The ministry of education’s testing agency on Monday postponed the National Eligibility Test (NET) because the dates were clashing with those of Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR) exam.
The NET was scheduled to be conducted from September 16 to September 25.
The National Testing Agency (NTA) has postponed the UGC-National Eligibility Test (UGC-NET) 2020 as the dates of the examination were clashing with the Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR) exam.
This is the second time that the UGC-NET 2020 exam is being canceled.
Now, the new dates of the examination will fall after September 24.
“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.
She further added that the examination is being postponed as there are 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.
The June 2020 exam along with various other exams had to be postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the resultant lockdown.
