However, this year for getting admission into medical colleges candidates scored fewer marks in this NEET exam. The NEET-UG score range required to be in the 40th percentile — which happens to be the cut-off percentile for reserved category candidates — is at an all-time low this year.

Tanishka from Rajasthan is the topper. This year, a total of 18.72 lakh candidates registered for the entrance test. The NEET UG exam was conducted on July 17 with over 95 per cent of the registered candidates appearing in the exam. NEET UG was held across 3,570 centres in 497 cities in India and in 14 cities in foreign nations.

Out of the total 18,72,343 students who registered for the exam, 17,64,571 appeared for it and 9,93,069 qualified the exam.

The maximum number of candidates opted for English as their language of instruction (14,76,024) followed by Hindi (2,58,827). Gujarati was the third most preferred language (49,638) and the most preferred regional language.

From this year onwards, NTA has introduced the process of assigning fictitious roll numbers to the OMR answer sheets of all candidates who appeared in NEET in order to keep the evaluation process secure and confidential. This measure ensures that the examiner is not biased towards a candidate because she is unable to identify the examinee’s roll number. However, NEET-UG is evaluated by a software and human intervention occurs only while answer sheets are physically transported or fed into the computer for evaluation.
