NEET 2020: Expected Date of Results Declaration

NEET 2020 results are expected to be released by October 12. Many sources claim that results might be out early next week, but chances of announcement seem bleak.

After 2 weeks of the exam, NTA released the NEET 2020 answer key on its official website. With the early release of the answer key, candidates predicted that results can be out anytime soon. But the OMR sheet display and recorded responses display did not occur on the expected date.

Once the OMR sheet is displayed, 3-4 days are given for candidates to object to them. After the challenge, the authority takes 3-4 days to review the challenges and release the result. So the result is not likely to be declared earlier than next week.
