The National Testing Agency (NTA) has released the Uttar Pradesh Combined Entrance Test (UPCET) 2021 dates on the official website upcet.nta.nic.in. As per the official notice, the test is going to be conducted on September 05 and 06, 2021. Examinations like M.Sc., M. Tech, MCA and MBA are scheduled to take place on September 05, 2021, while the remaining first year and second year (lateral entry) examinations are going to be held on September 06, 2021.
However, the agency has not yet announced any official date of releasing the admit cards. Based on the previous year trends, it can be said that this year, the UPCET admit card is expected to be available by the end of August 2021. Last year, the test was conducted on September 20, 2020, and the admit cards were released on September 10, 2020. The difference between both dates is 10 days. Similarly, in 2019, the examination was held on April 21, 2019, and the admit cards were available on April 15, 2019, i.e. 07 days prior to the examination.
|Years||Examination Date||Admit Card release date||Difference|
|2020||September 20, 2020||September 10, 2020||10 days|
|2019||April 21, 2019||April 15, 2019||07 days|
|2018||April 29, 2018||April 20, 2018||09 days|
|2017||April 16, 22 and 23, 2017||April 11, 2017||05 days|
|2016||April 17, 23 and 24, 2016||April 08, 2016||09 days|
The UPSEE examination for 2018 was conducted on April 29, and the admit cards were released on April 20, 2018. The difference between both the dates is 09 days. Likewise, in 2017, the test was held on April 16, 22 and 23, and the admit cards were made available to download on April 11, 2017, i.e. 05 days before the examination. Lastly, in 2016, the UPSEE test was conducted on April 17, 23 and 24 and the admit cards were made available on April 08, 2016. Hence, the difference between both dates is 09 days.
Taking cues from these trends, it can be said that the UPCET 2021 admit cards are likely to be released at least 05 to 10 days prior to the first examination date. Hence, NTA is expected to release the admit cards between August 26, 2021, to August 31, 2021. Once released, the admit cards will be available on upcet.nta.nic.in.
