National Testing Agency (NTA) has released the exam schedule of various exams including UGC NET 2018 wherein the exam dates of UGC NET 2018 have been revised. As per the exam schedule of NTA, UGC NET will now be held from December 9 to 23, whereas earlier the exam was slated to be conducted from December 2 to 16.

Apart from changing the exam dates of UGC NET 2018 December session, NTA has also declared the dates related to admit card and result of UGC NET. According to the dates released, UGC NET 2018 admit card for December session will be released from November 19, in online mode. Candidates can download the admit card till December 23, which is the last date for the exam. NAT will announce the result of UGC NET 2018 on January 10, 2019.


Earlier, NTA had announced the exam dates and registration dates for UGC NET December session, however, the admit card and result dates were not announced.

Though the exam authority has revised the result and admit card dates, the registration dates for UGC NET 2018 remain the same. Aspiring candidates can fill the application form of UGC NET 2018 for December session from September 1 to 30, 2018, in online mode.


This is for the first time that the examination will be held online, as till July 2018, UGC NET would be held in offline mode. Though the mode of the examination has changed, the exam pattern for UGC NET would remain the same, as per a notification released earlier by NTA. 

UGC NET is conducted twice a year for determining the eligibility of candidates as Assistant Professors and to award Junior Research Fellowship (JRF). UGC NET is held for two papers - Paper I and II. Both the papers are compulsory for all candidates to take. Based on their performance in both the papers, candidates will be considered qualified in UGC NET. Candidates who opt for appearing exclusively for Assistant Professor are not considered for JRF.
