NEET Result 2019 Topper: Where most of the toppers of the NEET stayed away from social media to avoid “distractions” during the preparation for the exam, all India third rank holder Akshat Kaushik from Uttar Pradesh, said social media ensured that he did not break under the pressure of studies. Kaushik, who was preparing for the medical exam for last two years, has a very different approach towards presence of social media in a student's life. According to him, "Different people get distracted by different things."

"I was active on Snapchat and Instagram through this time. Different people get distracted by different things. Social media platforms ensured I did not break under the pressure of studies," Kaushik said who scored 700 out of 720 marks in NEET 2019. He aspires to become an endocrinologist.


Kaushik passed out from Delhi Public School, Varanasi, with a score of 96.4 per cent in board exams. He now wants to get into AIIMS, Delhi. However, if he doesn't make it into the premiere institute, he said he would like to study at Maulana Azad Medical College in the national capital.

Delhi's Bhavik Bansal and Akshat Kaushik secured the second and third positions respectively. Both Bansal and Kaushik scored 700 marks, but the former was ranked second for securing more marks in biology than the latter.

The results of the National Eligibility Cum Entrance Test 2019 were declared earlier on Wednesday. As many as 14,10,755 candidates had appeared for the exam, out of which 7,97,042 qualified the test. Nalin Khandelwal from Rajasthan topped the exam.

The NTA conducted the exam throughout the country on May 5 and May 20. The Medical Council of India and the Dental Council of India come under the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare.
