When a child starts seeming passionate about being a Doctor, the parents know that it is going to be a struggle for senior secondary school life. The parents know that the child is going to put in all his hard work to make the goal come true. They provide the child with all the necessary sources so that the child does not lag in any way.
The NEET exam is conducted by the National Testing Agency (NTA) every year. It is a national-level medical entrance examination conducted every year for the students to get admission to the MBBS, BDS, AYUSH, BVSc, and AH degrees in medical colleges. It is one of the toughest examinations which determine how much a student is dedicated and hardworking towards making a career in medicine. Students who wish to go into the world of Medicine are needed to appear for the NEET exam.
What makes NEET one of the most competitive exams in the country is the limited seats available in medical colleges. Every year Lakhs of students give the exam and only a few thousand of them get into MBBS colleges. Everyone above 17 years of age is eligible for giving the exam and the upper age limit is not yet decided. In such a scenario every year 2-3 Lakhs students get added to the ongoing competition.
To survive this neck to neck competition, the students need to be fully prepared to crack the exam and achieve their goals.
