The University Grants Commission-National Eligibility Test is a national-level examination that is conducted by the National Testing Agency twice a year in order to determine the eligibility for the award of Junior Research Fellowship (JRF) for Indian citizens and lectureship. The UGC-NET will be conducted in December 2021 and June 2022. Last year, due to COVID-19, the agency was not able to conduct the examination for the December 2021 batch. Therefore, the NTA decided to merge the examinations for the batches of December 2021 and June 2022.
