Haryana's Vipul Garg has topped the All India Pre-Medical Test entrance examination 2015, the results of which were declared on Monday.

Seventeen-year-old Garg, who has been undergoing treatment for a problem in his sinuses, said his medication made him drowsy while he was preparing for the entrance examination, but that did not deter him from studying hard.

"I used to get severe headaches during my preparation days and managed to study for a maximum of four to five hours at a stretch. But, I believe that if we study with a lot of concentration and focus even for such a short time period regularly, we can surely score well," said Garg.

"It was the dream of my parents that I become a doctor and I followed their dream. I want to become a cardiologist or neurologist going ahead," he said.

The son of a bag seller in Jind, Garg is a student of New Holy Public School in New Delhi's Uttam Nagar East and has always done well.

"I had obtained a 10 CGPA in Class 10. My merit helped me do my schooling by paying a considerably low tuition fee. I was also offered a scholarship for my medical coaching by a private coaching institute," said Garg.

"My parents braved a lot of hardship to educate me due to financial trouble, but they never made me feel the heat. I have been a pampered child. My parents have never denied me of anything I had asked for, even if there was a challenge of money."

Commenting on the Supreme Court's decision to scrap the May 3 AIPMT examination after a question paper was leaked and the answer sheet was circulated with the help of electronic devices, Garg said he got a little nervous when he heard about the retest which was held on July 25.

"The retest was not a solution. My confidence level went low when I came to know that I need to write a re-test. I was confident about my performance in the initial exam and was expecting to score well. My parents and teachers boosted my motivation to a large extent."

Garg wishes to join the Maulana Azad Medical College in New Delhi and go back to Jind and practice there. "I want to help the people of my area by providing them with low-cost medical treatment," he said.
