The results of the NEET 2017, conducted for admission to Bachelor of Medicine and Surgery (MBBS) and Bachelor of Dental Sciences (BDS) courses in medical and dental colleges across the country, were announced by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) on Friday.

"I was expecting good rank but I had not thought that I will top the entrance exam," Navdeep, who wants to get admission in the MBBS course at Maulana Azad Medical College, Delhi, said.

Reports said that five students from Punjab and Haryana are ranked in the top 25 positions in the NEET results.

Nikita Goyal and Tanisha Bansal, both from Punjab, secured the 8th and 10th rank respectively. Kanish Tayal and Aditi Goyal from neighbouring Haryana secured 7th and 22nd ranks, respectively.
