The National Testing Agency on Friday had announced fresh dates for the UGC NET June (2024 Cycle), thereby postponing it from August  21 to September 4, while the the Joint CSIR UGC NET will take place from July 25 to 27.

However, to the surprise of many candidates, UGC NET  exam, slated for June 18, was abruptly canceled on June 19.

The June session exam, originally scheduled for June 18 across 317 cities in two intervals, saw participation from over 9 lakh candidates.

The day after the exam were concluded, the Ministry of Education canceled it, citing concerns that the 'sanctity' of the examination may have been compromised due to an alleged leak reported by the Indian Cyber Crime Coordination Centre (I4C) under the Ministry of Home Affairs. "Government is committed to ensure the sanctity of examinations and protect the interest of students,"the Ministry said in its X post.

These adjustments in examination dates aim to accommodate candidates affected by recent disruptions and ensure the smooth conduct of these crucial entrance tests across India.
