NTA UGC NET Notification 2022
The UGC NET Notification 2022 was released on April 30, 2022. The form filling process was started on the same day and was scheduled to end on 20th May 2022. However, a further notification notified the extension of the last date.

Reminiscent of last year this year as well the December 2021 and June 2022 cycles will be merged. And although the information regarding the official dates is still pending from UGC’s side, the exam will likely take place during the first/second week of June 2022.
While I’ve briefed you with the basic information, now take a careful look at the Detailed Notification of UGC NET 2022, to learn more about the exam aspects.
Now, Remember, such notifications, like the one in the 3rd paragraph, are extremely detailed and are usually 70-80 pages long. Therefore, in this blog and my other UGC NET blogs, I have simplified all the information given in such notifications and conveyed the same in a clear and concise manner.
In continuation to the detailed notification, link mentioned above, a UGC NET Public Notice came out stating the information on the exam dates, syllabus, Application fee, etc.
You should note that following the closing of the registration process on 30th May 2022, the form correction window will open. The information regarding its duration, I.e., when the correction window will open and close, is yet to be notified by UGC.

The exam is a compilation of December 2021 and June 2022 cycles, I.e., UGC NET 2022 will be known as the December 2021 and June 2022 merged cycle.
About the exam dates. Up until now, there is no concrete information about when the exam will take place but as per conjectures, it will be scheduled during the first/second week of June 2022.
While you can apply your unique approach in the preparation process of the UGC NET exam, the application form procedure does not offer such liberty.
One needs to carefully take account of all the detailed instructions before going forward with the UGC NET Apply online process.
It is not for me to tell how crucial is the Apply Online process. Your hard work, efforts, your future, all can be in jeopardy, if you fail to comply with the instructions. Believe me, I’ve seen candidatures getting refused because of some minor mistake in the application form.
So, pay utmost attention while filling the UGC NET Application form. Keeping this in mind.
