UGC National Eligibility Test may be held yearly

Quodsi everti ancillae vim qui lorem persius petentium UGC National Eligibility Test may be held yearly

NEW DELHI, APRIL 28 (ENA) The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has proposed that the National Eligibility Test (NET) may not be held twice a year but should be conducted annually. Also, the UGC has cleared the uncertainty over the NET July 2017 and has announced that CBSE will conduct the examination.
The suggestion of conducting the NET exam annually is being assessed considering the resources required for conducting the exam and the number of candidates appearing for it.
CBSE said that only 17 per cent of the registered candidates appear in the exam and only four per cent of them are able to qualify for it. Conducting the exam once a year will make the candidates take it more seriously and resources can be utilized more thoughtfully.
At present the NET exam is being held twice a year in the months of July and December for the recruitment of assistant professors in universities and colleges and grant of the junior research fellowship.
Earlier, the CBSE approached the HRD Ministry expressing its helplessness to conduct the National Eligibility Test due to capacity crunch as it was overburdened with other tests such as the JEE-MAIN and NEET for undergraduate engineering and medical courses respectively.
Though the HRD ministry has not yet issued any guiding principle regarding the matter, CBSE is still to release a notification for UGC NET to be held in July, which is usually released in the first week of April.
