The release of the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) results has sparked controversy. While thousands of students are celebrating their success, many are feeling cheated and are grappling with disappointment and despair. Among them is Ayushi Patel, a student from Lucknow, who finds herself in an unexpected predicament.

Ayushi, who expected a near-perfect score of 715 out of 720 based on her answer key check, was shocked to discover that her result was not released by the National Testing Agency (NTA). The reason given by the NTA left her stunned, prompting her to seek justice at the Lucknow High Court.

Ayushi's mother, Shashi Patel, is devastated. "This is unfair to my daughter," she says with tears in her eyes. Shashi recounts how dedicatedly Ayushi attended coaching classes every morning and studied late into the night, often skipping meals to avoid falling asleep. This level of dedication, she believes, deserves recognition.

In response to the situation, Ayushi has filed a petition with the Lucknow bench of the High Court, demanding that the NEET result process be halted until her OMR sheet is thoroughly reviewed and a decision is made. Her father, Santosh Patel, runs a small medical store in Alambagh, while her mother is a homemaker. Despite their modest means, they supported Ayushi's educational aspirations wholeheartedly.
