The Combined Research Entrance Test (CRET), conducted by Allahabad University, will have eight new subjects from this year. The dates for CRET are yet to be announced but the Academic Council has approved the decision. AU has, however, scrapped agriculture zoology from the list of subjects for CRET. Candidates have to qualify CRET to take admission in AU's D. Phil programme. This year, CRET will have 47 subjects instead of 40.
AU Admission Cell director Prof. B. N. Singh said he had received the minutes of the last meeting of the Academic Council in this regard. A missive has been sent to the head and in charge of the departments of these eight subjects seeking details of the CRET syllabus for the question papers. The new subjects included in CRET are sociology, home science, atmospheric and ocean studies, globalisation and development studies, material science, cognitive science besides one subject each of the Rajiv Gandhi Chair and Govind Ballabh Pant Social Science Institute.
AU has scrapped agriculture zoology following lack of any takers. Prof. B. N. Singh said information regarding department-wise vacancies in each subject has been sought from the Registrar but he has not replied yet. CRET is likely to be held after the syllabus of all new eight subjects is received by the admission cell. CRET applications were to be invited from May 1st and the entrance test was to be conducted in June, 2012. But owing to non-receipt of department-wise vacancies, it could not be held as scheduled.
