New Delhi, November 2— A number of students from poor and lower middle-class families have qualified India’s toughest medical entrance test NEET-2020, thanks to their hard work and full focus on their goal.
Vaijinath Patil from Karnataka secured an MBBS seat in his second attempt. He comes from a rural background. He is son of a farmer.
Arbaaz Ahmed, also from Karnataka, has secured 700 marks and 85th All India Rank (AIR). He is son of a lorry driver who had lost his limbs in a mishap.
The best performer from Karnataka is Karthik Reddy who has got 710 out of 720 marks and 9th All India Rank in the toughest medical college entrance examination. He has got first rank in Karnataka. He is son of a professor.
Mohammad Anas from Muzaffarnagar, Uttar Pradesh has got 663 marks and AIR 1876. He has got this high rank in his sixth attempt.
All four are among hundreds of students of Shaheen Group of Institutions who cleared NEET-2020 with high ranks and are almost set to get free government medical seats.
Here is the inspiring story of Mohammed Anas who has cleared NEET-2020 with good marks and high ranks in sixth attempt this year. His message to aspirants: “Never give up. Always focus on your goal. You will succeed one day.”
“I passed 12th Class Exam in 2014 and got admission in B.Sc. In first year, I appeared in NEET. In first attempt I got just 190 marks, in second attempt, I got 209 marks and in third I got less marks when I cleared B.Sc. final year. This lowered my confidence level. I was unable to figure out what to do. I had no proper guidance,” says Anas.
“In 2017, I got to know about Shaheen Group of Institutions. After joining it, I appeared in NEET in 2018, that was my 4th attempt. I got 333 marks and All India Rank 1.50 lakh. In 2019, I got 531 marks and AIR 32,000. I was near the cut-off mark but was not getting any college. I decided to attempt once more and for the last time. I started preparation. I always wanted to be doctor. This has been my childhood dream. In 2020, I have got 663 marks and AIR 1876,” says Anas in the video.
Anas has a message for NEET aspirants. “Those who get less marks in first, second or third attempt, I want to tell them to focus on their goal, one day you will achieve your target. Never give up, be focussed on your goal, sooner or later you will get your goal.”
Last week, Shaheen Group’s chairman Dr Abdul Qadeer was in Delhi along with some of his NEET qualifiers. He held a press conference where he announced to give Rs 5 crore scholarships to NEET repeaters from poor families.
Dr Qadeer also met Minority Affairs Minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi. The minister felicitated NEET qualifiers Arbaaz Ahmed and Mohammed Anas at his residence.
“An inspiring story of Mohammed Anas who secured MBBS seat in his 6th attempt. His dream of getting a seat at Medical College has fulfilled and he is set to get a seat at a prestigious MBBS College in North India,” said Shaheen Group in a Facebook post.
