UGC NET is held twice a year, with the exception of last year, when the exams scheduled for September 2020 were postponed and held in November 2020, and the December period exams were postponed and transferred to May 2021. Candidates should take mock tests for UGC NET using a newly launched mobile app called “National Test Abhyas,” as practise centres will be closed due to the current pandemic situation.
