Students were given the chance to raise objections, if any, as soon as the answer key was released, till last year. There seems to be a slight change this year. It is expected that the NEET 2020 results will be declared soon. Minister of Education Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank had said that the results will be released soon since the exam was postponed many times. No official date has been announced yet by the NTA about the declaration of results.
The score can be estimated by the candidates on the basis of their answer key. For every incorrect answer, they can deduct one mark, and for each correct answer, add four marks. Once the results are announced, the counseling will be conducted. On September 13, despite the COVID-19 pandemic, a total of 14.37 lakh students appeared in the entrance exam.
