cheNNAI: 34.6% students of government schools in the state who took the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) this year have cleared the exam, according to data compiled by the Tamil Nadu School Education Department. While this is a significant improvement from last year, when only 24.2% of candidates from government schools cleared the exam, it is still well below the TN average of 51.2% (percentage of all students who qualified).
