Hyderabad: Erla Satvik Reddy from Hyderabad who topped the All India Institute of Medical Sciences exam this year got 31th rank in the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (Neet) — 2016.
CBSE announced the results for Phase-I and Phase-II of Neet on Tuesday, a day before it was scheduled to be released. Satvik achieved the best rank from the two Telugu states in Neet followed by Premlal, also from Hyderabad who achieved 134 rank.
Neet is applicable for admissions in 15 per cent seats in government colleges across the country except in AP and TS and for private college management quota seats including the two Telugu states. Eamcet is the only exam for admissions to government and private medical colleges in the two states.
NEET first rank from Gujarat
While Andhra Pradesh has completed the Eamcet process, due to leakage of question paper, Telangana state will be conducting Eamcet-3 for admission into medical seats in the month of September.
Het Shah of Gujarat secured all India first rank in NEET by scoring 685 out of 720 marks. Officials records registered a total of 7,31,223 students appeared for the exams of which 3.37,572 were male, 3,93,642 were female and 15 were transgenders; 19,325 students qualified for the 15 per cent all India quota in government colleges for MBBS and BDS courses and 4,09,477 qualified over all in the examination.
NO SC relief on neet merit list issue
The Supreme Court on Tuesday declined to pass an interim order directing the Medical Council of India and the CBSE to declare a separate merit list for CBSE and State Board students in the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (Neet) held on July 24 for medical admissions in private colleges across the country.
A Bench of Justices Kurian Joseph and Shiva Kirti Singh, however, issued notice to the Centre, the Medical Council of India and CBSE on a batch of writ petitions from S. Rishesh and 20 others challenging the Neet ordinance (which has now become an Act) exempting Government colleges from Neet and providing for admission of students in medical colleges only through Neet.
