Supreme Court relief National Eligibility Test (NET) persons:
In a relief to thousands of aspiring taking the national eligibility test (NET), the UGC has withdrawn its decision to increase crop marks to clear the National Eligibility Test (NET), following a Supreme Court order on Friday. The University Grants Commission (UGC) has increased the eligibility score by 15% without notice.
The national office of the UGC educational testing National Eligibility Test(NET) performs to determine eligibility for the chair and award of junior research fellowship to ensure minimum standards for beginners in the teaching profession and research. The National Eligibility Test (NET) was held in June and December of each year.
The University Grants Commission (UGC), however, made several changes to the test in June 2012, including increased crop marks. Candidates learn about changes only when the UGC announced a day after announcing the results of the review on 18 September. According to the initial notification, the candidates belonging to the sectors of SC / ST need 35, 35, and 60 marks, respectively, to qualify papers 01,02 and 03. The brands that are obtainable by OBCs were like 35, 35, and 68 and for those belonging to the general category candidates was 40, 40, and 75. But when the results were announced, candidates who would have been eligible under the initial criteria did not qualify.
According to the new criteria, the percentage of marks scored candidates belonging to different categories has increased by 15%.These students did several file an affidavit before the SC against change regarding UGC norms. On Friday, the SC issued an order saying that the University Grants Commission’s (UGC) decision was invalid because it did not follow the policy review, to announce changes in the cutoff and that, too, in such a short period of time. An official of the University of Pune that conducts National Eligibility Test (NET) examination, said: “The SC decision is valid for all persons who sat the June 2012 exams. Old cutoffs will be considered and new results will be announced “.
