They will have to take part in an online admission test. UGC has especial plan to turn that into reality. In this post we are going to focus on that.
Owing to corona virus pandemic, examination on regular basis is not possible this year. The authority is planning to launch software in order to implement the plan. For your convenience we would share the software among you so that you can easily download and use the software.
