Nancy Rani of Ferozepur district topped the state scoring 644 out of 650 marks (99.08 per cent). The second position was secured by Dilpreet Kaur of Sangrur district. Although Kaur scored the same as Rani, her rank was decided based on PSEB’s age formula. A younger candidate takes precedence over an older candidate while deciding ranks. Rani is younger than Kaur and hence declared first in the state. Komalpreet Kaur, who secured 642 marks (98.77 percent marks), came third.
