The newly formed National Testing Agency (NTA) would now conduct the national- level examinations like NET, NEET, JEE (Mains) that were organised by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE).

As per the schedule, the National Eligibility Test (NET) would be conducted in December and JEE (Mains) twice a year, in January and April. NEET would be conducted in February and May, said HRD Minister Prakash Javadekar.

CBSE UGC NET:

NET, a qualifying test for admission in higher educational institutions in the country, would be the first exam to be conducted by the newly formed body.

The NTA would also conduct National Eligibility cum Entrance Test Common Management Admission Test (CMAT) and Graduate Pharmacy Aptitude Test (GPAT), Javadekar said.
