These exams include IGNOU PhD and OPEN MAT entrance exam 2020, ICAR entrance test, JNU entrance exam, UGC NET, and CSIR-UGC NET June 2020.

Applicants must note that the online applications will be accepted till 5 pm, so they need to make sure to visit nta.ac.in and submit the application on-time. Candidates have enough time to think for the registration process and apply for these.

The reason to further push the deadline to apply for these exams is the hardships faced by applicants in filling the application forms on time, due to the Coronavirus outbreak. And this causes a lot of issues including poor internet connectivity, closed cybercafé, and much more.
