University Grant Commission has released the answer key of the National Eligibility Test. It has released the answer key for the examinations held in November and December of the last year. The exams held on those dates were to be held on December 2020 and June 2021 itself. But the covid restrictions had made it difficult for the commission to organise the offline examinations. Many students were in the fray, as their fellowship for higher education was in question. On January 11, the All India OBC Students association (AIOBCSA) had written to UGC urging it to declare the NET result for December 2020 and June 2021 sessions immediately.
The answer key can be easily availed from the official website. The challenge of the answer key can be done from the 24th of January, 2022.
