‘I can’t do JEE’: 18-Year-Old Student Commits Suicide In Kota


New Delhi: Another student preparing for competitive exams died by suicide in Rajasthan’s Kota, marking the second incident this January. This highlights the growing issue of exam-related stress among coaching students. Kota, a hub for medical and engineering aspirants, witnessed a total of 30 student suicides last year.

The recent case involves an 18-year-old JEE aspirant from Kota’s Borkheda area. Despite immediate efforts by her family and prompt hospitalization, she was declared dead upon arrival. The police are investigating the circumstances surrounding her decision, and a post-mortem examination is underway.

A suicide note was found with the body, expressing her struggles and feelings of failure. The letter read, ‘Mummy, Papa, I can’t do JEE. So I suicide. I am a loser. I’m the worst daughter. Sorry Mummy, Papa. This is the last option I have.’

Living with her father, a bank employee, the victim was repeating her 12th class and faced intense pressure from competitive exams, despite dedicating seven to eight hours to daily studies.

This tragic event closely follows the suicide of another coaching student in Kota, who was preparing for the NEET entrance examination. Last year, a surge in student suicides led the Centre to issue guidelines to ease the pressure on coaching students. However, the effectiveness of these measures remains debatable.

Annually, over 2 lakh students come to Kota to prepare for exams like JEE and NEET.
