Dear sir / madam,

My daughter is in 9th std now.

All our proofs are in tamilnadu (both for us (parents) as well for our daughter.

We are now in Mumbai as im working in mumbai..

To avail 85% state quota seats for Tamilnadu NEET, is it mandatory that she should do her 11th and 12th std in tamilnadu. (In that case we will have to get transferred to tamilnadu. Please also confirm if its mandatory to do 10th also in Tamil nadu only to avail the 85% quota.

R Balaji (Parent)
