UGC NET Exam Postponed In View Of COVID-19, Check Next Date Details
Bhubaneswar/New Delhi: The University Grants Commission (UGC) has postponed the National Eligibility Test (NET) after finding that its dates were clashing with Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR) exam.
The Ministry of Education’s testing agency on Monday postponed the NET and the exam has now been scheduled to be conducted from September 16 to September 25. It will now be conducted on September 24 onwards, PTI reported.
“The National Testing Agency will be conducting ICAR exams on 16, 17, 22 and 23 September. In view of that, UGC- NET 2020 Examination will now be held from September 24 onwards,” said the news agency quoted Sadhana Parashar, Senior Director, NTA, as saying.
“This is due to some common candidates in both exams and the requests received thereof. The exact schedule of subject-wise and shift-wise details will be uploaded subsequently,” she added.
The June 2020 exam along with various other exams had to be postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the resultant lockdown. The new schedule for various exams was released by the NTA in the last week of August.
