The results of the 2016 All-India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) entrance examination were declared on Tuesday. Chandigarh’s Arushi (rank 10), Palampur’s Amol (rank 13) and Patiala boy Gurasees Singh Boparai at 28th spot were top candidates in the north region.
They are followed by Chandigarh’s Japnoor Kaur (32), Rajpura’s Shivam Singla (37), and Chandigarh’s Tanish Modi (68) and Mukand Garg (69). Elated over his performance, Gurasees said that it had been his dream to join India’s finest medical institute. “I focused well on studies and managed to perform up to my expectations. Family motivation brought me into the medical profession,” says the boy who has his heart in cardiology.
Rajpura boy Shivam Singla, ranked 37, wants to do research in neurology. Asked how he had prepared for the challenge: he said: “I couldn’t sleep for four days before the examination, and now I don’t think I’ll be able to sleep even tonight.” Both his parents are doctors.
The official website on which the results were posted remained down for most of the time, forcing candidates to get the details from some of the coaching centre that had their own information sources in Delhi.
