Hyderabad: Poor girl secures MBBS seat; support pours in
Auto driver’s daughter secures 176th rank in NEET in minority quota
Chaderghat: Support is pouring in from different quarters for a 19-year old girl after she secured a medical seat. Mohammedi Begum, a student from Government City Model High School in Chaderghat, secured 2119 State rank and 176 rank in the minority quota in her very first attempt in the National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (NEET-2020).
She is a daughter of an auto driver from Old City and would be the first doctor from her family. Some politicians started sponsoring her fees.
Begum cleared NEET-2020 overcoming all the hardships. Her All India rank is 54,841. Now she will pursue her studies from Shadan Institute of Medical Sciences. Securing a MBBS seat is the dream of many, but many won't be able to get a seat in their first attempt.
"When I was a child, my mother told me that I should choose a profession that blended with my personality. And, since my childhood I wanted to become a doctor and I want to specialise in neurology. Due to financial constraints, I had to stop my studies for a year and later I took coaching and secured a good rank," she informed.
Begum is the eldest of four siblings. Her mother is an illiterate and a housewife. Both the parents wished for her to become a doctor. The girl said that she completed intermediate with 97.6 per cent from MAM government College located in Nampally "The students who have vision to do something can pursue their dreams even through government institutions," she added.
On Wednesday, Sadat Naseer and Sultan Arif Iqbal of Siddipet Foundation, MLC Farooq Hussain and Mohammed Abid of Maqdoom Brothers met the girl at her residence and handed over financial aid towards MBBS tuition fees for a year and also promised to take up the responsibility for further education. Thanking them profusely, Begum advised students not to discontinue studies even if they face financial issues.
