Erode girl tops MBBS list under 7.5% govt quota

COIMBATORE: An Erode native girl has emerged a topper under the 7.5% quota for government school students in medical admission.

In the MBBS/BDS rank list, V Devadarshini, a student of Kavindapadi Government Girls Higher Secondary School in Erode, has grabbed the top rank by scoring 518/720 in NEET. She hails from ‘Pommanpatti’ panchayat in Kavindapadi.

Her mother, Kodeeswari, the sole breadwinner of the family, is working as an assistant in an ‘anganwadi’ centre. The girl’s father passed away in February this year. Her sister Sushmita is pursuing occupational therapy in a private college in Chennai.

“It was my childhood dream to become a doctor. I was confident of securing a medical seat, but never thought of emerging a topper. I am happy with the results,” she smiled.

Devadarshini is yet to decide on her area of specialisation in medicine. She passed Class 12 in 2020-21 by securing 576/600 marks. “I attempted NEET once. After that, I underwent coaching at a private centre in Namakkal with the financial support of some people,” she recalled.

With appreciation pouring in since morning, Devadarshini expressed her desire to render service to people of her village after she becomes a doctor. She aspires to join Madras Medical College in Chennai.
