Gujarat Girl Cracks All Major Competitive Exams, Now Heads To MIT
As a student, we all know how important competitive exams are to get into our desirable field. However, like all days aren’t same, in the same way, all exams too aren’t same and hence we crack some while fail at some other. However, a girl from Surat in Gujarat appears to have done the impossible. Stuti Khandwala has cracked all the competitive exams from NEET to JEE (Main). If this is not enough to surprise you, she has also managed to get into the US’ Massachusetts Institute of Technology. But wait, she didn’t merely pass the exams but did so with flying colours.
This April, she passed her 12th class with 98.8 per cent and secured 685 out of 720 marks in NEET. Apart from all this, she also cracked JIPMER MBBS entrance exam.
Stuti has also managed to get a 90 per cent scholarship offer from MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology). The 18-year-old who hails from Gujarat will now be going to MIT as a research scholar in Bio Engineering.
AIIMS medical exam is something every medical aspirant dreams of cracking. But not many succeed in doing so, that’s one reason why it is considered as one of the toughest exams in the country. However, this wonder girl managed to secure AIR 10 in the AIIMS exam. Also, let’s add one more to the list. She has an AIR 71 in the NEET 2019. Undoubtedly, this is amazing. But, her spectacular journey of competitive exams doesn’t end here. She has also managed to get a 90 per cent scholarship offer from MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology). Stuti is now headed for MIT.
“I always wanted to study multiple subjects and if I study in India, I have to choose between medicine and engineering. I approached some people regarding this and mostly all of them suggested going for the MIT, where I can study both the courses. In order to take admission there, I had started preparing for Science Olympiad.” she says.
This April, she passed her 12th with 98.8 per cent and secured 685 out of 720 marks in NEET. Apart from all this, she also cracked JIPMER MBBS entrance exam.
Stuti’s father is a pathologist and her mother is a dentist. She had cleared the first step for entering MIT in May 2018 itself. However, she later decided to continue her studies and prepare for national competitive exams like JEE and NEET. Also, after finalising her aim for higher studies, she moved to Kota in Rajasthan to prepare for entrance exams. She did her class 10th in 2016 and then continued her studies along with preparing for Science Olympiad and other competitive exams. She then cleared the Scholastic Assessment Test (SAT), which is a standardised test for admission to US Colleges and Advanced Placement (AP), which is an exam for placement in US and Canadian colleges. She did this in May 2018, all in her first attempt.
“I won two International Biology Olympiads besides participating in various other competitions. This helped me in securing admission in MIT.” she said. She will join the four year undergraduate program in MIT from next year.
