THE National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) 2021 for admission in undergraduate medical courses was held across the country following COVID-19 protocols on Sunday. Ashutosh Kumar, a student while speaking to ANI, said, “The exam was getting postponed due to COVID-19 several times and we got lots of time for the preparation. I am all prepared for this exam.” The strict adherence to COVID-19 measures was taken by the students and the school authorities. “I am 100 per cent prepared for the NEET examination. It’s good for the students preparing for NEET. Finally, we can appear for this exam,” said another student.
The NEET 2021 examination was delayed due to the second wave of the COVID-19 outbreak. Tamil Nadu Government will bring a bill in the Legislative Assembly seeking a permanent exemption to the State from NEET on Monday. Meanwhile, hours before he was to appear for the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test for a third time, a 19-year old youth from Tamil Nadu, died of suicide on Sunday. “The boy was found hanging in his house by her mother at about 3.45 AM and the family informed us,” a Mettur range police officer said.
