Ph.D entrance time-table is declare

The much-delayed process for paper-II of the Ph.D entrance test at the University of Pune (UoP) has finally gained momentum with several on-campus post-graduate (PG) departments declaring their schedule for the paper. In fact, the paper-II for six PG departments will be held on 15th Wednesday at the respective departments, while others will follow suit between February 18th and 29th. The online paper-I for the two-stage Ph.D entrance system was conducted on December 17th, 2011 while the paper-II, in conventional pen and paper mode, was to be conducted by the respective PG departments.

Ph.D entrance time table is declare

However, barring some departments like the department of chemistry, which has already conducted and declared the results of paper-II, none of the other departments had released their paper-II schedule. The UoP administration drew criticism for the delay of almost two months. It may be noted that the University Grants Commission (UGC) revised the Ph.D enrolment norms in 2009, making the entrance test a mandatory requirement for all universities. The varsities were given freedom to devise their own models of Ph.D entrance tests. As such, the UoP opted for the two-stage entrance exam featuring paper-I, focused on testing the candidate’s research aptitude, and paper-II, which tests skills relating to language, numerical ability and logical reasoning.

Only those who clear paper-I, are allowed to proceed to paper-II and the subsequent interview for final selection. Director of UoPs board of college and university development (BCUD) W N Gade told TOI, We had asked all the PG departments to tentatively conduct their paper-II by January 31 and the ensuing interviews by February 28th. However, some of the departments insisted that they needed to change the syllabus for their paper-II and this involved a process of the modified syllabus going through the respective boards of studies and faculty for clearance. This took some time, leading to delay in declaration of paper-II schedule, said Gade. The entrance process is now backing on track and we are hopeful about completing the entire admission process at an earliest possible time, he added. Details of the Ph.D entrance paper-II have been posted on the university’s official website:
