Careers360 – Congratulations! You have got AIR 7 in NEET 2017. What was your reaction when you got to know about your achievement?
Kanishh - Thank you! I am really happy and excited about achieving AIR 7 in NEET 2017. It is beyond my expectations and when I got to know the NEET 2017 result, I could not believe it. I actually was not aware that NEET result 2017 has been announced as there are network issues where I stay. I came to know about the results from my teacher and friends only.
Careers360 – Were you expecting this score or rank in NEET 2017?
Kanishh – No, actually I was not expecting more than 680 as per my exam analysis. Also, my teachers at Allen Kota had told me that my NEET score 2017 could be between 640 – 650 only. So, this is a bit surprising but at the same time very exciting for me.
Careers360 – What is the reaction of your family and relatives?
Kanishh – They are super excited as I am the first one to pursue medicine from my family. My relatives, family friends and acquaintances have been calling ever since the results were been announced this morning. My family is celebrating and distributing sweets to the entire locality.
Careers360 – Tell us about your family background.
Kanishh – My father, Mr Vinod Tayal, owns a shop of seeds and fertilisers in our locality. Actually, this is the only business my family has been involved in and is running for a long time. My entire family, be it my elder brothers, grandparents, my father, my aunts and uncles, all have been very supportive of my choice to go for NEET preparation at Allen Institute Kota.
Careers360 – What motivated you to pursue medicine as a career?
Kanishh – I wanted to do something different from my family business. I felt that I could do it by pursuing a career in medicine. So, I rigorously studied to achieve this. I used to take mock tests in Class 10 and 11 and would obtain around 440-450 scores. This made me confident that I would be able to crack NEET.
Careers360 – Please share with us your academic background. What was your class 12 score?
Kanishh – I have completed my Class 10 and Class 12 under CBSE board education pattern. My scores - Class 10: CGPA 10; Class 12: 95.8% marks.
Careers360 – How is your sectional score in NEET 2017?
Kanishh – My sectional scores in NEET 2017 are – Physics: 180, Biology: 336 and Chemistry: 175.
Careers360 – What kept you going through NEET preparation stage?
Kanishh – When I started preparing in Class 10, the only thing I would think about is how I would make my family proud. Even though a few acquaintances would demotivate my family members by telling stories about student suicides and other things in Kota, my family trusted and supported me. The faith and support from my family helped me to keep focussed on preparation only.
Careers360 – How was the environment at Allen Institute, Kota? Do you think Coaching Institutes are essential for cracking exams like NEET, AIIMS MBBS?
Kanishh - I felt that Allen Institute Kota could be preferred more for its competitive environment than studies. Students can crack exams with self-studies too but the competition which Allen Kota provided was very much helpful for me. There is a constant urge to be in the list of toppers.
The institute makes a separate group for Special Rankers Group, of which I was a part too. These SRG students are coached separately for their extraordinary class performances. I never needed to go beyond the preparation module that my teachers provided for NEET preparation.
Careers360 – During your NEET preparation, what sports or activities kept you rejuvenated?
Kanishh – Actually during the preparations, I hardly got time to participate in sports activities. I really like to play cricket but in Class 10, I gave up playing the game as I needed to put more time in preparation. Also, I could not afford to spend hours watching television or movies as it strains my eyes. However, I enjoy short TV serials with family. My only break from preparation included family time on the phone or spending time with friends at mess and hostel.
Careers360 – Besides NEET 2017, which other medical entrance exam did you appear in? How was your experience and scores of those exams?
Kanishh – I appeared in AIIMS MBBS 2017 in which I got AIR 132 and AIR 216 in JIPMER MBBS 2017. I was not that focused on any other entrance exam than NEET 2017 as I wanted to get admission at medical colleges in Delhi only.
Careers360 – Why do you want to join Maulana Azad Medical College? Which specialisation do you want to pursue in medicine?
