Exam centre allocation may have cost TN candidates heavily

According to the official data on NEET Results, the Tamil Nadu witnessed only 45,336 candidates qualifying for counselling out of the total 1,14,602 appearing for the test from the state. According to the experts, centre allocation outside state might have resulted in poor performance of candidates from Tamil Nadu.
Many candidates from the state were allotted centre outside Tamil Nadu which led to protests where students and parents demanded re-allocation of test centre within state. The TN candidates had also filed a petition before the Madras High Court, demanding re-allotment of their exam centres to locations within the state.
Also, the TN candidates getting exam centres outside their state were deprived of their opted Tamil language paper as the question paper in a particular regional language is not made available outside that particular region.
