New Delhi, September 14
The Ministry of Education’s testing company on Monday postponed the National Eligibility Test (NET) after its dates have been clashing with Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR) examination.
The NET was scheduled to be performed from September 16 to September 25. It will now be performed September 24 onwards.
“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,” mentioned Sadhana Parashar, Senior Director, NTA.
“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 examination together with varied different exams needed to be postponed as a result of COVID-19 pandemic and the resultant lockdown. The new schedule for varied exams was launched by the NTA within the final week of August. — PTI
