Bengal betters AIIMS score, powers into JIPMET top 100
After a lacklustre show over the years, Bengal got something to cheer about after the results of AIIMSMBBS were announced on Tuesday . Five students from the state have managed to bag impressive ranks this year.Three among them feature on the top 100 list of JIPMER (Jawaharlal Institute of Postgraduate Medical Education & Research) as well.
“Cracking AIIMS-MBBS and JIPMER at a go is something special. This year, the success rate has been encouraging,“ said Sunil Agarwal, centre director of Aakash Institute.
Anubhav Das of RKM Narendrapur has the best figures to show this year. He has ranked 30 in AIIMS and 50 in JIPMER. Anubhav has decided to take admission in AIIMS-Delhi. “I want to specialize in research with medical science. Research offers greater scope to go into the depths of science. I want to prevent the disease rather than curing it,“ he said.
Harry Potter lover Arijit Konar followed Anubhav, ranking 59th in AIIMS-MBBS. “If not in AIIMS-Delhi, my next choice will be AIIMS-Bhubaneshwar. It is much closer home,“ Arijit chuckled. He had not appeared in the JIPMER examination. “I was confident of cracking the test but the result is unexpected as I never hoped for such a good rank,“ he added. He scored 97.75% in ISC this year.
“I want to serve my country and stay in India. I have not thought about my specialization yet but I am considering cardio surgery ,“ said Arijit. For Dhritiman Chatterjee, who ran ked 64 in AIIMS-MBBS, the real surprise came when the JIPMER results were announced. He stood 19th. “It came as a surprise but I could have performed better,“ he beamed. The student of Calcutta Boys School added, “After MBBS, I would want to become a surgeon and later pursue higher studies abroad.“ In his recreation time, Dhritiman loves watching television and play computer games.
Soumya Jyoti Raha of Assembly of God Church School has ranked 76 in AIIMS-MBBS. His JIPMER rank is 36. “My son was always the topper in his school,“ said his mother Chitra Raha.A resident of Naktala, Soumya Jyoti solved model questions of various entrance tests “It is important to study hard. On an average, I have studied for at least 10 hours. I would now want to join AIIMS, wherever I get admission,“ Soumya Jyoti said.
“Students prefer to study in AIIMS or JIPMER more than in any medical college of Bengal because the infrastructure is much better. Moreover, the students get better practical experience,“ added Sunil Agarwal.
