However, one should not be entirely dependent on coaching and needs to be focused on self-study because at the end its hard work and study hours which brings success.

my fathers surname in 10th & 12th marksheet is Sudhir sharma but in my Aadhar it is Sudhir Kumar will this create problem during admission in neet.?

Rehan Alam Student Expert 23rd Feb, 2020

Dear aspirant

No this will not create any problem as aadhar is still optional in most of the cases and where it is mandatory it is not that hard checked for spelling and surnames. If you have right name in both of your marksheet then you are good to go. Just make sure to not repeat this mistake in your mbbs marksheet and continue the consistency within marksheets.

Hope this helps. Thanks.
