UGC NET 2021 – Why Was the Application Portal Reopened?
The postponement of the UGC-NET December 2020 exam due to COVID-19 delayed the schedule of the UGC NET June 2021 exam. So, to regularize the UGC-NET examination cycle, NTA with the concurrence of UGC, decided to merge both December 2020 and June 2021 UGC-NET cycles and conduct them together in CBT mode.
This was the main reason for reopening the application portal, thereby providing the new applicants the chance of filling in and submitting their forms.
