Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) is yet to release the official notification for UGC NET November 2017. The board was slated to release the official notice on July 24, 2017, however the board fell short on the timeline. A recent update on the official website for UGC NET to be conducted by CBSE shows the official notice release date as August 4, 2017. This is in addition to the change in exam date which was earlier shown as November 19 but later preponed to November 5.
As per the website, the online application for UGC NET 2017 will begin on August 11, 2017 and will continue till September 11, 2017. The last date to pay application fee is August 31, 2017.
The eligibility criteria to appear for UGC NET remain the same as previous years. UGC NET holds immense importance not just because it qualifies a candidate for assistant professorship but has also become a pre-requisite for enrolment to a PhD program
