Supreme Court said in its judgement that the NEET results will be declared on 16th October.
The Apex court of India has allowed conducting the NEET exam again on 14th October for those students who were not able to give the exams due to Covid-19 containment zones or the travelling problems.
The court was requested to consider the students who failed to appear in the exam due to the mentioned reasons.
The apex court bench headed by Chief Justice SA Bobde accepted the submission and incorporated in its official court order.
“The NEET 2020 results, like the JEE Mains 2020 results should not take much time as NEET is the only entrance examination for medical and dental college admissions – and the counselling divided between central and states makes it a long process. The coronavirus pandemic has already had a devastating impact on the academic calendar.
The delay in the results will lead to delay in counselling, admissions, and eventually, starting the semester. Since another round of NEET 2020 is to be held for the candidates who had missed the exams after testing positive for COVID-19 it is going to be a long procedure and everything should be done within a set period to avoid unnecessary delay,” said Gaurav Tyagi, Founder of Career Xpert.
