Twenty candidates have scored perfect 100 in engineering entrance exam JEE-Main’s January edition, the National Testing Agency (NTA) announced on Tuesday.

All the candidates with 100 NTA score are males.

“The NTA scores of 50 candidates have been withheld as they are under scrutiny,” a senior NTA official said.
