The answer key for the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) is expected to be uploaded soon by the National Testing Agency on its website and candidates who have appeared for the exam are advised to keep an eye on the portal -- neet.nta.nic.in.
The NEET, the all-India examination to select candidates for undergraduate and postgraduate students in the field of medicine is conducted every year in the month of May. A total of 1.09 lakh seats are up for grabs and this time more than 16 lakh students appeared for the exam.
The answer key uploaded by the NTA will be the provisional answer key. Objections over the answers can be raised online, after paying a considerable fee. Objections can only be raised within the window of time provided by the NTA.
Raised objections will be verified by experts, which if found correct or valid will be changed in the answer key. All the changes made in the answer key will be published in the final answer key. The results of the exam will be based on the final exam key, with students able to check their own recorded responses against the answer key.
