Village boy from Rajasthan who clears NEET in the sixth attempt wants to become a cardiologist

Posted on Monday, July 8, 2019

Jodharam Patel, from a remote village called Dedawas ka Goliya, clears the NEET exams in the sixth attempt, reports Gayatri Nanda

After five years of consistently failing the National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (NEET) Jodharam Patel was losing hope until he cleared the exam this year by securing an all-India rank of 3,886. He had performed poorly in his class X examination and was encouraged to find work as manual labour to support his family.
 
“People in my village want youngsters to work and support their families financially, instead of studying. I wanted to prove them wrong, which is why I consistently worked hard for five years,” says Jodharam. He is the first one to clear the NEET exams in his village.
 
“Unfortunately my village does not have proper educational facilities. I had to shift to Jodhpur to study in a public school to fulfil my dreams.” It was his school principal who motivated him to take these exams. “For a long time, I was not even aware of NEET,” said Jodharam. He hopes to get admission in Jodhpur Sampurnanand Medical College through his NEET ranking and aspires to be a cardiologist.
