UGC NET Exam to be conducted annually – HRD in Sync

UGC NET 2017


UGC NET 2017 exam may be conducted annually- HRD Minister in support to the  Proposal.

University Grants Commission (UGC) through CBSE Central Board of Secondary Education(CBSE) may be conducting  its most sought after ‘UGC-NET Exam’  national eligibility test  once a year, Human Resource Development – ‘HRD Ministry’ seems to be in  harmony to the proposal. HRD minister Prakash Javadekar indicated as much, “The attendance in UGC-NET is very low. We will make a formal announcement (of making the exam an annual affair) soon,” the minister said.

UGC-NET exam will now be held just once a year by CBSE till the time a National Testing Agency is in place. UGC had made plea to the HRD ministry to seek permission to hold the UGC-NET examination of 2017 to simply be conducted once a year instead of twice; the HRD after great analysis and thought seems to be under sense of  concurrence. this could lead to UGC NET examination being held annually.  

Earlier, CBSE told to continue to conduct UGC NET, and CTET twice a year till the proposed National Testing Agency is set up and takes over.

UGC wants NET to be conducted Once a year – certain reasons why…….

  • CBSE conducts NET in 80 subjects at one time.See List of UGC NET Subjects . Also See the Exam pattern of UGC NET

  • Inflexible number of people employed who deal with conducting this test.

  • CBSE gets only 5 months preparation time for each test through the annual system it will get more time.

  •  Main function of the CBSE  in regulation of school /college establishments seemed to suffer.

           The attendance marked in exams like UGC-NET is hardly 40% of the registered candidates

  • The annual affair to prove cost-effective

  •  The candidates did not take it seriously as they were given two opportunities in the year for the same thing.
