NTA UGC NET: The National Testing Agency )(NTA) which has been conducting the National Eligibility Test (NET) since 2018, has changed the syllabus for all the subjects in both paper I and paper II. The exam which is scheduled to be conducted from June 20 to June 28 will be based on the new syllabus.
The NTA had also changed the exam pattern slightly last year when it conducted the exam online in a computer-based test (CBT). Earlier, CBSE used to conduct the NET on behalf of the University Grants Commission (UGC) in two parts — paper I and paper II but under NTA the exam is held in one go for both papers.
Last year as well the exam was conducted for three hours. However, to manage the number of candidates the exam was conducted in two shifts from 9:30 am to 1 pm and 2:30 pm to 6 pm.
