NEET coaching to resume by mid-June says Tamil Nadu minister: reports
NEW DELHI: The School Education Minister of the Government of Tamil Nadu, KA Sengottaiyan on May 24, 2020, has announced that the state government’s residential training programme to prepare government school aspirants for National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (NEET) will commence from mid-June.
As per the reports, KA Sengottaiyan said, "Around 7,300 students will be given intense residential training for 35 days in nine colleges across the State."
Interruption in the training programmes
NEET 2020 weekly training was interrupted by the local body elections last December and has not been conducted again in the majority of the states. Few government schools resumed coaching at the end of February, however, it was again stopped due to the COVID-19 lockdown across the nation.
Aspirants who can afford private coaching are taking online coaching, while those who are studying in government schools cannot afford it. Thus, residential training is hope for them.
The NEET entrance exam is conducted for admission to 82,926 MBBS, 26,949 BDS, 52,720 AYUSH and 525 BVSc & AH offered in colleges of India. This year, NEET is scheduled to be conducted on July 26, 2020.
