CBSE to conduct NET exam in July: UGC

Ending the uncertainty over the National Eligibility Test (NET), the University Grants Commission has decided that the CBSE will conduct the exam in July. An official notification in this regard is likely to be released soon. The NET is held twice a year - July and December - for the grant of junior research fellowship and eligibility for assistant professorship in universities and colleges. The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) had last year approached the HRD ministry expressing its inability to conduct the exam due to capacity crunch as it was overburdened with other tests such as the JEE-MAIN and NEET for under- graduate engineering and medical courses. The ministry has not issued any guidelines in this regard and the CBSE, too, has not yet issued a notification for the exam scheduled in July. The notification is usually out by the first week of April every year.
