NEW DELHI: Following their success in the NEET exams, students from Delhi government schools have once again excelled in the JEE Advanced, as announced on Friday.

A total of 158 students from these schools qualified for the JEE Advance, marking a significant achievement. Among them, 82 students hail from the esteemed Dr. B.R.
