Got into top govt college, but will write NEET again
After completing his Class XII board examination in Tamil medium syllabus, an 18-year-old M Suresh Kumar wasted no time in getting admitted to a coaching centre in the city in view of NEET. The problem which Suresh faced was the lack of NEET books in Tamil at his centre and this was not only with his centre but across the State. As a literal translation was done, it was not enough. Suresh had scored 1,163 out of 1,200 in Class XII exams, but the high scores were not produced in NEET. He got 127 out of 720. “Though one can appear for medical entrance five times, the examination materials unavailable for Tamil medium students made me think twice that whether I should wait or to move on,” said Suresh. With his Class XII marks, Suresh got an engineering seat in Government College of Technology (GCT) in Coimbatore. Hailing from a middle-class family, he could not stay home for one more year. Suresh has plans to appear for NEET next year, after enrolling in a coaching centre, apart from his engineering studies.
