CBSE UGC NET 2019 NEWS
NATIONAL LEVEL ONLINE TEST
New University Grants Commission regulations make it impossible to pursue PhD for students who fail to qualify National Eligibility Test (NET), State Eligibility Test (SET) or State Level Eligibility Test (SLET) in most of the universities. According to the new draft regulations by UGC NET, institutions which come under –
“Category III”, can enroll only those candidates who have qualified the National Eligibility Test (NET) or SLET or States Eligibility Test (SET) examinations for their PhD courses
NET is an examination to determine UGC NET Eligibility for college and university level lectureship and for award of Junior Research Fellowship (JRF) while SET is a state-level test accredited by UGC for eligibility of assistant professors. The UGC has sought feedback from all stakeholders to the proposed regulations by end of this month. Linking autonomy with ranking, norms on hiring foreign faculty and opening new campuses are among the key regulations highlighted in the draft.
Earlier, candidates who have completed masters’ degree or M. Phil in the relevant discipline can directly apply for admission to PhD programs or appear for entrance test conducted by the concerned university. In certain cases, candidates who have qualified NET/SLET were exempted from taking the examination and were directly admitted in the PhD program.
However, after the new mandate issued by UGC, candidates who have qualified NET/SET are only eligible to appear for the exam in institutions classified in category III as per UGC guidelines. Check UGC NET Qualifying Marks
Both NET and SLET are entrance tests meant to obtain for Assistant Professor and Junior Research Fellowship. NET is conducted separately by CBSE and CSIR (Council of Scientific & Industrial Research) for different academic disciplines.
