The National Testing Agency (NTA) has rescheduled the Uttar Pradesh Combined Entrance Test (UPCET) 2021 formally known as UP State Entrance Examination (UPSEE). As per the notification released on the official site, the entrance test which was scheduled to be held on May 16 will now be held on June 15, 2021.
NTA has also extended the last date for registration till May 10, 2021. Earlier the last date to apply was April 30, 2021. Candidates can register themselves on the official website –upcet.nta.nic.in.
The official statement released by NTA reads, “It has been brought to our notice that the date of the UPCET 2021 exam clashes with the certain papers of Class XII exams of CBSE as well as Intermediate level exam of UP Board and hence those who are appearing in those exams are unable to apply for UPCET 2021. With a view to enable such students to apply for UPCET 2021 and to ensure larger participation of candidates, UPCET 2021 is rescheduled.”
UPCET 2021 is being held for admission to the professional courses offered by the Government, Government-aided institutions and private-unaided institutions affiliated to Dr APJ Abdul Kalam Technical University (AKTU), Madan Mohan Malaviya University of Technology (MMMUT) and some other state universities of Uttar Pradesh for the academic session 2021-22.
