NEET Result 2020 : Why Soyeb was declared rank 1st & Akansha was rank 2nd

PUBLISH DATE 21st October 2020

NEET 2020 results were declared on October 16, and since the day of its declaration, many people are puzzled. This year two people Soyeb Aftab and Akansha Singh made history by getting perfect scores i.e., 720 out of 720. But Soyeb was declared rank 1 and Akansha was declared rank 2.



National Testing Agency (NTA), an Indian government agency which looks after the entrance examinations for higher educational institutions, uses tie-breaking to decide ranks of candidates in case one or more candidates have received the same overall score.

In the case of a tie between two students in NEET, there are four factors that are taken into consideration:

1) The person scoring higher in Biology ranks higher in case of a tie.

2) If both the person score the same mark in Biology, then the person with higher chemistry mark is given a higher rank.

3) But if both the students score the same in both the subjects, then the one having the least number of incorrect answers will be ranked higher.

4) But if neither of the above factors can break the tie, then the one with more age will get a higher rank.

In this case, Since both gained 720/720, but the age of Soyeb Akhtar is 18 and Akansha Singh's is 17 years. Thus, based on the NEET tie-breaker formula, Soyeb was declared Rank 1.

Hence, the theory of minority appeasement or religious discrimination is completely ruled out.
