Tanishka, NEET UG all india topper, is the daughter of government teachers and this is her gift to her parents on teacher’s day.
Rajasthan’s Tanishka has been declared the all India topper of the National Eligibility Entrance Test (NEET-UG) 2022. The NEET UG results 2022 were declared by the National Testing Agency (NTA) on Wednesday. The All India Rank (AIR) 1 holder chose to enter the medical field as she believes this is a profession in which “you can establish yourself by helping others”, she said.
Tanishka cleared her class 12 exams this year after securing 98.6 per cent marks. She had scored 96.4 per cent marks in class 10.

Topper Tanishka from Rajasthan had decided to pursue medicine as her career choice even before she wrote the National Eligibility Entrance Test (NEET). She was motivated to help others and establish herself in a field where she could make a difference. Her efforts bore fruit when she was declared the all India topper of NEET-UG 2022 with a percentile of 99.99983.
Tanishka’s parents are both teachers at a government school, and she couldn’t think of a better gift to give them on Teacher’s Day. Tanishka explains that her parents have always been supportive, and were always in her corner even when she didn’t do as well as she wanted to on tests. They never pressured me, and would always motivate me, she said.
Tanishka is grateful to her parents for their support, and knows that they are the reason she has been able to succeed in spite of her challenges.
Tanishka, a strong believer in never giving up, used to study by herself for six to seven hours a day. The topper believes every NEET aspirant should prepare for the target from the very first day, and not at the last minute. “As the course progresses in the classroom, you will have to revise the previous studies again and again. You can make small notes topic-wise,” she said.
This year, four candidates were tied at the top spot with an exact percentile score of 99.9997733. However, unlike last year, the NTA did not jointly award them the first rank. This year, the NTA used its new tie-breaker policy to award the first rank to Tanishka. Vatsa Ashish Batra from Delhi was ranked second, Hrishikesh Nagbhushan Gangule third, and Rucha Pawashe from Karnataka fourth.
