New Delhi: Technical glitches had marred the UGC National Eligibility Test (UGC NET) that was held on 9 July at various centres across the country. The National Testing Agency, meanwhile, announced that the candidates who couldn’t attend the test due to this will be given another chance next month.
The first shift exam in 7 centres in the country, including the National Institute of Technology in Kozhikode, was interrupted due to server issues. Meanwhile, the authorities said that the second shift was smoothly conducted in the afternoon.
The second phase of the UGC NET exam has been scheduled from August 12 to 14. The re-exam for those who faced problems at the 7 exam centres in the first phase too would be held alongside this.
The NTA officials informed that the renewed admit card would be published soon.
The candidates faced difficulties due to technical snag at KIPM College of Engineering and Technology, Gorakhpur, Prayagraj United Institute of Technology, JSS Academy of Technical Education, Greater Noida, Bihar Mungar Government Polytechnic, Muzaffarpur Government Women’s Polytechnic and Gujarat Bhavnagar Gyanmanjari Institute of Technology too.
NET is for determining the eligibility for the post of assistant professor and/or Junior Research Fellowship award in Indian universities and colleges. NTA holds the test on behalf of the University Grants Commission.
