COIMBATORE: The success story of GM Mukesh Kanna, an engineering drop-out on his way to fulfilling the dream of becoming a doctor — thanks to NEET — is sure to give you hope. Mukesh completed his Class 12 in 2015.

While his engineering cut-off stood at 199.25, his medical cut-off was 193.75. That combined with the low All India Pre-Medical Test (AIPMT) score (392 out of 720 marks) robbed him off of his medical aspirations.

He gave up and joined engineering. When NEET was made mandatory for admission to medical colleges in Tamil Nadu. Mukesh, then entering the second year of engineering, saw that as the universe conspiring to help him realise his goal. Jumping to the call, he dropped out of college and enrolled himself into a coaching centre.

Eight months of coaching and an exam later, Mukesh has now ranked second in the State with a score of 655. He has secured 203rd position in All India quota bank list. He got admission to Coimbatore Medical College and Hospital (CMCH) and he could not have asked for more.
