As students awaited the NEET 2020 results on Monday, the Supreme Court directed that students, who could not appear in National Eligibility cum Entrance Test because of COVID-19 or due to being stuck in containment zones, be given the chance to appear in the test on October 14. And thus the results will be declared on October 16, 2020.
The National Testing Agency (NTA) was scheduled to announce the results by 1 pm on Monday before the SC directive.

Around 13 lakh candidates appeared for the examination held in pen and paper mode on September 13.
