The OMR sheet images will be available for two days instead of three days and candidates can challenge it until June 16, 5 pm.

The NEET exams were held on May 7 in 10 languages. While the results were supposed to be declared on June 8, the Madras High Court had put an interim stay on the results on May 24 after a petition had challenged the different sets of question papers for English and other vernacular languages.

However, the Supreme Court on June 12 overruled the Madras High Court's stay and ordered the Central Board of Secondary Examination to declare the results soon. While the apex court has asked the CBSE to declare the NEET 2017 results by June 26, the board is yet to reveal the exact date.
