  This year, close to 3,500 NEET candidates from Tamil Nadu had to travel to Kerala to write the exam this year, which also caused protests from various groups in the state.
  In another development, this year, activists protested outside the CBSE’s office in Chennai on May, one day after the exam, demanding that the NEET in Tamil Nadu be scrapped. The immediate trigger was the death of three parents who were escorting their children to NEET centres. 
   CBSE has  declared NEET 2018 result.  The pass percentage of boys and girls in the NEET exam is almost equal (approximately 56%). Online counselling process will begin soon.
