“I was an average student till Class X, but I gained confidence in the last two years that reflected in my result,” says Bhavya Sharma, who has secured the 400th rank in the National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (NEET) and emerged as the topper from Himachal.

She said strategy was important while preparing for competitive exams. She devoted six hours to studies, three hours to test and one hour to analysing her shortcomings. Taking multiple tests helped her zero in on her weak areas and work on it.

Inclined towards clinical field, Bhavya says it will be difficult to get admission to AIIMS, Delhi, with this score, but she will definitely apply to a reputed medical college in Delhi. “As my parents are doctors and working in Shimla, the IGMC will be my top priority if I decide to stay in Himachal,” she said.

Bhavya loves to collect dry leaves and make craft out of it. “Taking a break from studies to play table tennis and badminton with my younger brother acted as a stress buster for me,” said Bhavya.

In her message to other students preparing for competitive examinations, she says, “Nothing is impossible if you believe in yourself.”

Giving credit of her success to her parents and teachers, she said while her father helped her in the preparations, teachers of Aspire Academy, Shimla, motivated her even during the lockdown.

Managing Director, Aspire Academy, Yogendra Kumar Meena said, “We focused on fundamentals from the NCERT and starting the Aspire Premier League where students were divided into eight groups for competition. This helped in improving the score of students and nine of our students have scored above 600.”
