Usually, the NET exam is conducted twice a year, but this year the July exam was skipped because of the delay in the declaration of the previous NET exam, due to a court case. Though there has not been an official statement, many reports suggest that from now on, the NET exam will be conducted only once a year. Also, the number of NET qualifications will be restricted to 6 percent.
According to a UGC source, it is not confirmed that the NET will be an annual exam. It is still being discussed.
