UGC Planning To Change NET Exam Pattern

The University Grants Commission National Eligibility Test (UGC-NET) is most likely to see a change in its pattern from next June, Prof DN Reddy, UGC member, has said.

During the consultations, Reddy said that two anomalies were pointed out by the faculty and students in the current NET examination pattern. They are conducting the exam in objective pattern without negative marking and testing subjects in paper-II and Paper-III out of three papers. The former JNTU vice-chancellor was addressing the UGC regional consultation on review of NET examination pattern at Osmania University here on Saturday organised by the UGC’s Southern Eastern Regional Office (SERO).

The process is as part of consultations carried out across the nation by the UGC to review various pedagogic, academic, technical and administrative issues.

Explaining the impact of negative marking, Reddy, who is also the chairman of Recruitment and Assessment Centre (RAC), DRDO, said that the number of candidates clearing the NET examination has been doubled after removing the negative marking which has increased the percentage of candidates clearing the NET from 5 to 10 per cent.
