The National Testing Agency (NTA) has decided to merge the UGC- NET exams in December 2020 and June 2021 in order to regularize the UGC-NET examination cycles. In a recent notification, NTA has said that both the examinations will be conducted together in CBT mode. The notification also said that the decision comes with the concurrence of the University Grants Commission.
The application process for new applications has been reopened, therefore. “The candidates who have been registered for UGC- NET of December 2020 cycle but have not been able to complete the application process can also complete and submit the application form online,” the notification said. The candidates who have already applied for UGC- NET of December 2020 need not apply again.
The Application will be available on the website https://ugcnet.nta.nic.in and www.nta.ac.in from 10 August 2021 to 5 September 2021. Examinations will be held between October 6 to October 11, 2021.
It needs to mention that the UGC-NET December 2020 cycle was postponed due to the Covid-19 spike and therefore the June 2021 cycle was also delayed.
