NEET answer key 2019: The answer key for the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) 2019 will be released after May 20, 2019 (Monday) at the official website ntaneet.nic.in. Talking to indianexpress.com, DG NTA, Vineet Joshi said, “The answer keys of the exam will be released only after the competitive exam is conducted in Odisha and Bengaluru as well.”
The NEET 2019 was conducted on May 5 but for the students from Odisha region or those whose centre was in Odisha, the medical entrance exam was postponed. The delay was caused as a result of cyclone Fani which disturbed the entire state and the neighbouring regions. Additionally, hundreds of students who missed their NEET 2019 exam due to train delay in Karnataka will also appear for the exam on May 20, 2019.
Earlier, the NEET answer key was scheduled to be released by the second week of May 2019. Students will also get a chance to raise objections against the answer key. The objections will be analysed and the final answer key will be released, thereafter. The result will be based on the final answer key. The NEET result 2019 is scheduled to be declared on June 5, 2019.
