Meet Ambika who did not let disability affect her academic performance
Ambika D Metre, from Dongaon village in Karnataka’s Bidar district, has secured the all-India third rank among physically disabled students in the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) exam. It is an entrance exam in India for students who want to study any graduate medical course in government or private medical colleges.
Ambika who also suffers from a heart-related disease, has never allowed her physical disability to affect her academic dreams.
Despite living in a village and studying in a Kannada-medium school, Ambika has scored 287 out of 720 marks in the exam.
Ambika said focusing on her studies and spending less time on social media, mobile phone and television helped her to clear the exams with good marks. She thanked her parents and teachers for helping her work hard and achieve success in the exams.
