SRINAGAR: The National Testing Agency (NTA) on September 7 declared the results of the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET-UG) 2022 today. Along with the result, NTA released the final answer key. Candidates who appeared for the exam will be able to check the result at neet.nta.nic.in. or nta.ac.in.
This year, a total of 18.72 lakh candidates registered for the entrance test. The NEET UG exam was conducted on July 17 with over 95 per cent of the registered candidates appearing in the exam. NEET UG was held across 3,570 centres in 497 cities in India and in 14 cities in foreign nations.
From this year onwards, NTA has introduced the process of assigning fictitious roll numbers to the OMR answer sheets of all candidates who appeared in NEET in order to keep the evaluation process secure and confidential. This measure ensures that the examiner is not biased towards a candidate because she is unable to identify the examinee’s roll number. However, NEET-UG is evaluated by a software and human intervention occurs only while answer sheets are physically transported or fed into the computer for evaluation.
