2021 aspirants, he said " "My suggestion to the future aspirants is to first study from the NCERT books and complete the syllabus for all the subjects. After that for Physics just study from one good book but solve a lot of multiple-choice questions. At no point of time, one should feel dejected or demotivated if they have not scored well. Take failure as a stepping stone towards success."

AIR 2 Akanshsha Singh NEET 2020
UP's Akanksha Singh too scored full marks in NEET 2020, however, due to the age factors she was given AIR 2. Akanksha always wanted to become a doctor at the prestigious All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS). Since, there was no big coaching institute in her town- Kushinagar, she used to travel for four hours to study at an institute in Gorakhpur. After completing Class 10, she shifted to Delhi to prepare for NEET.
Regular studies: According to Akanksha, the only strategy to crack NEET, is to stay calm and study regularly followed by small breaks. While preparing for NEET, she devoted 10 to 12 hours daily to self-study, followed by her institute’s study material. Her study schedule included understanding the concepts, solving the problem and analysing the mistakes.
Keeping yourself motivated: According to this NEET 2020 topper, keeping yourself motivated while preparing for a tough exam like this is extremely vital. Also, unlike many students who wanted the exam to postponed, Akanksha believes the lockdown period gave her extra time to revise her notes, or else balancing the board exam along with entrance test preparation was a task.