Kanishh – Maulana Azad Medical College is the best choice for me because I want to pursue MBBS from Delhi only as it near to my hometown. I want to specialise in cardiology.
Careers360 – What books did you refer to for you NEET 2017 preparation?
Kanishh – The primary books preferred for NEET preparation were NCERT books. Also, I would refer to Author Pradeep's books besides study material provided by the coaching institute.
Careers360 – Do you think aspirants preparing for self-studies could crack NEET? Please share your suggestions on NEET preparation for medical aspirants.
Kanishh - Yes. I think with well-planned strategies, any student can crack NEET exam. They need to be patient and believe in themselves. The only thing students can do is to put their best efforts for the exam. Trust and support from parents is also very important during NEET preparation. Students must not take pressure and keep a flexible schedule for their preparation.

Now iam doing my bsc operation theatre and Anaesthesia technology in chennai. I want to study mbbs after this what Is the process after writing neet? And iam middle class family in Phillipines they are saying it BS AND MD (MBBS). If I completed my bsc and whether I need to study 5 yrs?
Abhishek, there is no bridge course or a short cut after studying B.Sc. NEET remains the entrance examination for admission to MBBS. And 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. Now if you belong to OBC Category, the Category you belong to should be also listed in the Central OBC list. Or else you will be considered as General Category and so you have to secure a minimum aggregate of 50% in Physics, Chemistry and Biology. 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. After NEET results have been declared and the merit list has been released the Registration process opens. All the 15% of All India Quota Seats except for Jammu and Kashmir, 100% Seats at Deemed and Central Universities, IP Quota seats in ESIC Colleges, Seats at AFMC, AIIMS and JIPMER are filled by DGHS. Now this is the firs time that AIIMS and JIPMER are conducting their admissions through NEET score and the admissions will happen through All India Counselling. And All India Counselling happens in 2 rounds and a Mop up round. AIIMS and JIPMER will not fall under Mop up round probably and so ideally the seats will be filled through Round 1 and Round 2. Once NTA releases NEET results and the Merit list is released, the DGHS on behalf of the MCI will release the counselling process. And you have to register for Counselling process by paying refundable and non refundable fees. The fees will be conveyed at that point in time. Once you fill in the registration application, the choice filling and locking option also will open up. You can fill as many options as you want The seats are allotted on the basis of merit and preference. This is where you ensure you pick the right choices in the right manner. To help you during admission and counselling, we have https://www.careers360.com/mbbs-companion . Private Medical Colleges do not participate in All India Counselling and the seats are filled through State Counselling alone. And for appearing for State Counselling you need to hold the domicile of that particular State. Or else the only other option is through Management Quota. And there are 3 Categories in Private Medical Colleges. Category A is the Government Quota Seats. And only candidates of the home State are eligible to apply for these seats. B Category seats are also called Management Quota Seats and they are filled through State Counselling and the remaining seats are filled through direct Admissions by contacting the College directly provided the Candidate has registered for the respective State Counselling and has not been able to secure a seat in the Counselling. Here the fees is usually nothing less than 40 lakhs. The last Category is NRI seats Category and you cannot apply for that.
WHICH BOOK IS BEETER FOR UNDERSTAND CONCEPTS IN PHYSICAL , INORGANIC AND ORGANIC CHEMISTRY FOR NEET.I DO SELF STUDY AT MY HIME AND DO NOT ATTEND ANY COACHING CLASS.
Read more and more NCERT to clear your concepts and learn things especially for organic and inorganic chemistry. Inorganic chemistry NEET MCQs maximum will be straight forwards only NCERT based. For organic part, they will be twisted. So I will prefer you to solve the MTG NEET CHAMPION for both of these. You can further go on to for GRB for inorganic and Arihant or Pradeep book for Organic chemistry.
For physics, refer the HC VERMA, NEET MTG FINGERTIPS, MARVEL OR ERRORLESS UNIVERSAL SELF SCORER book to solve the MCQs.
