Sate-wise NEET Topper List 2020

What Does NEET 2021 Topper Have To Say?

This is what Mrinal Kutteri has to say:

“So, I went for a free-form and flexible pattern. I set a goal for each day and how I achieved it was up to me. There were many days when I couldn’t achieve the goal, but it was not about getting demotivated or discouraged. Being okay with this free form is what I think really helped me,”.
NEET topper 2021 Mrinal Kutteri

When asked about his daily study plan, he remarked he studied for 4 hours on an average every day, and sometimes for 5 hours, apart from his college timings. Nothing more than that.

This is what Tanmay Gupta has to say:

“I started preparing in standard 11 and studied 4 to 5 hours a day. I continued my hobbies with my studies. If you continue your hobbies, you will have more interest in studies.”
NEET topper 2021 Tanmay Gupta

According to NEET Topper 2021, Tanmay Gupta, hobbies help focus on studies better. He has represented Jammu and Kashmir in swimming at the national level. He believes the smart study is very important.

This is what Karthika G. Nair had to say :

 “It is true, that lockdown left us with a lot of problems, but we could tackle them all because of my teachers.”
