To enroll in medical courses, it is necessary to pass the ‘NEET’ exam. Free training classes are being conducted on behalf of the Department of School Education to prepare them for the NEET exam with the aim of enrolling government and government-aided school students in medical courses in that category. Last year free training classes were conducted for students through the e-box Practise.
8 thousand 132 students attended the training classes. Of these, 1,633 were said to have passed the NEET exam. Of these, more than 740 government school students alone were successful.
In this context, a bill has been approved to provide a 7.5 percent quota in medical courses to students studying in government schools and passing the NEET examination. Thus government school students are there to benefit.
The free training classes conducted on behalf of the Department of Education are very popular among the students. Accordingly, the Department of Education had already announced that students could apply to join training classes for the current year. This year the training is to be conducted by the e-box system itself.
It has been reported that more than 15,000 students studying in government and government-aided schools have so far applied to join the training classes. While it has already been announced that classes will start online from November 1 (yesterday), it is said that there is a slight delay in starting classes as more students are currently applying. It is noteworthy that this year an additional one-year student-athletes are applying for free training compared to last year.
