We have been helping Topden prepare for the NEET exam since May 2018, firstly at Sir Tashi Namgyal Senior Secondary School in Gangtok, then at Casaurina Scholars college in Siliguri. The NEET is the India-wide common entrance exam for medical college. On the 5th May he finally sat the exam. Topden thinks he did well, but the competition is fierce, so we have to wait for the results at the end of May to see whether his ambition has been realised. In the interim we have agreed to fund him through a 2 month IT course at Aptech Computer Institute in Gangtok.
