Among the 72 candidates occupying the top 3 positions, a stark dominance emerged—53 hailed from engineering disciplines, while a smaller cohort of 19 represented non-engineering backgrounds. This marked disparity underscores the prevalence of engineering expertise among the highest achievers in this prestigious examination.

Remarkably, within this elite group, 14 individuals attained a perfect 100 percentile. Of these top scorers, only one woman claimed a spot in the 99.99 percentile category.
