Why UGC NET Examination For December 2020 And June 2021 Cycles?

UGC-NET is conducted twice every year. However, due to the postponement of December 2020 UGC-NET in view of COVID-19, the schedule of June 2021 UGC-NET was delayed. In order to regularize the UGC-NET examination cycles, the National Testing Agency (NTA), with the concurrence of UGC, has merged both UGC-NET of December 2020 and June 2021 cycles so that they be conducted together in CBT mode.
