The sudden declaration of the result, which was originally expected only by June 20, 2018, led to a tremendous surge in traffic on the official JIPMER Puducherry website and its subsequent crash, preventing many candidates from accessing their marks.
About the JIPMER MBBS Merit Lists
As per the norm, JIPMER Puducherry releases the result of JIPMER MBBS in the form of Overall and Category-wise merit lists initially before releasing individual rank letters. The Category-wise merit lists are released for the Unreserved Category, OBC Category, SC Category, ST Category, Puducherry-UR Category, Puducherry-OBC Category, Puducherry-SC Category, Puducherry-ST Category, NRI/OCI Category, PwD-OPH Category and the Puducherry-PwD-OPH Category. While the Category-wise merit lists will only showcase the candidate’s Rank, Roll Number, Name, Date of Birth and Percentile, the two Overall Merit Lists will include significantly more details apart from these, including the number of negative responses, seperate percentiles scores in Biology, Chemistry, English Language & Comprehension and Logical & Quantitative Reasoning, before finally indicating the candidate’s eligibility.
To qualify JIPMER, Unreserved and NRI/OCI candidates are required to score in the 50th percentile and above. General-PH candidates need to score in the 45th percentile and above while SC/ST/OBC candidates need to score in 40th percentile and above. Only these candidates will be eligible for admissions as indiciated in the the Overall Merit List.

Overlap of NEET and JIPMER toppers
JIPMER MBBS is one of India’s three undergraduate medical entrance examinations offering admissions to MBBS courses, the other two being the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) and the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) MBBS entrance exam. NEET is the largest of the three entrances, with over 12 lakh candidates appearing for the approximately 60,000 MBBS seats on offer. AIIMS MBBS, conducted by AIIMS New Delhi, offers a total of 800 MBBS seats across nine AIIMS campuses. More than 3 lakh candidates had appeared for the AIIMS entrance, conducted on May 26 and May 27 this year. JIPMER MBBS, held on June 3 this year as the smallest of the three exams offering admissions to only 200 MBBS seats across its Puducherry and Karaikal campuses, still saw close to 2 lakh aspirants try their luck.
Unsurprisingly, many of the toppers of NEET 2018 (the result of which was declared on June 4) have secured the top 50 ranks in JIPMER MBBS as well. Apart from the topper, Ankadala Anirudh Babu, other NEET toppers who secured good ranks in JIPMER include the NEET 2018 AIR 1, Kalpana Kumari, who has secured AIR 33 in JIPMER, and Rohan Purohit, the AIR 2 in NEET 2018 who has secured AIR 29 in JIPMER MBBS.
Prerak Tripathi, the Uttar Pradesh student who secured AIR 33 in NEET, has secured AIR 2 in JIPMER behind Anirudh Babu. Gujarat resident Amitabh Pankaj Chauhan, AIR 34 in NEET 2018, has emerged as the AIR 4 in JIPMER MBBS 2018. Keerthana K, the NEET AIR 12 and Tamil Nadu top ranker, rounds off the JIPMER MBBS top 5.
