NTA score is not the same as the percentage of marks obtained. The percentile or NTA scores are normalised across multisession papers and based on the relative performance of all those who appeared for the examination in one session. The final ranks of the candidates are released taking into consideration the best of the two NTA scores.
The examination was conducted in 13 languages — Assamese, Bengali, English, Gujarati, Hindi, Kannada, Malayalam, Marathi, Odia, Punjabi, Tamil, Telugu and Urdu — across 574 centres in 287 cities (including 17 cities outside India).
Four candidates took the test in Indian languages and scored over 99 NTA score, with the topper in this category being Pansuriya Kashyap Ashokbhai (Gujarati) who scored 99.96 percentile.
NTA has withheld scores of 50 candidates which are under scrutiny. The cases of these candidates are being placed before a committee separately. Their NTA scores will be declared once the committee finalises its report.
As first reported by TOI, the attendance was 95.8% for Paper 1 (BE / BTech), the highest recorded for the exam and for the first time, registration of women surpassed the 30% mark (Paper 1 and Paper 2 combined).
