After much ado, including political posturing from leaders, medical aspirants from Tamil Nadu appeared for the national eligibility cum-entrance test (NEET) on Sunday.

Jha said that the Biology section contained two questions on frogs, which was not supposed to be included, according to a circular issued by the Central Board of Secondary Education - the nodal agency responsible for conducting NEET. A number of students leaving the exam centre could be seen with their shirts cut, some did not mind like Dhanush Raj from Tambaram, "I wasn't informed about the rule so I wore long sleeves, then they told me they need to cut it off, so I said okay". It was easier than a year ago.

Over 89,000 students appeared for the exams that were held in about 52 centres in cities including Chennai, Coimbatore, Madurai, Salem, Tiruchirapalli, Namakkal, Tirunelveli and Vellore. The institute claims that these NEET answer keys have been prepared by expert faculty at the institute based in Kota.

The NEET answer key is helpful in assessing the probable score in the examination.
