This year, three students in Tamil Nadu ended it their lives post seeing their NEET results. In a state which constantly restricted NEET, the increasing number of deaths in Tamil Nadu leads the state to be exempt from the examination. Defenders of NEET, nonetheless, bring up that the state has performed much better this year, with a pass rate of just about 10%.
The Quint addressed some students who appeared for NEET to know what they think - is the test by and large a positive thing for the state, or do those requiring an exception have a point?
Tamil Nadu has one of the most minimal school dropout rates. It selects 44.3% of the individuals who complete secondary school into higher education institutes get enrolled- that is the most astounding gross enrolment ratio into higher education (GER) in India.
For the most part in Tamil Nadu, most students move to state board in XI grade to get high grades in XII board tests to make the shorts. Yet, numerous students trust that the state board educational programs, but it doesn't prepare students to perform well in a test like NEET.
“The prospectus of most of the matriculation or the government situated schools are not on par to whatever the NEET is expecting. I would state the NEET is one-sided towards CBSE.”
The legislature always wanted a broad education system so that the students can enter the colleges on their school marks and not by means of independent tests. This is an endeavor to ensure all the students, from rural and urban zones, get a fair chance at higher education.
It gives a fair opportunity to each student and makes the medical course accessible to each student that originates from poverty background or a middle-class family that normally can't manage the cost of the high charges forced by the medicinal universities," said a student Muhammed Raihan.
In this way, the question arises of equality in such NEET tests. "Guardians in metropolitan urban communities like Chennai and Coimbatore send their children from Class 9 to NEET classes. Individuals in those areas can't afford to do that. They can't bear the cost of for Rs 2.5 lakh every year," said an aspirant.
They suggested that the government should incorporate NEETin syllabus of the XII class and start affordable coaching classes in the state, including rural areas too.
