Meanwhile, the NTA had earlier said that several factors are to be attributed to the unprecedented 67 students sharing the first All India Rank in NEET UG 2024.

According to NTA, an easier exam, a surge in registrations, a question with two correct answers, and grace marks due to a loss of examination time are some of the factors that can be attributed to the reasons behind students getting higher scores. A total of 20.38 lakh students registered for the NEET UG 2024 exam, of which 11.45 lakh candidates qualified.
