NEET Result 2016 : Result declared a day earlier, students surprised yet relieved

The results of NEET 2016 were supposed to be announced tomorrow, 17 August, 2016. However, in an unconventional move, CBSE declared the results a day earlier, much to the surprise of the stakeholders.

Dr. Sanyam Bhardwaj, Officer of Special Duty (OSD) – NEET 2016 says, “The results were supposed to be declared ‘by’ August 17, 2016 and not necessarily on that date. Since the evaluation process was complete, we chose to declare the results today,” 

This has bought a great amount of delight among the students despite the surprise. “I was expecting the results to be declared tomorrow. Not even in the wildest dreams did I think it will be declared today. But, I am happy with my score. I was shocked with the news but, this has turned out to be a pleasant surprise,” says Anuja Budge, an aspirant from Mumbai. She now plans to pursue B.D.S.

Unlike most competitive exams where students have been waiting anxiously for the results to be declared, the NEET results have come as a pleasant surprise. As of now, there have been no reports of server crash or shutdown of websites by the aspirants either.
