Dr. Joseph Johnson, who secured the second rank in NEET PG 2022, never expected to achieve the feat despite the paper being easy.
“I never imagined that I would get the second position even though the paper was easy,” said Joseph, who was sure about getting into the top 10.
“At first I couldn’t believe that I got the second rank and kept checking my roll number again until I was sure,” added Joseph who also gave INI CET and gained the 19th rank, the entrance test conducted by All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), and plans to pursue post-graduation from the institute.
Dr. Joseph, who hails from Thrissur in Kerala, didn’t face any issues while preparing for NEET-PG amid the uncertainty over the EWS quota and clash with counselling surrounding the exam but had to sacrifice his leisure activities. “I stopped going out with my friends. I am also an avid fan of films but I couldn't watch any during my preparation for NEET-PG 2022 which is why I had to resort to watching just TV series,” stated Joseph, who has a score of 699 in NEET PG 2022 and appreciated the help of his parents and friends, who he studied with for the exam.
