GORAKHPUR: Kushinagar’s Akansha Singh bagged the perfect 720/ 720 score in the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) 2020. However, owing to NEET’s tie-breaking policy, the 17-year-old missed the top rank in the country as topper Soyeb Aftab is a year older to her. Akansha, who made her home state proud, attributed her success to her family’s rocklike support and motivation by teachers.
Her father Rajendra Pratap Rao took voluntary retirement from Indian Air Force to stay with her in Delhi for two years.
Singh says no social media a/c helped her focus in studies
Speaking to TOI over phone, Akansha said, “I never made a time table and studied one topic a day. My parents stood by me throughout this gruelling journey and boosted my morale,” she shared. She doesn’t have any social media account and said it helped her to focus.
Akansha, who wants to be a neurosurgeon and make healthcare affordable, would commute 70km daily to Gorakhpur for coaching classes before going to Delhi. Inspired by PM Narendra Modi, she wishes to serve the people of her village. A resident of Abhnayakpur village of Kasya block, she now wants to meet CM Yogi Adityanath.
“I am inspired by PM Modi as he also belongs to a small town and has achieved great success in life. I also look up to CM Yogi, and if given a chance, I would like to meet him someday,” she said.
Akansha did her high school from Kushinagar and joined a coaching in Gorakhpur for NEET preparation. Akansha’s mother Ruchi Singh, a government school teacher, said, “We saw the result around 8pm on Friday. Although I was sure that she would be a position holder, I had no idea she would score full marks. My happiness knew no bounds when I saw that she scored 720 out of 720 marks. Due to NEET’s tie-breaking policy, she stood second, as the boy who scored the same marks is older to her.”
