I’ll tell you the case of two people I know. Not made up, real stories.
There’s this girl I know who wasted a year drop after class 12th in various distractions and she didn’t study at all. She gave the exam, obviously because she didn’t study at all she got somewhere in 200’s in AIPMT. She didn’t get any college, wasn’t willing to pay heavy donations in private college so she decided to straighten herself up and take one last drop.
Because she knew she barely studied, she started afresh and next year – which means this year – she got around 590 in NEET – 2.
