569 Delhi Govt School Students Crack NEET

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, who praised these accomplish, said on Tuesday that 569 Delhi government school students had passed the National Eligibility Cum Entry Test (NEET)—the entrance examination for medical courses — this year, the results of which were announced last Friday.

"379 (67%) of the 569 Delhi government school students who cracked NEET this year are girls. At least 48 of these students scored more than 500 out of 720 NEET. At least 29 of these students are from Sarvodaya Kanya Vidyalaya (SKV) in MolarBand, 24 from SKV Yamina Vihar (C1) and 23 from SKV Noor Nagar. Girls from Delhi government schools performed really well in the medical entrance test, "said Kejriwal.

Among the students lauded by Kejriwal during a digital press conference was Tamanna Goyal, 20, who did not know about the existence of NEET till she passed from Rajkiya Pratibha Vikas Vidyalaya (RPVV) in Rohini Sec-11 in 2018. She lives with her mother, a staffer at a private doctor’s clinic, and a younger brother, in Shahbad Dairy.

She has scored 695 marks in NEET and secured 11th rank in the Economically Weaker Section (EWS) category.

Khush Garg, 18, who secured the 709 all-India rank in NEET could not join a coaching class due to his family’s financial condition. A resident of Krishna Nagar, whose father runs a small shop in Shahdara, Garg said that with the help of his school teachers in RPVV Gandhi Nagar, he managed to clear NEET.

This year, 443 Delhi government school students cleared the JEE (Main) and, of them 53 further cracked the JEE (Advanced) for admission in IITs.
