A record number of 67 students, including eight from Tamil Nadu, have secured All India Rank 1 in the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) UG 2024 examination, results of which were announced on Tuesday, June 4.

Tamil Nadu has repeated it’s stellar performance this year too, stated the report by The New Indian Express.

Last year, state boy Prabanjan J had emerged as the national joint topper along with Bora Varun Chakravarthi of Andhra Pradesh scoring 99.99 percentile.

This year eight students from Tamil Nadu have scored a perfect 99.99 percentile and grabbed the rank 1 position:

- Syed Aarifin Yusuf M

- Shailaja S

- Aditya Kumar Panda

- Sriram P

- Rajaneesh P

- Jayathi Poorvaja M

- Rohith R

- Sabareesan S

While Syed Aarifin Yusuf M is topper in the male category in the state, Shailaja is the topper in the female category, stated a report by The New Indian Express.

According to experts, this is TN’s best performance in NEET in recent times.

“After Rajasthan, Tamil Nadu is the second state in the country with the highest share of AIR 1 rank holders,” said L Samuel, faculty at a NEET coaching centre.

"This year we have eight students with AIR 1 while last year six students from the state had featured in the top 50 list. This year’s performance is much better in comparison to last year," Samuel added.

Career consultant Jayaprakash Gandhi said that there will be fierce competition among students to grab a medical seat in their college of choice.

“This year’s question paper was easier than last year so it was expected that the number of students scoring more than 700 will be more compared to previous years,” he added.
