Tech Guru

The ministry of education on Wednesday night ordered cancellation of UGC-NET following inputs of exam's integrity being compromised.

Around 11 lakh students will have to retake the UGC-NET examination after the Union education ministry cancelled it following concerns about its integrity. The exam's new dates will be announced soon.

What is UGC-NET?

The UGC-NET or University Grants Commission National Eligibility Test, determines the eligibility of Indian nationals for roles as assistant professors or for junior research fellowships and assistant professors in universities and colleges across India.

The awarding of JRF and/or eligibility for assistant professorship is contingent on a candidate's combined performance in paper-I and paper-II of the UGC-NET.

Candidates who qualify only for assistant professorship must adhere to the recruitment regulations of the respective universities, colleges, or state governments.

What is NTA?

The National Testing Agency (NTA), established in November 2017 under the Indian Societies Registration Act, 1860, is an autonomous body tasked with conducting various entrance examinations for admissions to higher educational institutions. NTA conducts exams such as NEET, JEE, CTET, GATE, GPAT, GMAT, CAT, and UGC-NET.

How UGC-NET is conducted?

NTA is authorised to take UGC-NET test. It is held twice a year (June & December).

Since December 2018, the UGC-NET has been conducted by NTA in Computer Based Test (CBT) mode. However, this time, in a departure from previous practice, the National Eligibility Test (NET) was conducted in pen-and-paper mode on a single day — June 18 — with a record 11 lakh students registering for the exam.

Why Centre cancelled UGC-NET

The ministry of education announced the cancellation of the UGC-NET June 2024 exam based on inputs received from the National Cyber Crime Threat Analytics Unit of the Indian Cyber Crime Coordination Centre (I4C) under the ministry of home affairs.

These inputs indicated potential compromises in the examination's integrity, it said in a statement on Wednesday.

To uphold transparency and the sanctity of the examination process, the ministry decided to cancel the exam and initiate a fresh examination cycle, the statement added.

The matter has also been referred to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) for a thorough investigation

This is becoming a joke. I feel for the poor students who must be going through a lot of stress. And how are they going to ensure that this wont happen again.
