Out of the top 50 candidates who successfully qualified the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test, nine are from the national capital Delhi, while six candidates each have qualified from Uttar Pradesh and Rajasthan. The National Testing Agency (NTA) released the results for NEET 2019 on June 5, 2019, around 1 pm.
West Bengal, Andhra Pradesh and Haryana also have a substantial number of candidates (three each) in the list of toppers. The other states who feature in the list of the top 50 are Kerala (3), Jharkhand (2), Maharashtra (3), Punjab (2), Madhya Pradesh (3), Gujarat (3), Telangana and Karnataka. Among the list of top 50 NEET 2018 all-India toppers released last year, Delhi led the way with the highest number of toppers coming from the national capital, closely followed by Gujarat.
Something that stood out in the top 50 list is that only seven female candidates could make it to the list while the 43 others were all male candidates, unlike last year. In 2018, number of female candidates were more than males who qualified the exam, however, only 3 of them have figured in top 25 which was again lesser compared to NEET 2017, which saw nine female candidates featuring in top 25.
