The Answer Keys of NEET 2017 have been released code-wise. There are a total of 21 codes released by the CBSE in the form of a single PDF document. The entire document has been made available for download on this page.
Candidates must note that the official answer key of NEET currently made available is only provisional in nature and the final official answer key will be issued after all the challenges have been filed by June 16 and verified by the CBSE.
Both the Official NEET 2017 Answer Key and NEET OMR Answer Sheets were expected to be released by May end, followed by release of NEET Result 2017 on June 8. Both of these were delayed following a stay order on NEET Results passed by the Madras High Court on May 24. Following a Supreme Court order passed on June 12 which overturned the stay order on NEET 2017 Results passed by the Madras High Court and allowed the CBSE to proceed with the results declaration before June 26, a new schedule was prepared by the CBSE and announced through an official notification released on the same day as the SC verdict.
Candidates will be able to challenge the NEET 2017 Answer Key by logging into their registered account until the evening (5 pm) of June 16. Candidates must note that similar to the display of NEET OMR Answer Sheet 2017, the NEET Answer Key and challenging process will also take place only over a duration of 2 days, and not for 3 days as was mentioned in the NEET information brochure.
