After the NEET 2018 Results were announced on June 4, a total of 7,14,562 test takers were deemed qualified for the counselling round. A total of 12,69,922 candidates had appeared for the May 6 National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (NEET) administered by CBSE.

 

The outperforming states

 

Besides Rajasthan and Delhi, states like Haryana and Andhra Pradesh have also recorded a high success rate with as much as 73 per cent candidates qualifying for counselling from both the state, followed closely by Chandigarh at 72 per cent. Some other southern Indian states with a good qualifying percentage of candidates are Telangana (69%), Kerala (67%) and Karnataka (64%).

 

Manipur performs best amongst North-East states

 

Amongst the seven sister states from North-East, only Manipur has managed to reach a success percentage of 63, while the others have witnessed less than 50 per cent candidates qualifying for counselling from these states.

 

Exam centre allocation may have cost TN candidates heavily

 

The controversies that surrounded centre allocation for Tamil Nadu candidates outside the home state also reflected in the qualifying percentage of candidates from the state. Tamil Nadu is only third from bottom in the performance chart. The state has only 40 per cent candidates qualifying for counselling.

 

According to the official data on NEET Results, the Tamil Nadu witnessed only 45,336 candidates qualifying for counselling out of the total 1,14,602  appearing for the test from the state. According to the experts, centre allocation outside state might have resulted in poor performance of candidates from Tamil Nadu.

 

Many candidates from the state were allotted centre outside Tamil Nadu which led to protests where students and parents demanded re-allocation of test centre within state. The TN candidates had also filed a petition before the Madras High Court, demanding re-allotment of their exam centres to locations within the state.

 

Also, the TN candidates getting exam centres outside their state were deprived of their opted Tamil language paper as the question paper in a particular regional language is not made available outside that particular region.
