CBSE declares NEET results
The Central Board of Secondary Education on Tuesday declared the combined results of the National Eligibility-Cum-Entrance Test (NEET-I and II) held on May 1 and July 24 for admission to undergraduate medical courses.
As per the Supreme Court’s decision, the CBSE has provided All India Rank to candidates. Het Shah topped the examination with Ekansh Goyal and Nikhil Bajiya securing second and third ranks. Admitting authorities will draw a merit list based on the All India Rank for MBBS/BDS seats falling under their jurisdiction and candidates will have to get in touch with their respective State/Institution for further information, the CBSE said in a statement.
