Karvanna Prabu K.K., who has scored 572 and been ranked fifth among the male candidates with physical handicap in the country in NEET, wants to study in the All India Institute of Medical Sciences or Jipmer.
Hailing from Karur, Prabu is the son of Kannan, a surgeon and Kousalya, a gynaecologist.
The couple run a clinic in Karur.
Prabu has locomotor disability, caused by congenital cerebral palsy. “My disability is 60% but I am mobile,” says the candidate who completed Class 10 from a State Board school with 491 marks.
He switched to a CBSE stream school in Namakkal with the aim of writing NEET. He scored 476 in Class 12.
“I was a day scholar and lived with my grandparents,” says Prabu, who has taken both AIIMS and Jipmer entrance tests.
He says he concentrated only on NEET though his school offered him an integrated coaching for the Joint Entrance Examination for admission to the Indian Institutes of Technology.
About coaching, he said the school had hired experts from outside to help students crack NEET.
