As of now the dates of the CBSE UGC NET and IBPS RRB Mains Exam 2017 are tentative in nature, so students who have applied for both the exams have demanded from the individual authorities to consider their request and change the exam dates of either one or both of them. It is already a tough fight for those who have applied for the CBSE UGC NET 2017 exam as previously the test was supposed to be held in the month of July but due to the CBSE’s decision of holding the UGC NET 2017 exam as an annual event against the bi-annual event had to be postponed.

The conducting authority of the UGC NET 2017 examination is Central Board of Secondary Examination i.e. CBSE while for the RRB Mains is ‘Institute of Banking Personnel’ i.e. IBPS, different from each other. So, even if one authority considers this appeal from the distressed students who aim to take both the CBSE UGC NET as well as the IBPS RRB Mains Exam 2017, the purpose is sorted. Let us see where fate takes them! Till then hope and pray for the best to happen.
