This student from Bidar Institute of Medical Sciences will be awarded three gold medals and cash prize for securing the highest marks in the final year MBBS subjects.

Amulya R (in pic) obtained 1321/1750 (75.49%) marks, and has found her name in the final list of students for the award of gold medals and cash prize for the 19th annual convocation of the Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences (RGUHS) to be held in April.


Amulya is the daughter of Dr Ratikant, a pediatrician, and Dr Jayashree, a gynecologist.

Speaking to Bangalore Mirror, Amulya said she missed her distinction during her first semester by securing 73 per cent, but she managed to secure distinction for the second, third and final years.

“I believe in working hard and smart work. Whenever you sit down to study, concentration is a must. I am basically a person who studies during the day and spent time in the college library till about 10.00 pm and even during exams did not compromise on my sleep. I go to bed by 11.00 pm wake up by 7.00 am. I have received lot of support from all the professors,” she said.

Her inspiration has been her grandfather K Shantayya -- a retired director of Public Instructions, who she says was also her first teacher.

As of now, Amulya has sat for NEET, but has not yet decided on her specialisation.

“It really upsets me the way doctors are assaulted these days. Looking at these incidents, I would prefer a non-clinical subject like pathology for my post-graduation,” she said.

Amulya has been a diligent and hardworking topper throughout her academic days. She scored 87 per cent in SSLC from Gurunanak Public school in Bidar and 95 per cent in PUC (core subjects PCMB) from Expert College in Mangaluru.

She said studying in Bidar Institute of Medical Science was definitely a challenge. Her mother is a professor there.

“I felt the pressure. I had to keep up my parents’ name. My mother treated me as any normal student in the classroom and would even scold me for not knowing answers at times. I worked under my dad during my internship,” she said. Her hobbies include drawing and painting.”
