In the 620 and above marks range, Delhi replaces Bihar in top eight.

While in ‘general’ and OBC categories securing a seat in a government medical college with a NEET score of 400 would be difficult, even in the high marks range of 620 and above, nearly 66% of candidates are from these states.

Apart from this, there are 52,720 seats in Ayush programmes and 603 BVSc (Bachelor of veterinary science) and animal husbandry seats. Admissions for bachelor courses in homoeopathic and Unani medicines are also based on NEET-UG scores.

Among those with scores of 400 and above, Rajasthan has the highest share (12. 3%), followed by Uttar Pradesh (11. 8%) and Maharashtra (9. 9%). Bihar, Karnataka, Kerala, Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu, and West Bengal account for 64. 3% of the candidates in this mark range.

The other states with more than 3,000 government college seats each are Gujarat, Karnataka, Rajasthan and West Bengal.

Seats are filled under two categories in government medical colleges — 15% under AIQ (All India Quota) for those domiciled outside the state and the rest under state quota. 
The total number of candidates with NEET score of 550 and above this year is 64,520 and the majority of such candidates are from Delhi, Kerala, Maharashtra, Rajasthan and UP.

Zone – wise results

Kangkan Kalita, Hemali Chhapia & Yogita Rao TNN, June 19, 2023: The Times of India

Guwahati/Mumbai : The IIT Hyderabad zone produced six rankers in the top 10 in JEE (Advanced) 2023, the results of which were declared by IIT-Guwahati. Apart from hogging the top 10 list, the Hyderabad zone also saw the largest pool of candidates — 10,432 — to qualify.

After Hyderabad, the largest pool of qualified candidates are from the Delhi (9,290) and Bombay zones (7,957).

JEE-A qualifying cutoff soars to 86, up from last year’s 55

Category-wise, the number of students from the open or general category are at its lowest since 2018, at 14,006, as compared to 15,277 in 2022. That has been offset by a larger share of Scheduled Caste candidates who made the cut; SC numbers increased from 7,998 to 11,021, taking the overall pool of qualified students to 43,773 as compared to last year’s 40,712. A total of 1.8 lakh candidates took JEE (Advanced) 2023.

Vavilala Chidvilas Reddy topped the rank list with his impressive score of 341/360, a significant jump over the previous year’s all-India topper, who scored 314. Among female candidates, Nayakanti Naga Bhavya Sree (AIR 56), also from the IIT Hyderabad zone, is the topper. She scored 298/ 360. Two candidates, each from IIT Delhi and IIT Roorkee zone, secured positions in top 10. Officiating director of IIT-G, PK Iyer, dialled both toppers, who expressed willingness to pursue computer science engineering.

Nayakanti said she may opt for mathematics and computing.
Overall, the qualifying overall cutoff this year has increased to 86 as compared to 55 last year. For the reserved categories, too, the minimum qualifying aggregate scores have risen. Prof Bishnupada Mandal, organising chairperson, JEE (Advanced) 2023, said there were fewer negative marking questions this year, compared to previous editions of the exam. “That could have resulted in the exam’s higher cut-off this year,” he said.
Subject-wise qualifying scores are also up after several years of only dipping cutoffs.
