Medical Aspirant Anita who had scored 1176 in her class 12 committed suicide in her hometown at Tamilnadu last week because she could not clear NEET. Being the daughter of a daily wage labourer, she had earlier confessed that she could not comprehend NEET and also fought against it in the court. The Tamilnadu government had also driven aspirants into making them believe that NEET would be discounted for the state for medical admissions.
However, reality was far from the surface of the situation. The state government had given false hopes to hundreds of such aspirants. But on August 22, the Supreme Court ordered Tamil Nadu government to begin medical admissions based on NEET. The verdict came after the Centre refused to endorse Tamil Nadu's draft Ordinance seeking exemption from NEET for one year.
As the seat allocation began, it was clear to students that clearing NEET was restored as a mandate to secure medical college admission. Unable to take the disappointment of her dream crashing down, and not having qualified in NEET, medical aspirant Anita committed suicide.
This incident has stirred anger among both the state and country's civilians who have censured the country's messed up education system.
