NEET results out, B'luru students manage good scores

Many students from Bengaluru have got good ranks in the National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (NEET), the results of which were announced on Tuesday.

Incidentally, most of the NEET toppers have already joined MBBS at Bangalore Medical College and Research Institute (BMCRI) on the basis of their CET ranks.

Suraj M has bagged an all India rank of 78. Suraj said that he had joined BASE and it was the syllabus followed there that helped him prepare better for the NEET.

“When we entered the exam hall to write CET, we were told that it would not be considered for medical and dental seat allotment. We thought what is the point in writing it then? We had to also focus on NEET and it was tough amid all this confusion,” Suraj who had got 11th rank in CET said about the challenges that the batch faced due to confusion that prevailed in the last minute. Suraj studied till class 10 at National Public School and later joined VVS Sardar Patel.

Sanjay M Goudar has excelled again with an all India rank of 122. Ranked second in the CET (medical), Goudar had cross-checked the answer key released after NEET-1 and was satisfied with his performance. He did not write it a second time. “The syllabus for CET and NEET is the same. So you just need to be thorough with the NCERT books and solve a lot of multiple choice questions,” he said.

He started his preparations in his first year at Seshadripuram PU College and used to attend coaching class.  “I think I will specialise in neurology later because I find it interesting.” he added.

Mahin Mundra, who studied class 12 at NPS Koramangala has got 223rd rank. She had joined the Akash Institute for coaching. “I worked hard for two years. In class 11, I was preparing for engineering. However, in class 12, I changed my mind and shifted to medical. I am interested in neuro-surgery,” she added. Her medical rank in CET was 18. Mundra is also a Khatak dancer. She attempted NEET-2 as she was not happy with her performance in NEET-1.

Vivek Bhat secured an all India rank of 281. Like the other toppers he too has joined BMCRI on the basis of his CET rank of 93.  After writing NEET-1, he did not want to attempt the exam for the second time as he wanted a break after studying for months. “If they had a system in which they would choose the better score of NEET-1 and NEET-2 then I would have written the second one,” Bhat said.

A student of Miranda Composite PU college, he had scored 95.3% in the second year PU examination. Bhat has been preparing for the entrance exams since September last year and was coached at Deeksha Network. He played basketball everyday as a stress buster.

Students who already availed themselves of a MBBS seat under the CET would get refund of fee if they bag a seat through the all India quota. However, those admitted to MBBS under Comed-K are not eligible to attend counseling.
