National Testing Agency (NTA) is expected to release the CSIR NET 2021 admit cards today, January 20, 2022. All those who registered for the fellowship eligibility test can download their admit cards from the official website csirnet.nta.nic.in. The Council of Scientific and Industrial Research National Eligibility Test (CSIR NET) June 202 session is all set to be conducted from January 29, 2022, through the computer-based format. So, while reporting to the exam center, it is mandatory for each candidate to carry a hard copy of the admit card.
CSIR NET June 2021: Today Might be the Day
Although there is no confirmation from the NTA regarding the release of the CSIR NET 2021 admit card, the past-year trends support this speculation. Based on these trends, admit cards release at least 9-36 days prior to the eligibility test. The gap of 36 days is no longer a possibility. But a 09-day gap is still a possibility indicating that admit cards will most likely release today.
To understand the assumption of 9 days gap between exam date and admit card release, here’s a table summarising the past-year records:
|Year||Admit Card Release Date||Exam Start Date||Difference|
|2021||January 20, 2022 (expected)||January 21 and February 15, 16, and 17, 2022||09 days|
|2020||November 07, 2020||November 19, 2020||12 days|
|2019||November 09, 2019||December 15, 2019||36 days|
|2018||December 05, 2018||December 16, 2018||11 days|
|2017||December 08, 2017||December 17, 2017||09 days|
Reports claiming admit cards to release on Jan 17
One cannot deny the uncertainty surrounding the CSIR NET 2022 admit cards. In fact, several news reports claimed that the hall tickets for all registered candidates shall be issued on January 17, 2022. That clearly didn’t happen but the reports paved the way for endless speculations. On a positive note, one thing is certain – the CSIR NET June 2021 admit card will be issued through the online mode, on the official portal csirnet.nta.nic.in.
Candidates will be expected to download and print a copy of their CSIR NET June 2021 admit cards before their exam session. Moreover, this document needs to be carried on the day of the eligibility test as proof of candidature. Since an e-copy will most likely not be accepted, a hard copy of the document is definitely a must.
