"I will like to give all the credit to my mother who motivated me to aspire for being a doctor and stood by me all along," he told the agency. He was trained at the Allen Training Institute in Kota, where he moved after his Class 12 board examinations.
Akanksha Singh also scored 720 out of 720 marks, but Soyeb Aftab was declared the topper on the basis of NTA’s tie-breaking policy that considered factors like age, subject-wise marks, and the number of incorrect answers.
