“He set his goal in class 10. He would solve questions with his elder sister Naraiyani who also cracked NEET earlier and is presently a second year MBBS student,” said Eeshaan's father Dr Piyush Agrawal who is a senior faculty at SRMS Medical College in Bareilly over the telephone.

“I want to be a cardiologist,” said Eeshaan who is aiming to get a seat at AIIMS, New Delhi. As NEET UG 2022 results were declared late on Wednesday night, Eeshaan, a topper in Bareilly division with 99.2% marks in class 12 exam, got calls from friends and relatives and this kept him and his phone busy and awake till 3 in the morning.

Eeshaan did not attend any coaching classes physically but obtained course material from distant learning programme. He attended all his school classes both online and offline regularly and never missed a lecture. His love for games too was his daily routine. He got a total 705 marks.

“Even three days before his NEET exam, my son played cricket. He says games keep him energised,” said Dr Agrawal.
