NEET Answer key
The answer key is what the examiners refer to when they evaluate this given paper. It is released to the public a while after the exam along with the respective question paper and if any mistake found, they can be challenged.
Challenge costs 1000 rupees and if the error found is true, the money is refunded. its a simple process but the board’s way of making sure that not everybody keeps asking for wrong corrections that end up delaying the evaluation.
As of April 2020, the exam has been postponed due to the health pandemic and the answer key will only be released late June. Leaving you with plenty of time to study at home with the Entri app.
