"It is not only fortunate but also coincidental to bag the same rank in two prestigious exams. I, however, would like to study at AIIMS," Gupta told PTI.
The 17-year-old student scored a perfect 100 per cent in the AIIMS examination and 96.5 per cent in NEET. A total of 3,64,242 students appeared for the former and 10,90,085 for the latter.
The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) today announced the results for the National Eligibility-cum- Entrance Test (NEET), in which girls outshone boys.
"I had cut myself off from social media and my favourite video games for two years to grab a seat in a medical college," said Gupta, adding that he would like to be a neurosurgeon.
Gupta's father is a businessman while his mother is a homemaker.
Punjab's Navdeep Singh bagged the top rank in NEET. A total of 6,11,539 students cleared the test which was held on May 7.
