The result of UGC NET examination held by CBSE on 10 July and 28 July 2016 is most likely to be declared on October 14 or 15. That’s because the official notification for the next CBSE NET will be issued before October 15th and as we had discussed here in previous report, CBSE tends to declare previous NET results before the next notification outing. The board had released the answer keys
“The result of Joint UGC CSIR NET June 2016 examination has been declared today as the wait continues for CBSE NET July 2016. CSIR NET exam was held on 19 June 2016. Candidates can check the CSIR UGC NET result on csirhrdg.res.in, the official website.”
In a press note issued here last month, CBSE had notified that it will hold the next UGC NET on January 22nd, 2017 and that detailed notification will be published on www.cbsenet.nic.in by 15th October 2016. Usually, the UGC NET is conducted twice a year with first one being conducted in June and second one in December. However, CBSE is already behind the schedule since it conducted first 2016 NET exam in July instead of June, which also stretched to July 28 when it was conducted in Srinagar and now the second NET exam which was originally supposed to be held in December 2016 has been pushed back to January 2017. How will the schedule of 2017 NET exams will go, it will interesting to see.
For each CBSE UGC NET exam, around 8 lakh candidates register to earn Junior Research fellowship and eligibility for Assistant Professor. The test is conducted nationwide at more than 1000 centers which are allocated to candidates via admit cards.
For January 2017 NET exam, the application process will begin when CBSE releases the detailed advertisement (expected on 15 October) and the registrations will continue for about a month. It remains unclear as of yet either CBSE or UGC will be bestowed responsibility to hold next NET exam since CBSE had last month urged UGC to conduct the test itself, citing that holding NET is overburdening the board. However, in the letter to UGC, CBSE also expressed to extend technical support if deemed necessary.
