Arushi:Thanks a lot. I was so surprised when I got to know that I am among the top ten rankers in both the exams. I celebrated this victory with my parents and teachers because of whom I could perform well.
Careers360: Tell us how you prepared for the tests? Which books did you refer to during the preparation phase?
Arushi: My childhood dream of becoming a successful doctor kept me motivated during all the ups and downs of my preparation. Whenever I sat down for studies, I made sure that I do it with complete dedication. I avoided all kinds of distractions including social media as well. Also, I was not able to spend time with my friends as studies kept me busy. But I realise now that all this sacrifice and my hard work has finally paid so well.
As far as books are concerned, I referred to NCERT for all subjects. I also studied from HC Verma for Physics and Shri Balaji Publications for Chemistry preparation.
Careers360: Did you have any schedule? How much time did you give to your studies?
Arushi: Yes, I did. I used to study for 10-12 hours daily, and that too with complete attention.
Careers360: Tell us what made you choose medicine as your profession?
Arushi: Since my childhood, I have been fascinated with the medical profession and dreamt of entering this field. When I was studying in higher classes, I was sure that I wanted to make my career in this field. Moreover, Biology always made me curious about the workings of the body. Medicine is a natural choice for me.
Careers360: What you did to manage your stress level during studies?
Arushi: Whenever I got tired after long hours of studies, I used to listen to soothing songs. This helped me a lot in relaxing my mind.
Careers360: Tell us something about your family. How did your parents support you during your preparation?
Arushi: Both my parents are government employees. I have an elder brother who is pursuing electrical engineering from IIT, Mandi. All of them were very supportive throughout the preparation phase. Whenever I felt low, their inspirational talks helped me in giving my best shot.
Careers360: Please share your message for future medical aspirants.
Arushi: I want to advise all aspirants to be happy throughout their preparation period. Never get distracted and always remember that 100% sincere efforts are required in order to achieve your goal of getting admission in a prestigious institute. Just enjoy your studies and give your best.

Sir I have no right hand and I am left handed should I eligible to apply for neet
under Physical Disability, locomotor disability, visual impairment, hearing impairment and Speech and Language disability are the conditions eligible for PWD reservation. Now your Locomotor disability should not exceed 70% for being able to claim PWD reservation Loss of right hand mounts to 50% disability. And so you are technically eligible for appearing in NEET as right hand is not your dominant hand as per what you have said in your question and also claiming PWD reservation. Now, this is the general information .medical counselling keeps making changes over the years regarding PWD reservation And so we would suggest you to reach out to NTA at their helpdesk at:
Hope this helps
from general category I have scored 99 marks in biology, 37 in chemistry & 36 in my 12 board exam will i face any problem in neet counseling or in admission process?
Abhishek, to be eligible for NEET, you should have completed your 12th, passed in all subjects and secure a minimum aggregate of 50% in Physics, Chemistry and Biology. It is 50% for General Category, 45% for PWD and 40% for OBC,SC,ST. This 50% is inclusive of the Theory and Practical marks scored in Physics, Chemistry and Biology collectively. You needn't score 50% in Physics, 50% in Chemistry and 50% in Biology separately. You need an aggregate of 50% or 40% depending on your Category as an aggregate in Physics, Chemistry and Biology. And along with Physics, Chemistry and Biology, you should also have studied English as one of the core subjects in your 12th. If your marks are both Theory and Practicals combined and your over all result is Pass in each subject and as well overall, then you are eligible for NEET. Or else unfortunately you are not eligible and you may have to reappear for those subjects which you haven't passed.
