The National Testing Agency (NTA) has once again rescheduled the dates for the University Grants Commission (UGC)-NET December 2020 and June 2021 cycles to be held in October. The UGC NET 2021 was scheduled to be conducted from October 17 to 25.
However, in a fresh notice, the Agency said it has decided to postpone the UGC NET exams following such requests as the dates clashed with some other major examinations.
“Several requests have been received from candidates regarding the clash with some other major examinations. Hence NTA has decided to postpone the UGCNET December 2020 and June 2021 cycles to subsequent dates which will be announced shortly,” NTA said. Candidates can check the notice at the official website nta.ac.in.
