J&K Candidates Rejoice! NTA to Reopen JEE Main, UGC NET, IIFT MBA Registration, Check here for Latest Important Dates

NTA to Re-Open JEE Main 2020 and UGC NET 2019 Registration

The National Testing Agency (NTA) has published an official notification announcing that it will re-open application form for UGC NET Dec 2019, CSIR NET Dec 2019, JEE Main 2020, IIFT 2020 for students of Jammu and Kashmir.

The decision came after the formal request made by the Secretary to Government, Higher Education Department, Srinagar & Jammu for the extension of the last date for submission of online application form of UGC-NET December 2019.

Application forms will now be available once again for all the four exams from November 4 to 8, 2019. In the five days windows, only candidates from Jammu and Kashmir will be able to apply. It may be noted that today, the state of Jammu and Kashmir transitioned to union territories of Jammu and Kashmir, and Ladakh.

Registration, application form filling, fee payment, and form submission – all four steps need to be completed within these dates only. The link will be reopened for all the examinations scheduled to be held in December-January and whose registration has been otherwise closed.

The details now stand as follows:

Name of Exam Applications Re-open Date Date of Exam Official Website
UGC-National Eligibility Test December – 2019 November 04 to 08, 2019 December 02 to 06, 2019 ugcnet.nta.nic.in
Joint CSIR-UGC NET Examination December – 2019 November 04 to 08, 2019 December 15, 2019 csirnet.nta.nic.in
Joint Entrance Examination (Main) January – 2020 November 04 to 08, 2019 January 06 to 11, 2019 jeemain.nic.in
Indian Institute of Foreign Trade (IIFT) MBA Admission Test-2020 November 04 to 08, 2019 December 01, 2019 iift.nta.nic.in

However, it is pertinent to note that the date on which admit cards for UGC NET and CSIR NET exams are supposed to release are November 9, 2019, just one day after the new last date to apply for J&K candidates. In such a situation, an important question arises on whether it will be feasible for NTA to issue admit cards in such a rushed schedule.

Highlights:

  1. NTA has issued an official notification stating the re-opening of the application window for candidates belongs to Jammu & Kashmir region.
  2. The registration links for JEE Main 2020, UGC NET 2019, CSIR NET 2019 and IIFT MBA 2020 will be re-opened from November 04, 2019 & will conclude on November 08, 2019.
  1. The decision came after the formal request made by the Secretary to Government, Higher Education Department, Srinagar & Jammu for the extension of the last date for submission of online application form of UGC-NET December 2019.
