NTA conducted the NEET 2020 on 13th September all over the country. Many candidates have expected that the NEET 2020 Results are going to be announced in the last week of September 2020, as the exams have already been delayed due to COVID-19. But it seems that NTA is planning to announce the result for NEET (UG) 2020 around the first week of October 2020.
NTA has already released the NEET 2020 Answer Keys for candidates along with the challenge window. However, the candidates have not been able to check their responses in the exam as NTA has not yet released the OMR Response Sheets.

Is NTA Not Going To Release NEET OMR Responses?
This whole academic year has been delayed amid the COVID-19 pandemic. NEET 2020 was delayed by about 5 months, consequently delaying the admission process to various medical colleges of India. As NEET is conducted in pen and paper mode (using OMRs), it will be a long and tough task for providing the scanned OMR response sheets to each and every candidate. Due to these factors, it is possible that NTA might skip this step before releasing the NEET 2020 Results.
When Is NTA Going To Announce NEET 2020 Result?
According to the information bulletin on the official website, the exam date and result date as per the original schedule (before COVID-19) was 1 month apart.
