UGC NET EXAM Only Once A Year

Till 2017, UGC was conducting NET exam twice a year, first in July and second in December. Now, as per new notification of 2018, this exam will be held only once a year. Actually, data analysis of last few years disclosed the fact a large number of candidates were not appearing in exam after filling the form. According to data revealed by authorities, 6.5 Lakh aspirants register for the exam every year, out of which only 1.5 Lakh actually appear for the exam. This situation results in wastage of resources. If exam will be held only once, serious candidates will NET form.
