Bandipora, Sep 8: The NEET 2022 qualifiers from north Kashmir's Bandipora district have a message that one should “never let the failures hold you back.” At least two students from the district who qualified the NEET in the second and fourth attempts this year have proved this.
Nadeem Fayaz (18), a resident of Onagam village in Bandipora district, who scored 617 points, has been able to qualify in the second attempt. He is feeling jubilant for the hard work he put in and the positive mindset he kept despite meeting the "unexpected" failure which was "heartbreaking". Nadeem studied in the government schools in his native village and hometown and has always been scoring well, said his sister.
"My determination and positive mindset kept me hopeful when the results were announced today. I felt the joy in my heart and reaped the benefits of the time which I invested," Nadeem said. "My family and younger siblings stood by me like a pillar and without them, it was all impossible".
"I didn't let the setback or the failures pull me down. I had set the goal that with more efforts and hard work I will qualify, “Nadeem said. Nadeem is also feeling excited as it was a "long journey" for him.
"The failure changed me as a person as I was disappointed at first, but I came back stronger than before," he said. Nadeem, who is a sports lover, said he never followed any timetable. "I had set the goal and I would analyze how much I have achieved on it."
A voracious reader as well, Nadeem who loves to spend time reading both fiction and non-fiction has a message too: "Ups and downs will be there no matter what. But, wherever you are in life and face setbacks, try to overcome it and remain honest to yourself".
Similarly, for his namesake, Nadeem Rehman from Hajin town in the district, who cracked NEET in his fourth attempt "overcoming failure is the key" to success.
Rehman, 20, has been trying his luck for four years and on Thursday he and his family became joyful after the feat. Rehman, who did his schooling from his hometown Hajin, till 12th class scored 603 points.
"The message goes out to the students facing setbacks that never give up and never stop trying. With patience and hard work you will taste success," he said.
