The National Testing Agency (NTA) has finally declared the results of NEET 2021 on 1st November 2021 for admission in various medical courses. NEET 2021 exam was held on 12th September and the answer key was released on 15th October 2021. The results were emailed to the students in their respective email addresses and the students can also download the scorecard from the official website of NTA.
This year, more than 15 lakh students appeared for the exam. For adopting unfair exam techniques, the NTA has suspended the results of 15 candidates. Several examples of impersonation and even exam leaks have surfaced in exams this year. But, overcoming all these challenges, the students who scored 50th percentile this year are eligible to take admission in various medical UG courses.
Those who received scores in the range of 147 to 720 were in the 50th percentile last year. This year, the score ranged from 138 to 720. There is a slight drop in the cut-off marks. Those in the reserved group must pass with scores in the 40th percentile or 45th percentile, depending on the category.
By now, all the students must have received the email of their results but they can download their scorecards from the official website of NTA. They need to enter their application number, date of birth and security pin to get access to their results. Other relevant information regarding counselling and admission will be updated on the official website of NEET. You can also check Vedantu's official website (vedantu.com) for further details.
