Speculations were on a high for the last couple of days among the medical aspirants, when they came to know about the possible capping of NEET (National Entrance cum Eligibility Test) to three attempts. Although, there is no official confirmation related to the information, it seems the cap in the number of attempts will eventually set in.
PaGaLGuY observed what the Twitterati had to say about such a step at the very last moment before the application procedure starts for the academic year.
A NEET repeater from Lucknow, Akanchha Verma, tweeted @narendramodi, asking why the central government likes to mess things up just before the exam?
Akanchha was not alone in tagging the Prime Minister seeking answers. Another Twitter user Satya Biswal requested the Health Minister J P Nadda and PM Modi to not set an upper age limit.
Saurabh Singh, went a step further and dare the Health Minister and Prime Minister through his tweet to apply such rules only when they increase the number of medical seats in the country.
Taking a dig on the administration and their liking of sudden implementation of rules, Tanay Kumar, a NEET repeater from Jharkhand, bashed the possibility on twitter.
Another user Shruti labeled the officials responsible for conducting NEET ‘lazy’ in her tweet. She mentioned that on the other hand where JIPMER and AIIMS have already mentioned their counselling dates, NEET is still stuck with capping attempts.
Dr. Amit Gupta, an RTI activist from Rajasthan, advised his followers to stay calm and do not jump their guns as yet.
We at PaGaLGuY are keeping a track of all the updates related to the capping of NEET attempts. We wish there are changes made that can benefit all sections of medical aspirants.
