Health Minister M Subramanian said that the medical aspirants should continue to prepare for NEET this year, while the state government is pushing for exemption from the examination in Tamilnadu.
“Chief Minister MK Stalin has recently met Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the NEET exemption issue and we are trying to get it done before this year’s examination which is scheduled in August. However, the students should continue to prepare as the examination exemption can be at any time,” said the Health Minister.
He said that as per the DMK manifesto, the government is against NEET in Tamilnadu and is acting towards the exemption of the examination in the state.
“We deny that the state is supporting NEET, but it is better that the students prepare for the examination in case the exemption is delayed. Though we are trying to get NEET exemption, the students should not remain unprepared for the test or they will be at a loss later,” he said at the COVID vaccination camp organised for leprosy patients.
