SC terms new NET norms invalid, UGC withdraws

The University Grants Commission (UGC) has withdrawn
its decision to increase the cut-off marks for clearing NET (National
Eligibility Test), following Supreme Court’s decision declaring the order
invalid.  

The SC has issued an order after a petition was
filed before it, challenging the NET qualifying norms declared by UGC after the
result was announced. The SC in its judgment has said that the UGC’s decision
was invalid, as it did not follow the exam policy in announcing the changes in
cut-offs and that too in such a short period of time.

The recent judgment has come as a breather for
thousands of candidates, who appeared for NET exams in June, 2012.  The UGC increased the cut off marks by 15 per
cent for candidates to become eligible for lectureship; candidates came to know about it after
the result was announced. 

As per the earlier UGC notification, candidates
belonging to the General category had to score 40, 40, and 75 marks
respectively to qualify in papers 1, 2 and 3. While for candidates belonging to
OBC category had to score 35, 35, and 68 and for the SC/ST candidates 35, 35,
and 60 was the qualifying marks. When the result of June, 2012 exam was
announced, candidates getting above mentioned marks would have qualified, but,
immediately after the announcement of result UGC came up with  new notification increasing the passing percentage
of each category by 15 per cent.

After this, the student community approached SC and
filed an affidavit against UGC for change in norms after the examination was
conducted and result was announced.

“The SC decision is valid for all candidates who sat
for the June, 2012 examination. The old cut-offs will be considered and new
results will be announced,” informed an official of University of Pune that
conducts the NET exam, reported Times of India

  3. today i phoned 2 ugc, they said that we appealed against KHC , and final decision will come on 21 january

  4. i am obc candidate. i got 38%, 62% and 50.26% in Commerce paper 1,2 and 3. Is it posible to pass net exam?

  5. Do anybody has the answer of the following :
    1. If one has got 65% and others has got little down i.e. may be 64.5% or 64% or even 55%, the person who has got 65% will difinitely have more knowledge of intelligency the others ? Is it not possible that he has got some marks for the answers which he got just filling some circles without knowing the correct answers because of not availability of negative marks. Do u think those person should be kept higher than those who ve got all marks, it may be 64% etc., by thier pure knowledge ?

  6. Respected sir/s,
    The following comments r 4 those who says those ve got 65% or more in UGC NET Exams are only eligible candidates for teaching purpose ?
    I strongly opposed such candidates. There are many assistant professors, associate professor teaching in the Universities ve never even appeared in UGC NET exam. and those who ve got more than 65% have been taught by them. Second, many like Guru Nanak Ji, Swami Vivekanand etc. had never such certificates and degrees, do u think that u r more eligible than those?

    Ok U may be. Than why r u afraiding from those who ve got less than 65% ? U will definitely beat them in interviews and other tests which will be conducted by the Universities for teaching purpose.

    I am working in the system, hence, i know many of the teachers who cannot write even a simple joining letter ve been appointed as assistant professor just because they ve got the certificates. I know the candidates who are residents of Delhi and ve got all their education in Delhi but for NET Exam. they ve opted some selected universities other than Delhi University, why?

    When UGC got pressures, declared almost 15000 more candidates eligible for UGC NET JUNE 2012 otherwise they were declared failed earlier. when they ve not appeared any other exam after declaring failed, how they ve been declared eligible for June 2012. This magic is possible only in UGC System. u r failed but when u actually passed likewise u r passed when u actually failed, just because the magic of UGC System.

    What about those when were declared passed at 40% or 45% earlier than June 2012 ? Do u think they r more eligible than who ve got 53 or 55 or 57 percent marks in June 2012 ? What is the exact criteria, does anybody know ? Magic by UGC system.

  12. we as students feel that the decision made by UGC is cruel as it ll leave many aspirants expecting the positive results for their effort will go waste. the top 15% idea is completely shattering the dreams and importantly the lives of many and many students especially from rural background. almost the decisions by the UGC are not welcomed by large group of students and faculties. if any scheme or plans that does not benefit the young educated generation… then for whom such plans are generated and why should it be implemented ?
