Hudhud times: Chennai | A 17-year-old girl in Tamil Nadu allegedly died by suicide today in the third death linked to the medical entrance exam NEET in four days.
The teen, a daily wager’s daughter, had taken NEET 2021 or the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test exam for admission to undergraduate medical courses and was worried she would not clear it. She had scored 84.9 per cent in Class 12.
Just yesterday, another 17-year-old student had died by suicide after taking NEET on Monday. This, a day after the state government passed a bill exempting the state from NEET and allowing admission to medical colleges in Tamil Nadu based on Class 12 marks. https://www.hudhudtimes.com/
