Stuti Shital Khandwala, a name that is now a well-known name because she cracked NEET, JIPMER, AIIMS, and JEE in the same year.
Here is a piece of advice from the star.

Once I and one of my childhood school friend debated on ‘Hard work vs Genious’ when we were students, staying in Noida. His brother had cracked BITS-Pilani entrance and was pursuing engineering there. He argued that geniuses are born with special grace and only selected few can crack such prestigious exams while I differed.
During our argument, I think it was unofficially clear that we were not genius and there was no debate on that. Now he works on a very good profile in Gurugram in headquarters of one of the top retail companies while I went on to crack an all India level competitive exam.
Stuti Shital Khandwala
Let’s keep this argument on a side and discuss the star of the hour.
Stuti Khandwala has been offered 90% scholarship in renowned MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) which is arguably the best University of the world. She would not do medical or engineering but would research on Bio-Engineering.
She had scored 98.8% in Class 12 CBSE Board Exams and went on to clear NEET (National Eligibility cum Entrance Test, formerly the All India Pre-Medical Test (AIPMT). This exam is conducted for admission into medical colleges), JEE (Joint Entrance Examination. This exam is conducted for admission into engineering colleges), JIPMER (Jawaharlal Institute of Postgraduate Medical Education & Research, one of the three medical exams), AIIMS (All India Institutes of Medical Sciences).
All exams require preparations on an individual basis however there are many students who take both Science and Maths as their subjects in Intermediate which enable them to appear in both engineering and medical exams. Stuti Khandwala is also one of them. She is from Surat and was preparing for competitive exams in Kota.
If you don’t know about Kota we recommend watching this web series of TVF.
Hard Work VS Genius
Coming back to the discussion about people working hard (smart work) versus born genius people qualifying entrance exams, I believe that genius is someone who has worked extremely hard and in the process has always improved and learnt from his/her mistakes as well as success.
Are there born geniuses?
Of course, there are born geniuses who have better IQs than the general public. It is like an exception and exceptions are always there but what if, if you are not one of them? Don’t worry you can still become a genius like Thomas Elva Edison. Do you know that he was America’s greatest inventor? He had hearing problems at an early age and was thrown out of school. “Your son is addled (mentally ill). We will not allow him to attend our institution any longer” His mother Nancy Edison never let her son see this letter and homeschooled him. He went to become a genius and invented the practical electric light bulb, phonograph, the motion camera etc.
For us, Shruti is no less than a genius who studies for 13 hours a day to achieve her dream, lived a strict and disciplined life and worked very hard to achieve success.
We wish Stuti Khandwala all the very best for her future and request her to bring peace and prosperity to India and World.
