The National Testing Agency (NTA) has rescheduled the exam date for the Uttar Pradesh Combined Entrance Test (UPCET) 2021 for admission to various undergraduate and postgraduate courses in the state. The entrance exam was earlier due to being held on May 18. As per the revised schedule, UPCET 2021 will now be held on June 15.
In a notice, NTA said the decision has been taken as “UPCET 2021 exam clashes with the certain papers of Class XII exams of CBSE as well as Intermediate level exam of UP Board and hence those who are appearing in those exams are unable to apply for UPCET 2021”.
The application deadline, previously set as April 30, has been extended till May 10 to ensure larger participation of candidates, NTA further said.
Candidates can apply for UPCET 2021 at the website upcet.nta.nic.in till April 30 (upto 05.00 PM). An application fee of Rs 1,300 is payable for Male/third gender/General/OBC/GEN-EWS candidates and Rs 650 for Female/SC/ST/PwD candidates.
