NEET 2023 Topper Parth Khandelwal Interview, AIR 10

Careers360: Congratulations on your NEET 2023 results! How are your feelings about this achievement?

Parth: Thank you so much. I feel overwhelmed with this achievement. I have achieved a significant milestone; however, the journey to crack NEET exam is long, and I have to keep up with the pace.

Careers360: Tell us something about yourself. Where did you complete your schooling, and what about your family?

Parth: I live in Jaipur, Rajasthan. My father is in the dry fruit business. I did my schooling from St. Xavier’s Senior Secondary School, Jaipur, and scored good marks in my 10th and 12th examinations.

Careers360: What motivated you to choose medicine as a career? When did you decide to become a doctor?

Parth: I decided to pursue medicine as a career when I was in 9th grade. I am also good in biology and keen to know more about the human body. Although my father is a businessman, my elder sister motivated me to become a doctor. She herself is pursuing an MBBS degree from Sawai Man Singh Medical College, Jaipur.

Careers360: Is this your first attempt? When did you start your preparations for the NEET exam?

Parth: Yes, this was my first attempt, and as I told you earlier, I started to prepare for the NEET in class 9th itself, as this is a highly competitive exam, and I aimed to crack it in my first attempt.

Careers360: How much time did you devote to self-study? What do you think is better, coaching or self-study?

Parth: Well, self-study is no doubt an important part of a student’s life, no matter what he aims to become. However, in my opinion, having the right direction is important to achieve that goal, and for that, coaching is important. I used to take classes from Allen. On average, I used to do self-study for around 6-7 hours, which increased to 12-14 hours during the last month.

Careers360: Which subject is your weakest, and which is your strongest?

Parth: My weakest subject is organic chemistry; however, biology is my strongest subject.

Careers360: How was the NEET UG preparation different from the early days to just a month before the exam?

Parth: Preparing for the NEET exam is different at different phases. Once you start, you need to spend more time on a single topic to understand it thoroughly. However, during the last month, you just need to revise without starting a new topic. Therefore, you must devote more time to revision.

Careers360: What was your exam day strategy? What was the toughest and easiest section, according to you?

Parth: As biology is my strongest subject, I started the paper with this section and completed it within a short duration, then started with physics. I attempted chemistry at last, as I was not very confident in that section.

Careers360: Which college is your dream college for studying medicine? What is your aspiration in the field of medicine, and which specialization would you be interested in?

Parth: I aim to pursue MBBS from AIIMS, New Delhi. While talking about the specialization, if I get a good rank in the postgraduate entrance exam, I will opt for neuro or cardio. Otherwise, I do have an interest in dermatology.

Careers360: To whom do you attribute your successful NEET topper journey?

Parth: I attribute my success to the unconditional support of my family, teachers who guided me well, and friends who supported me when I was at my lowest point.

Careers360: What would you suggest to future NEET aspirants in terms of preparation, attitude, etc.?

Parth: I would like to say that without effort, nothing could be achieved. NCERT is the best book to prepare for the NEET exam. Aspirants should give equal focus to Physics and Chemistry NCERT along with the Biology preparations.
