What officials have to say about ‘NEET 2017 Answer Key Release Date’ and its reasons for delay – It has been almost couple of weeks with the commencement of the NEET 2017 examination and the CBSE board responsible for conducting the common entrance test was expected to release the Answer Keys and the OMR Sheets on its official website cbseneet.nic.in by May 20. However, the board has no yet come up with the update about the same on its website. Students who have appeared for the examination are eagerly waiting for the release of the answer keys.
When contacted, officials for CBSE NEET were not available for comment on the expected date of the release of NEET 2017 Answer Keys. When questioned about the reasons for delay, here is what the officials had to say.
It might be worthwhile to mention that it is not easy to reach CBSE officials for any comment on NEET 2017. The on-going controversies surrounding the NEET 2017 exam and a possibility of a re-exam or a NEET 2 were also asked. The officials have firmly refused for the same. When asked whether the controversies were the reasons for delay, the officials had no comment. The only reply that was received from CBSE office for NEET 2017 was to keep checking the official website of cbseneet.nic.in for updates.
Sources close to board, however, commented that CBSE is at present stretched for resources and is employed in various examinations at the moment and the timely results of many are top priority at CBSE. The CBSE Class 12th Results for the academic year 2017 are also expected by this week.
Some even hinted that CBSE may release the answer keys after the results for Class 12th Board Examinations were announced.
Another CBSE official commented that releasing the Answer Key is not just a small task. CBSE also has to release the OMR Sheets for all the candidates. As such, all the sheets have to be scanned and uploaded on the server. With nearly 12 lakh students who appeared for the examination, expecting the answer keys within a week is highly illogical. Every OMR Sheet would be assessed, examined and scanned. These sheets are then to be linked to the roll numbers. At times some sheets are not scanned because of extensive blurring and dark pens. These sheets then further take more time, CBSE is currently working hard to ensure that no student is left out because of technical discrepancies. As such, the work is abundant and takes time. So CBSE is working hard, shared another source to ensure that the NEET 2017 Answer Keys are released in time.
Another source suggested that the NEET 2017 Answer Keys are most likely to be released after class 12th Results. At present, the sources speculated that the focus of the CBSE is on releasing Class 12th results. Admission process in the country are about to begin and therefore Class 12th results are very much important to give students enough time to apply. Though the person was not able to share any confirmed news about the possibilities, he is well aware of the workings of the Board. He said, that it would be right to focus first on Class 12 Results and then concentrate on NEET 2017 result compilation. There are larger stakes everywhere and the best thing to do at present is be patient.
CBSE Board would release the NEET 2017 Answer Key on its official web portal cbseneet.nic.in. Students who are eagerly waiting for the NEET 2017 answer keys are requested to keep checking for updates and notification on the official website.
