New Delhi: The site for online registration for the University Grants Commission’s (UGC's) National Eligibility Test (NET) aspirants at www.ugcnetonline.in is up and running as IBNLive checked out on the morning of May 3. This is the first time that UGC has started accepting applications online.
Candidates attempting to enroll themselves on the site had experienced problems on May 2 which a UGC spokesperson attributed to unprecedented heavy traffic. The site, even though working on May 3, was very slow but worked through the first three steps.
The deadline for submitting online application is till midnight, May 4. Candidates who are applying by submitting hard copies of forms and documents can apply till May 10. The format of the examination has also changed this year. The test will only include objective questions and the system of negative marking has been done away with.
