Patiala, October 16

Ishita Garg, 18, secured an All-India Rank (AIR) 24 in the National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (NEET) and topped the state. She got 706 marks out of 720 in the medical examination, the results of which were declared by the National Testing Agency (NTA) late Friday evening.

Ishita, who had secured 97.2 per cent marks in the Class XII board examination, said the Covid-induced lockdown helped her a lot in her preparation for NEET. She said, “The lockdown made the difference for me. I did self-study for 8-10 hours during the lockdown.”

Giving credit to her parents, who are doctors in Nabha, Ishita said her mother was the “guiding angel” in her journey.
