Anxiety gripped city students as their wait for the NEET results got longer and longer here on Friday. The reason behind the delay was that the website crashed. After the announcement that the NEET results had been declared, the site got crashed and the students and their parents spent the entire evening trying hard to know their results.

- It was only in the evening that students got to know their results. Aditi Mahajan from Jalandhar, who got her coaching from Chandigarh, got All-India Rank 291
- Shaurya Malhotra secured the 553rd All-India Rank in NEET. Interestingly, Malhotra is also into acting and dancing and has performed several theatre plays. He is also a dancer and wants to become a surgeon
What followed was anxiety calls to teachers, friends and institute tutors. Also, various theories started surfacing with several saying that students would be able to see their results late night while others said that they could know their ranks tomorrow only. Some also said that some of the students could see their results, but nothing remained concrete.
Several students also took to Twitter and other social networking sites to vent out their anger. Students said it was like a torture for them. “The pressure is so much when the results are to be declared but this technical glitch added to the worries of students, which is not acceptable at all,” said a student.
MBBS aspirant Aarohi said herself and her mother were sitting in front of the laptop and their worries had mounted. The exam was delayed and it was said that the results would be declared this morning but even that did not happen and now continuously monitoring the site was troublesome and annoying, Aarohi said.
Dr Dipple Malhotra, mother of another student Shaurya Malhotra, also shared that the family members were engrossed in this activity of looking at the laptop the entire day. “We have already spent more than five hours keeping an eye on the website, but nothing has happened yet,’ she said.
