Navdeep’s Words

“I was expecting a good rank in the NEET, but never thought I would top the entrance exam,” said Navdeep Singh, who also aims to study at the Maulana Azad Medical College (MAMC) in Delhi.

With a percentile of 99.99, the Punjabi is followed by Madhya Pradesh’s Archit Gupta and Manish Mulchandani at second and third rank respectively.


The hobby of Navdeep Singh includes playing Cricket. His interests lie in two things. The 18-year-old boy said, “I have just two passions, studies, and cricket.”

Navdeep took coaching for NEET Examination. He received coaching from Helix Institute, Chandigarh. Mr. Singh said, “I was sure of clearing the exam but never expected to become All India topper.”

The topper boy decided to secure admission in Maulana Azad Medical College, New Delhi for MBBS course.

Navdeep Singh was on cloud nine when he saw his name right on top of the National Entrance-cum-Eligibility Test (NEET).

NEET is conducted for admission to MBBS and BDS courses in medical colleges. Bathinda girl Nikita Goyal came in 8th position.

She became the topper among girls. While Navdeep got 697 out of 720 marks,

Both want admission at Maulana Azad Medical College, New Delhi, because of its economic fee structure and high academic standard, they said.

Shy by nature, Navdeep has been regular in his studies. He shared how overwhelmed he is after securing an AIR 1, “I was expecting good marks, but the result is overwhelming. I am glad that I could make my state and especially my city proud by bringing it on the front of our Nation, as it is a very small and not much-known place.”

Navdeep Singh completed his class XII from Shivalik Public Senior Secondary School in Muktsar District with 88 percent marks.

He also took coaching for the NEET at a private institute here.

Word’s of Mr. Gopal Singh

Describing his son as hardworking, Gopal Singh said, “He slogged hard as his focus was to be among the top 10 in the NEET. Right from his childhood, my son did only two things, study and sleep. He slept for just six hours after passing his tenth to be among the toppers.”

“Since I am a teacher of Physics, my son too developed an interest in the subject. It’s the hard work you put that matters and not the place from where you do your Class XII,” Gopal said.

Mr. Singh said, “I was sure of clearing the exam but never expected to become All India topper.”

Mr. Gopal Singh said that his son secured 202 ranks in the AIIMS as his general knowledge was not good, but that did not matter in the NEET.

Navdeep also has a younger brother who is studying in class XI, and his mother is also an employee of LIC.

In Punjab and Haryana, five students have bagged spots among the top 25.

Sharing his views about the impact of social media, Navdeep said, “I did not use Facebook or WhatsApp for two years. My mother sacrificed more than me. She never attended any parties or functions and accompanied me all the time. This score was just because of my parents and teachers.”

Other Toppers

Apart from Navdeep, Nikita Goyal and Tanisha Bansal from Punjab secured the Eight and Tenth ranks respectively in the test conducted for admission to MBBS and BDS courses.

From Haryana, Kanish Tayal was 7th while Aditi Goyal secured rank 22.

Meanwhile, Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh also congratulated Navdeep for this achievement.

“Congratulations Navdeep Singh for topping this year’s NEET. You have indeed done Punjab proud. Best wishes,” he tweeted.

A total of 11,38,890 students had appeared for the NEET, out of which 6,11,539 have passed the medical entrance examination which was held on May 7.

Out of these, 2,66,221 were male aspirants while 3,45,313 were females. Eight transgenders also appeared for the test, out of which five have qualified.

“I am a topper among girls as boys have bagged the first seven positions,” said Nikita Goyal of Silver Oak Colony, Bathinda, who used to study for six hours every day. Her father Suresh Kumar Goyal, an agriculture development officer, is posted in Bathinda. “We hail from a small town, Rampura Phull, of Bathinda. But, we settled in Bathinda for the sake of better education for my kids. We are proud of her,” he gushed.

At last, Navdeep Singh says that aspirants must have faith in them. They should believe in them. They should not think about the result and must appear for the examination with full confidence. According to Singh, candidates must choose their career with no peer pressure and must discuss their ideas with their parents.
