UGC NET 2012: Application date extended to May 2

The University Grants Commission (UGC) has postponed the last date of online applications for National Eligibility Test (NET) 2012 from April 30 to May 2.

The decision to postpone the date was made because of technical errors. According to reports, the UGC website kept on crashing making it impossible for students to register online.

Students, however, do not see the extended period as a benefit as the link is still problematic.  Some have said that logging on continuously is a waste of their time and for those logging in at internet cafes, a waste of money.

This is not the first time that students sitting for NET have experiencing problems applying online. In 2011, the UGC website was down for hours and kept on crashing at regular intervals.

Students, who have prepared for the exam, are worried that they will not be able to sit for NET 2012 as the website is down.

Officials were quoted as saying that they were not aware of the site crashing but claimed that it could be because of the large number of students trying to access the site.

UGC NET 2012 is scheduled on June 24. It is an objective type exam. The last date for offline applications is May 9.
