NEET exam: Kamal Haasan, MK Stalin slam govt, CBSE as TN students made to travel out of state to take test
Amid growing discontent among Tamil Nadu's student against CBSE for not able to allocate NEET 2018 examination centres in the state, politicians and movie stars have come forward to help students who need accommodation and route guidance to the exam centres.
In response to the public outrage, the Tamil Nadu Chief Minister's office has recently announced a toll-free helpline - 14417 - to assist students affected by this problem.
As a kind gesture, some are even offering accommodation to underprivileged students who are forced to travel to different states. About 1,20,792 candidates appeared for the test from the state in 226 centres spread across the districts of Thiruvananthapuram, Kollam, Kottayam, Alapuzha, Ernakulam, Thrissur, Palakkad, Malappuram, Kozhikode and Kannur. Since the students have been left in a fix, Twitter users chose to pool in to help underprivileged students. Standing instructions are there to handle such situations and students were given full three hours to write their examination, he said.
Other users have also offered to sponsor a student, or have offered help in the cities that the students have been allotted centres in. "Subsequently, after checking, the hall ticket was found to be fake".
Candidates have been asked not to carry stationery items like bits of paper, geometry box, pencil box, plastic pouch, pen scale, writing pad, eraser, mobile phone, blue tooth inside the examination hall. The marks are critical to secure admissions in medical courses at graduation level. As many as 24,720 aspirants had opted to take the exam in Tamil.
Chennai: Beyond the exam stress, many aspirants for NEET exams today were in for a shock when it came to enforcing the dress code. "Is that not the direct result of the incompetence of the CBSE which conducts it?" After that, counselling authorities will conduct counselling. The examination will start at 10am and end at 1pm. For more information, the candidates can easily refer to the official site, www.cbseneet.nic.in. The CBSE will provide the facility to download Admit Cards on the board's website.
