NEET UG 2023 Topper: AIR 1 Prabhanjan J attributes success to rigorous practice with NEET-pattern questions
The NEET-UG 2023 results have been announced by the National Testing Agency. This year, two students, Prabhanjan J from Tamil Nadu and Bora Varun Chakravarthi from Andhra Pradesh, have achieved a perfect score and are sharing the top position. Students who appeared for the examination can access their results on the official websites, neet.nta.nic.in or ntaresults.nic.in.
Following the release of the results, NEET UG started trending on Twitter. However, some users are highlighting a different perspective on the NEET-UG Results 2023. Sumanth Raman, claiming to be a television news anchor and political analyst, initiated a debate on the microblogging site. In his tweet, he mentioned that the NEET topper, Prabhanjan J, hails from Gingee and his parents are government school teachers, which challenges the notion of a privileged background that some were expecting for the top spot in NEET UG 2023. Sumanth Raman also shared an interview of Prabhanjan J from a national daily.
Sumanth Raman's tweet has sparked a debate, with users expressing their opinions on whether students from privileged backgrounds have the resources and potential to secure top positions in the NEET-UG entrance examination. Joining the discussion, Jay Prakash Gandhi, a career consultant and analyst, shared his opinion on the family background of the topper, Prabhanjan J. He claimed that only students from affluent families can achieve high scores in NEET by studying in expensive top schools. Gandhi also urged others to take note of the significant advertising expenses incurred by NEET coaching centers and schools.
Numerous individuals are now voicing their concerns and opinions on this matter. Meanwhile, the counseling process for selected candidates will be managed by the Ministry of Health. This year, over 20 lakh candidates took the NEET UG exam, which was conducted on May 7, 2023, at various exam centers nationwide. The provisional answer key was released on June 4, and candidates had until June 6, 2023, to raise objections against it.
