New Delhi/IBNS: The National Testing Agency (NTA) Friday announced that the University Grants Commission National Eligibility Test (UGC NET) will be held between August 21 and September 4, 2024.

The exam will be conducted in a computer-based test (CBT) mode this year, a shift from the earlier pen-and-paper format.

The UGC NET exam will  The CSIR NET exam, on the other hand, is scheduled for July 25-27, 2024.

Both these exams are crucial for candidates seeking lectureships and research fellowships in Indian universities and research institutions.

Meanwhile, the National Testing Agency has also confirmed that the All India Ayush Post Graduate Entrance Test (AIAPGET) 2024 will proceed as planned on July 6.

A day after it was held, the Ministry of Education cancelled the UGC-NET exam, conducted by the National Testing Agency.

Over 9 lakh candidates appeared for the exam, which is held for Assistant Professor recruitments in universities and colleges as well as to determine eligibility for junior research fellowships.

Days later, the joint CSIR-UGC-NET examination was also postponed amid the huge paper leak row.

For the past few days, student organisations have been staging protests over alleged irregularities in the NEET-UG and the cancellation of UGC-NET exams. The Union Education Ministry responded, stating that the reported malpractices were limited in scope and isolated incidents.

They emphasised that it would be unfair to penalise the careers of the many candidates who legitimately passed these exams.
