New Delhi, April 26: University Grant Commission or UGC has ended up the confusion regarding the suspension of CBSE UGC NET June 2017 session. Nearly 5 lakh candidates will be glad to know that UGC has convinced CBSE to conduct UGC NET 2017 July session. Now, Central Board of Secondary Education will soon publish the official notification for CBSE UGC NET Exam 2017. It is the first time in all 33 years, UGC NET was uncertain as CBSE had emailed to HRD expressing its inability to organise this year.
Now, it has been decided that CBSE NET June 2017 will be conducted. It is the eligibility exam for recruitment of candidates as teachers in various colleges and universities of the country. This decision was made after the student protest outside UGC office for two days regarding confusion over UGC NET. UGC has convinced CBSE to hold the NET Exam 2017, which is held twice the year.
“NET will happen in time – at max a week here and there. We have sorted out the issue with CBSE over the NET exam,” V.S. Chauhan, officiating chairman of the UGC said on the sideline of an education event in New Delhi. Chauhan also said CBSE, UGC and HRD ministry held the meeting over the issue and it was taken into consideration that previous government had issued an executive order entrusting the CBSE to conduct NET exam. The results also help the UGC in grating junior research fellowships.
Since few months, CBSE was communicating that due to capacity crunch, it won’t be able to handle a lot of entrance exams. In fact, Budget 2017-18 had a proposal to set up a National Testing Agency to conduct all academic entrance examinations. In the absence of any national testing body, CBSE conducts major higher education related entrances apart from school leaving exams at Class 10 and Class 12 level for CBSE affiliated schools.
