Careers360: Tell us about yourself and your family. How did they support you during the preparation days?

Krishna Agrawal: I belong to Nanded, Maharashtra and I have studied from Maharashtra state board. My father is a Paediatrician and my mother is a Dentist. My parents have always supported me and because they are doctors it was their guidance in every step that has helped me to secure AIR 7. There were times when I was unable to perform well in exams but they never let me think that I cannot do this. All through my journey, I believe they never allowed me to doubt myself. They have helped me especially with Biology and if you want to clear NEET then Biology is the most important section.

 

Careers360: What motivated you to pursue medicine as a career?

Krishna Agrawal: Since both of my parents are doctors so they were my biggest motivating factor.  I kept engineering as an option but in Class 11 I decided that medicine is that career option for me where I can see myself 10 years down the line. The faculty in Nanded is really amazing and they helped me a lot in clearing my doubts regarding medicine as a career option.

 

Careers360: What is your overall and subject-wise score in NEET 2018? Which according to you was the toughest and easiest section?

Krishna Agrawal: My overall NEET score was 685. I have scored 170 in Physics section, 165 in Chemistry and 350 in Biology. Mechanics under Physics section was the toughest topic for me and Biology section was the easiest. Inorganic in Chemistry section requires a lot of learning so I focused a lot more on that part.

 

Careers360: Which other medical entrances have you appeared for? What are your expectations in these medical entrances?

Krishna Agrawal: I appeared for AIIMS and JIPMER. I am hoping to secure a good rank in AIIMS as the exam went well. For me, JIPMER was slightly difficult as the language medium is only English. My target college is AIIMS, New Delhi, if not then Maulana Azad Medical College, New Delhi since both of them are the most sought after institutions of the country.

 

Careers360: How did you prepare for NEET 2018 and balanced the studies for board exams and other medical entrances with NEET?

Krishna Agrawal: Physics was a little tricky for me so I tried to pay more attention to this section. I had a prepared schedule for each section and I tried to closely follow till the last days. I studied for 6-7 hours each day and believed in my teachers whatever knowledge they imparted me I followed it. Although, I had to halt the NEET preparation while taking the board exams for a month. After March, I studied for NEET with more vigour and hard work.

 

Careers360: Did you take any coaching or help? How beneficial did it prove?

Krishna Agrawal: I took coaching from Ideal Institute of Biology for Biology section and for Physics and Chemistry section I preferred Creative Coaching Classes. They provided me practice papers and corrected my mistakes and it proved to be a lot beneficial for me especially while taking the NEET exam.

 

Careers360: What are your hobbies? Did you engage in them during the preparations?

Krishna Agrawal: I am a state level player in badminton and cricket. However, while preparing for NEET I didn’t play but now I am doing that.

 

Careers360: Any message or advice for future medical aspirants?

Krishna Agrawal: Try to study at least 6-7 hours a day, prepare a schedule and stick to it. Believe in yourself, your teachers and in your hard work. You don’t require any outside material if you believe in the guidance of your teachers and success will follow.

Ashish pal Student Expert 21st Nov, 2019

Hello dear aspirant

As you are interested in IMS BHU let me tell you that it is one of the best medical College of India. In order to get admission in it being a general category candidate you have to study hard and score above 650. In 2018 cutoff marks are around 600 but increased to 650 in 2019.

To achieve this score you have to study hard solve previous year question papers and join some test serieses.

Hope you get it.

Good luck.
