UGC with the notification for inviting application announced the criteria for June as follows
The carbon copy of OMR Sheet was given to candidates and all were waiting for publishing of Answer keys. When the provisional answer keys were published in UGC website, the happiness knew no bounds..........The messages passed from cell to cell with a proud sentence " I am also
have cleared NET.
On September 18 the wind blew in reverse pace.......... Many of candidates looked through the Result PDF published by UGC. They moved their eyes from roll no. to roll no and painfully realised that their roll number is missing in the list of those who qualified. "We achieved riteria and then what happened?" The candidates could not believe it. The land phone line in the UGC office became in Jam with continous calls and they could make it engaged. UGC did not expected this type of
responses. Though they published the criteria for exams for June and December 2011 and it has been followed and no changes had been made just before or after publishing result , but before that upto December 2010 UGC published an earlier criteria but changed it and it could be known
only below the mark sheet when published. So UGC's plan was to publish the criteria of passing NET for June 2012 only with Mark sheet. But the disturbing and continuous phone call made them to publish the criteria just on the next day of Result published ie. on 19th September. It became controversial and candidates who not cleared NET because of new criteria of aggregate 65% ,60% and 55% Respectively for General,OBC NCL and SC/ST/PH approached court as they were with proof of OMR and Marksheet. In most of High courts in India candidates joined in appeal and Kerala High Court earlier ordered UGC to not to destroy answer sheets as UGC had a practice of distroying answer sheets after one month. On the last of December KHC again ordered in favour of petitioners and cancelled the after exam criteria.
In the midst of this UGC invited application for December 2012 with the same criteria but announced it is only minimum and actual winners will be selected from them. Just two or three days before Examination date ie. 30/11/2012 UGC published the criteria and steps for declaring winners (Now it is removed from site) that only 15% of those who get minimum criteria should be cleared NET in subject wise and Catogery wise. This will result nearly 6 to 7 % ogf total candidates passed and
all others are exposed to being failed
It is said that NET is an Eligibility Test and the performance in such tests should be absolute ie. the performance of one should be evaluated only on the criteria and not compared or effecting others. If the top 15% rule is applied suppose you got 80% and more people scores above
that, then you will fail
So Please reply and vote to take an opinion poll whether UGC is Right or Wrong
