Careers360: Tell us something about your background.

Answer: I am from Hisar, Haryana. I belong to a village named Gangwa. I belong to a lower middle class family and my family has done a lot of hard work. That motivated me in life, that I have to do something so that they do not struggle anymore. I have a younger brother and elder sister. My younger brother is pursuing BMS.

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

Answer: There is no doctor in my immediate family but in far relatives, my uncle is a doctor. He is an Orthopaedician. This inspired my family that they should also have a doctor in their family. From there that started.

Careers360: From where did you complete your MBBS?

Careers360: How did you prepare for NEET PG 2020?

Answer: It started from the very beginning of my MBBS from the day I entered my medical college. Actually I am very fond of knowing everything. I don't want my patients to suffer because of my lack of knowledge. This kept me motivated and helped me work harder and harder.

Careers360: How much time did you devote to self-study vs. coaching?

Answer: I did the entrance exam preparation more seriously in the internship period. In that year I had 10 months so I started more rigorously. I used to study 10 -12 hours, at time 13 hours a day. I took offline coaching from Jaipur DBMCI and I also joined Marrow in the late final year. Both self study and coaching are required, but self study is a must.

Careers360: Which was the most difficult section in the examination?

Answer - I can't tell you about section wise difficulty because questions come in a jumbled up manner. However, the exam was lengthy with a lot of clinically oriented questions.

Careers360: How did you tackle your weaknesses and strengths?

Answers: There were some subjects I find to be strong like Pathology and Anatomy. I took my strong subjects at the last. I rather focused on subjects like Surgery.

Answer: I like to gossip with my friend, they have lots of ups and downs, talking to them kind of recharges me.

is there any correction fee for meet 2020?

Aditya kumar Student Expert 3rd Apr, 2020
Hey there

There is no fee required for using neet correction window unless you change your category.

If you change your category using neet correction window then you have to pay fee equal to difference in the amount of fee for the two categories.

For example if you had chosen General EWS as your category but then changed to general category then you will have to pay amount of 100 while making correction . This is because application fee for general category is Rs 1500 whereas application fee for general EWS category 1400.

Yout neet correction window will be open on 1st April 2020 , while the last date to make corrections using correction window is April 14, 2020.

You will be able to use correction window by visiting the official website i.e once the correction window gets opened

What tentative AIR/score may be required in NEET PG (preferably in 2021) to get a seat in MS General Surgery in Govt Medical Colleges in Kolkata like Medical College Kolkata, R.G Kar Medical College, N.R.S Medical College, CNMC or IPGMER?

Priyaanka Sarkar Student Expert 3rd Apr, 2020

Cut offs change every year depending on various factors such as no.of Candidates appearing for the exam, no.of Candidates qualified, top NEET PG score and difficulty of the exam. We need to have an idea of 2020 NEET PG Counselling allotment results to speak about NEET PG 2021. This also vastly depends on your Category and the State that you hold the domicile of. If you hold West Bengal's domicile the rank might be much lesser than that of if you do not hold West Bengal's domicile. So it is too early to speak about NEET PG 2021.
