Goa-based student Shivam Goel has been able to bag an all India rank of 205 for admissions to AIIMS in 2013, a first for the state.

AIIMS 2013 was answered by over two lakh students with 2,400 qualifying in one of the most prestigious tests.

The question paper was of 200 questions with one mark per question and with negative marking as well. The paper is different from other competitive examinations since it requires extensive understanding and application of concepts since no syllabus is prescribed. It is only roughly based on the 10+2 portion.

There are approximately 320 seats to vie for at AIIMS and its allied institutions for general category.

“I obtained AIR 205. I would like to thank my teachers at Aryaan Mushtifund higher secondary school, Panaji, especially Vyankatesh Prabhudesai for guiding me and teaching me the necessary concepts to crack the exam. I would also thank my parents and my sister for encouraging me and my biology teacher for clearing my doubts,” Shivam said.

Goel was an outstanding student. He has secured the 493rd rank in general category at NEET all-India exam and 5{+t}{+h} rank in general category in Jipmer all-India entrance exam.

Both of Shivam’s parents are doctors.
