Studying together helped them in time management and problem solving. And it was evident in their All India Pre-Medical Test (AIPMT) results announced on Monday.
Twins of a doctor couple of Indore, Ayushman Bindal (18) and Abhigyan Bindal (18), have secured all India rank (AIR) 14 and 26 respectively in the AIPMT retest held on July 25 last.
The elated twins said the rankings will help them fulfil their parents’ dream to become doctors. “We worked hard for the AIPMT together and now the top rankings will help us to get admission in medical colleges of our choice,” said Ayushman, accompanied by Abhigyan.
The Bindal brothers, who got second and fifth rank respectively in Madhya Pradesh, credited their success to parents Dr Manish Bindal and Dr Monica Bindal.
“Being children of doctors, gives us some edge, but without a doubt, it is a big achievement for us, particularly after the recent controversy that hit AIPMT,” Ayushman said.
The students of Daisy Dale School said that studying together helped them in time management as well as problem solving.
“It is a fact that you are always in a win-win situation if someone from your family is preparing for competitive exam along with you. In our case, both of us were preparing for one exam and our goal was same. So, we used to distribute subjects among us. When I worked on some subject, Abhigyan prepared some other subject and whenever we sat together, we would discuss topics that helped us for concept building and solving problems,” Ayushman said.
On the re-test, Bindals said initially it was tough for both of them to re-group and re-work on course. “But it was a blessing in disguise for us as today we displayed the fruits of hard work we had done, along with our parents and teachers,” he added.
Ayushman, who wishes to join the Maulana Azad Medical College in New Delhi, said his rank will help him to get what he wants.
His sibling Abhigyan, who too wants to join his brother in the same college, said as his ranking is a bit low compared to his brother, so he is looking forward to a top medical college in the country.
