The students, including girls, who have cleared the test, urged the government not to insist or press for exemption from NEET since their performance was good and expressed hope of getting admission into medical colleges on the basis of the scores. 

The government’s move to obtain exemption by passing an ordinance in the Assembly would come as a blow to many students who would be mentally upset, as they expected to get seats based on NEET score, for which they had prepared nearly for one year, they told reporters.
