This is the second consecutive year that a female candidate has topped the PG medical entrance examination, with Dr. Shagun Batra holding the top position last year by scoring 705 out of 800 marks.
Dr. Arushi, who shared her preparation tips on a YouTube channel soon after the results were announced, stated that her key strategy for studying was to stick to a single source. India.com reported that Dr. Arushi also mentioned how she initially studied online during the COVID-19 pandemic but later transitioned to in-person classes. Additionally, she revealed that while preparing for the exam, she would take one day off every week to relax and hang out with her friends.
According to Hindustan Times, Dr. Arushi comes from a family of medical professionals. Her mother, Dr. Riya Narwani, is a professor of anatomy at Jaipur’s Sawai Man Singh Medical College, while her father, Dr. Sanjay Narwani, is an ear, nose, and throat surgeon. Although she did not consider a career in medicine as a child, Dr. Arushi ultimately chose to pursue it after falling in love with biology in the 12th grade.
Dr. Arushi discussed her NEET-PG 2023 preparation, stating that she began studying in 2020 during the COVID-19 lockdown and primarily studied at home. She noted that her preparations became more intense once she started her internship at Safdarjung, where she had to work 12-24 hour shifts. As for her future plans, Dr. Narwani is considering pursuing a Doctor of Medicine (MD) degree, potentially in radiology, although she has not made a final decision yet. “I have yet to make that decision,” she said.
