Here are the scores

Anurag's scorecard, issued by the National Testing Agency (NTA), indicates that he obtained 185 marks out of 720, with a total percentile score of 54.84 (rounded off). However, a closer examination of his scores in individual subjects reveals a peculiar inconsistency. Anurag achieved 85.8 percentile in Physics, 51 percentile in Biology, but only 5 percentile in Chemistry.

Anurag's all-India rank is listed as 10,51,525, with his category rank as an OBC candidate being 4,67,824.

One of the remaining three students obtained a total score of 300 out of 720 in the examination, resulting in a percentile of 73.37 (rounded-off). Despite achieving an 87.8 percentile in Biology, this student obtained 15.5 and 15.3 percentiles in Physics and Chemistry, respectively.

In contrast, the scorecards of the other two students present a contrasting scenario, demonstrating good performance across all three subjects. One of these students secured a total score of 581 out of 720, while the other attained a score of 483.
