Compensating candidates from a centre in Warangal, Telangana who were made to write their NEET 2017 paper in Hindi and English despite opting for Telugu language, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has organized a re-exam for them on Wednesday, May 17. As per media reports, 230 candidates were invited to appear for the NEET Re-test which was held at St. Peters Central Public School in Hanamkonda, Warangal. Out of the 230 candidates, 228 were to appear for the exam in their chosen language of Telugu while the remaining two would appear for the exam in Hindi, 10 days after they were denied the opportunity to appear for the exam in their language of choice. While the CBSE did not issue an official notification regarding the re-conduct of the exam for the Warangal candidates, it has been understood that the students and parents were informed about the schedule and venue directly.

 

As reported by Careers360 on May 12, the Warangal incident was just one in a long line of controversies plaguing the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) 2017, with allegations of paper leaksincreased difficulty of regional papers and aggressive frisking at certain exam centres being some of the other issues grabbing headlines.

 

All of these incidents have led student groups and activists across the country to demand for a re-test for NEET 2017, leading MHRD Minister Prakash Javadekar to assure them that the CBSE will be issuing a clarification regarding these issues soon. While the students demanding for the exam to be held again may feel encouraged by the fact that the CBSE agreed to re-conduct NEET for candidates at the Warangal centre following strong complaints and protests conducted by parents and their wards, it must be remembered that the Board realized it had no other option as it had its own incompetency to blame in not being able to supply candidates with the Telugu or Hindi papers as per their choice. Whether it takes a similarly self-critical view with regard to the other NEET controversies and accedes to the demands of candidates for re-conducting NEET 2017 for all remains to be seen.

ln this stream of neet there are many ups and downs are coming in practice exams which resulting into low self confidence due to low confidence we will be never there to give our best how to sustain motivated till final neet ug and do our best?

Priyaanka Sarkar Student Expert 17th Feb, 2020

Truth be told, NEET is one of the highest competitive entrance exams after 12th. And for every 1 Medical seat, statistics state that approximately 20-25 students apply. So you are in a race with another 24 Candidates whose dream only has been too become a Doctor, just like yours. Now with the kind of competition involved, stress, anxiety are bound to happen and this might result in Lower self confidence. Infact that is the normal cycle of a student. If your confidence doesn't get a little low you might never realise the intensity of the exam. Until you take a dip, you would never know the depth of the sea. At times, it is good to feel low because that is when you know how to pull up the strings and evolve much stronger. Now brain is an organ and it also needs rest. With the amount of pressure, that it goes through, it is bound to feel tired and that is the reason why we suffer from Brain fade at times. Try a SWOT analysis on yourself. Like write down your strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats to your motivation. If your strength is your memory power, use it to your advantage. Keep switching between subjects every hour or 2 so that the brain is kept fresh and doesnt get monotonous. For example, if you are studying from 10am to 5pm, study Physics for one hour, then shift to Chemistry and then to Biology. Do that every hour. And on Sunday mornings, take a mock test and in the evenings, take rest. That way your brain is refreshed. If your weakness that you cannot wake up early, compensate by studying until a little late in the night. Always tweak your lifestyle according to your strengths and what works in your favour. And always remember that Rome was not built in a day and a career is a diligent process.
