Upon being asked about her thoughts on securing the top rank, “I was not sure about the topper’s rank in AIIMS but was certain about being selected for AIIMS”, Nishita told HT.

Part of the Kota-based Allen Career Institute where she underwent coaching for the medical exams, Nishita has her eyes set on studying cardiology or radiology at AIIMS. She had also performed well in her Class 12 boards with a brilliant score of 91.4 per cent and is also a national level basketball player.

Owing her success to her family members and coaching institute, “While my coaching institute guided me to success, my mother regularly visited me during my stay in Kota and both she and my brother, Anshul, motivated me to do my best,” she said.
