Het Shah from Gujarat emerged as the topper of National Eligibility cum Entrance Test for medical admissions, results of which were declared by the CBSE on Tuesday. This is the combined result of the two phases of the test that had been mandatory by the Supreme Court earlier this year.

Of the over eight lakh students who had appeared for the test in two phases held in May and July, about half of them have qualified and girls have outshined the boys, the CBSE, which conducted the test, said.

While Shah came out on top with 685 marks out of 720, Ekansh Goyal (682) and Nikhil Bajiya (678) secured the second and third ranks in the all-India test.

The results can be accessed on the websites, www.aipmt.nic.in, www.cbse.nic.in and www.cbseresults.nic.in. Results are also available in the Centre’s DigiLocker website (http://results.digilocker.gov.in), a collaborative effort by CBSE and DigiLocker, which is mobile-friendly.

In addition, the CBSE has made arrangements to provide rank letters for those who have qualified for the 15 per cent all-India seats through DigiLocker, an initiative that has been done for the first ever time this year.

Starting this year, CBSE will also provide NEET rank letters to the candidates qualifying for 15% All India seats through DigiLocker at https://digilocker.gov.in/.

The candidates who have been qualified will now have to complete the formalities and admission with the respective counselling authorities like Director General of Health Services, Armed Forces Medical College, Medical Education Directorates of each state, institutions and universities.
