This brings us to the biggest question: When will MCC announce NEET 2018 second round result? The answer to that lies in either of the above hearings or the upcoming decisions. From the legal and technical points presented it seems that MCC can go ahead and publish result and the same will be considered subject to final decisions of the court. However it may also be so that result be announced after the August 1 hearing.
On one hand NEET 2019 is inching closer; for the first time the national level medical entrance exam will be held in February and May, twice a year. This has opened up a good option for students who are not getting a seat this time to prepare for the upcoming exam and try their hand in 2019 admissions. However students are waiting to see if they can get a seat or not in NEET 2nd counselling. If not, only then they would start studying for NEET 2019 exam.
