“It is a golden opportunity for students for preparation” says Devika Sankar, a NEET 2020 aspirant
“It is a golden opportunity for students for preparation” says Devika Sankar, a NEET 2020 aspirant - The cases of Coronavirus across the country is increasing with the rapid speed. The growth in the COVID-19 positive cases are being normalised by following the rule of lockdown and staying safe at home. Seeing the current scenario, the National Testing Agency (NTA) has postponed the NEET 2020 exam date. The exact dates of the NEET events for medical aspirants is yet not announced by the authorities, as it depends upon the situation of the country. NEET is the single and biggest entrance exam for aspirants seeking admission in medical/dental/AYUSH/veterinary UG courses. These actions of regular procrastination of the NEET 2020 events are creating the panic situation in the minds of aspirants. Despite this, keeping the quote of Denis Waitley in mind that “Procrastination is the fear of success. People procrastinate because they are afraid of the success that they know will result if they move ahead now. Because success is heavy, carries a responsibility with it, it is much easier to procrastinate and live on the "someday I'll" philosophy.”
Candidates can take this situation as an advantage in their preparation for NEET 2020. To know the current situation in the mind of NEET aspirants, Careers360 interacted with many students. Devika Sankar, a NEET 2020 applicant and appearing for her 12th board this year, is also one of the affected aspirants due to regular postponements in the date of conduction of medical exam events. Candidates can go through the article below to know the details about how positively Devika has taken this and preparing for NEET 2020 during the lockdown along with the daily routine, preparation strategies and all other relevant information.

So if I use this time properly, I’m sure I will get a good rank on NEET exam with the help of my online classes.

Careers360 - What are your views on the continuous postponements of exam related events?

The continuous postponements of exams are parts of control measures taken by the government to fight against Covid-19. So all these sufferings are for the well being of the people of the country and for a better tomorrow.
Careers360 - As it can be seen in the current scenario that doctors are facing from certain sections of people and how they are brutally treated by the masses. How do you see it and how does it affect your determination?
Devika Sankar - These brutal treatment by the masses against the doctors shows that there is considerably a big lack of social awareness against epidemic diseases in the society. Also, it is high time to have more specialist doctors in the field of community medicines. Hence I am determined to go for a master degree in community medicine.
