Amritsar, October 17

It was a day of contentment and excitement for the successful candidates of the NEET-2020 as they celebrated with their families after results were declared here on Friday.

Satyam Wahi secured first rank in the district, while Nipun Aggarwal became the first candidate from Batala to score maximum marks ever in NEET. Nipun scored 670 out of 720 and his AIR stands at 130. He is third in Amritsar district.

His father owns a rice sheller and his elder sister, who is studying BDS from Manipal University, is his inspiration. “I want to pursue cardiology as I have always been curious about it. I think that my result was quite satisfactory as the lockdown and uncertainty over competitive exams this year was quite taxing for students,” Nipun said.

A student of Sidana International School, Amritsar, he attributes his success to his family. “They sacrificed a lot to ensure that I got enough study time and my focus never shifted because of any other distractions. I had stayed away from social media completely and my parents limited their social interactions as well as they provided me with all resources to pursue my goals,” he said.

His father Rohit Aggarwal was evidently proud of his son’s academic success. “I am happy that both my kids will become doctors and pursue noble profession. This pandemic has made us all realise the importance of doctors and healthcare professionals. It’s a proud moment for me as a father,” he said.

Hardik Vyas, who scored 665 marks out of 720 and stood fourth in the district, said: “I dedicated the lockdown completely to my studies.”
