Muslim Girl Shines in Maha- rashtra Medical Entrance Exam
Solapur: Arshiya Choudhari (18) of Solapur, Maharashtra, is the second topper in the 2016 Maharashtra Common Entrance Test (MHT-CET) for admission to medical courses and can now choose a college of her choice for her MBBS.
Arshiya scored 199 marks out of 200 and was declared second topper. She also topped the HSC exams in the state this year, scoring 97.85% . The feat is very special for Arshiya because she herself prepared for the exam by dedicating 6-7 hours daily for study at home after HSC exams. “I did not join any private classes, but relied on self-study at home. I am happy that I could score this much and prove to people that private coaching is not always required if you have dedication”, Arshiya says. “I am very eager to serve people,” Arshiya says. “There are very few Muslim woman doctors and so I decided to become a doctor”.
