The National Board of Examinations (NBE) is the conducting authority that will release the final NEET PG 2021 answer key after the results have been declared. Usually, the exam conducting authority releases the provisional answer key right after the exam is conducted, giving students the chance to challenge or raise objections against the answer key. However, since the NEET PG exam is an online, computer-based test (CBT), the exam conducting authority keeps the contents of the question paper confidential. Various coaching institutes will release provisional NEET PG 2021 answer keys solely based on memory. The students can raise objects based on these answer keys, but these should not be considered absolute. Candidates will be able to calculate their probable scores using the provisional answer keys. Read on to know more about the NEET PG 2021 answer key.
