NEET AIR 1 Tanishka cracked JEE Main too for 'Practice', shares experience of both exams

She claims that this year’s NEET was lengthier as compared to past years’ question papers which she practiced before taking the text.

While many students find it hard to crack one national-level exam after years of practice, Haryana’s Tanishka has managed to crack both engineering and medical entrance exams in a single year. The 17-year-old has not only secured All India Rank -1 in NEET-UG 2022 with 715 marks out of 720 but also scored 99 percentile score in JEE Main.

The topper claims that she has always wanted to become a doctor and took the engineering entrance exam only for ‘practice’.

“I did not have any focused preparation for JEE Main. The physics and chemistry sections were the same as the ones I was preparing for the medical entrance so I took the JEE Main to understand my level of preparedness. I attempted the mathematics part at the end. I did not have mathematics as a subject in 11th and 12th thus I attempted the exam based on the knowledge I had till class 10," said the teenager.

NEET qualifying marks this year are lowest ever

A good score in JEE gave her the needed ‘confidence’ for her NEET exam, said Tanishka who found the medical entrance exam to be lengthier than JEE Main. In NEET, the physics section is easier as compared to JEE as the numerical is simpler, however, chemistry in mains is easier one can quickly solve the 25 questions but in NEET chemistry section is more statement-based, and tricky questions are asked to confuse students.

She claims that this year’s NEET was lengthier as compared to past years’ question papers which she practiced before taking the text. “The biology section which usually I could complete in 25-30 minutes during my practice of past year’s papers and mock tests, it took me 50 minutes to finish it. I got scared but maintained my cool. Later I found out others faced similar issues too."
