Tanuja Karregowda, the medical aspirant who Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa and Health Minister Dr K Sudhakar had helped to attend the NEET re-exam, reportedly cleared it with a score of 586 out of 720.

Chief Minister and Sudhakar, responding to Tanuja's social media post highlighting her plight, had intervened and asked officials to allow her to take the test, after which the Navodaya School student was able to write the examination at Basavanagudi Centre, an official release had said.

Daughter of a farmer, Tanuja Karregowda from Shikaripura in Shivamogga, Yediyurappa's hometown, could not attempt NEET in the first go as she had developed symptoms for the novel coronavirus disease.
