Odisha boy tops NEET with 720 out of 720 marks

Oct 17, 2020 09:31 IST

Soyeb Aftab from Odisha's Rourkela has scored a perfect 100 in NEET exam. Aftab, who along with Delhi's Akansha Singh scored 720 out of 720 marks, was ranked first and Singh second as per the National Testing Agency's tie-breaking policy, officials said. 18-yr-old Aftab who aspires to become a cardiac surgeon credited his parents for the success, saying he never expected to bag the first rank in the medical entrance exam even though he was optimistic. He had moved to coaching hub of Kota in Rajasthan to prepare for the exam and stayed there even during the lockdown with his mother.
