Taking to Twitter, Kumar wrote, “For the merged cycles of December 2021 and June 2022, NTA will conduct the next UGC-NET in the first/second week of June. The exact schedule will be announced once NTA finalizes the dates.” Once the dates are finalized, the complete schedule for the NET exam will be released on UGC’s official website.

UGC has released a notice regarding the awarding of degrees after the result declaration. They have directed all Higher Education Institutions to award degrees to students within 180 days of result declaration. The rule applies to all Colleges and Universities that come under the ambit of HEIs, as per the notification.
The notice read, “Needless to say, getting a degree in time after successfully completing a program is a student’s inviolable privilege. The Commission notified full-fledged regulation entitled UGC (Grant of Degrees and Other Awards by Universities) Regulations, 2008, the regulation 4.4 of which mandates that. The Degree award date/s shall be within 180 days of the date/s by which the students will qualify and become eligible for them.”
NTA has taken this step as many students complained about the delay in getting their degree certificates. This has caused problems while pursuing higher education or seeking employment opportunities.
