Is NTA Not Going To Release NEET OMR Responses?NTA Notice for display of OMR Sheet

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.

As per the various rumours and news sources, the expected date for NEET Result is 12th Oct 2020 or before. However, NTA has made no official announcement regarding this. If taking the previous year trends, the result could be announced within the first week of Oct 2020 i.e. within 3 or 4 days.
