The National Eligibility Test (NET) has been postponed and will now be conducted September 24 onwards.
The Ministry of Education’s testing agency on September 14, 2020 postponed the NET after its dates clashed with Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR) exam.
The NET was earlier scheduled to be held from September 16 to September 25.
“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 Sadhana Parashar, Senior Director, NTA, adding that 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.
Due to COVID pandemic and the resultant lockdown the June 2020 exam along with various other exams had to be postponed. In the last week of August the new schedule for various exams was released by the NTA.
