Every year – at this time of the year – lakhs of Class 12 Medical students go through a baptism by fire – that of appearing for the NEET entrance exams for admissions to the MBBS. Eventually, just 2% of candidates attempting these make it into the MBBS college while nearly 98% of candidates are left disappointed.
Some who don’t make it accept this reality and move on to seek admissions into private colleges. Others consciously decide to ‘drop’ a year to appear for the NEET the following year.
