Ever since the HRD Minister, Mr. Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank, announced the new date for the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET 2020) candidates had started their preparations vigorously. But due to the nationwide lockdown, students are facing difficulties with their preparations. Understanding this problem being faced by NEET Aspirants, the government of Tamil Nadu has come up with a potent solution. As per the recent announcements by the state education minister, the Tamil Nadu government will be providing free coaching to the students interested in appearing for NEET 2020.

Tamil Nadu Government has made extensive arrangements for offering free NEET 2020 coaching to the deserving students. The government has made boarding and lodging arrangements in 10 government colleges across the state. Students from government schools in Tamil Nadu will be able to avail of this facility. Teachers are also being trained for NEET 2020 coaching and are presently undergoing a two-week training program. The government is also providing the facility of online coaching classes for the students.
