New Delhi: Candidates, who appeared for the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test - UG (NEET 2017) - a mandatory test for admission to MBBS, BDS and other medical courses, were up for a surprise when official result information site results.nic.in announced that NEET 2017 result will be declared today i.e. June 20 but later deleted the announcement.
"CBSE Exam Results - NEET Exam Results - 2017 ... To be announced on June 20, 2017", the official result portal results.nic.in said.
Following the official announcement, candidates were hooked to internet waiting for their results the whole of today. But, the CBSE did not declare the results.
They were further confused after they found the announcement on results.nic.in deleted.
The NEET 2017 results are already delayed because of legal hurdles following petitions filed by some students in Madras High Court. All legal hurdles were cleared after the Supreme Court granted the CBSE permission to go ahead with NEET 2017 result declaration.
The Supreme Court also barred the high courts in the country from entertaining any petition on the entrance examination held for admission to various medical courses.
Consequently, the CBSE released the OMR sheets of the students on June 13 and the official Answer Keys on June 15. The CBSE has also given time till 05:00 pm to challenge the Answer Keys in case of any issue.

However because of the legal hurdles the CBSE could neither release the OMR Sheet of the students nor the NEET 2017 Answer Keys in time.
