The National Eligibility Test (NET), conducted by University Grants Commission (UGC), will be completely objective type from this year. The first objective type NET exam will be conducted on June 24 and will comprise three papers. According to new exam pattern there will be no negative marking. Moreover, the candidates will be allowed to carry the carbon printout of optical mark recognition (OMR) response sheets with them after the examination.
The National Educational Testing Bureau of UGC conducts NET to determine eligibility for lectureship and for award of Junior Research Fellowship (JRF) for Indian nationals in order to ensure minimum standards for the entrants in the teaching profession and research. So far the pattern of the exam had been subjective, where aspirants had to write detailed answers. "The commission has decided to change the pattern of examination. All the three papers will be objective and will be held on the same day in two separate sessions. The syllabus, though, for all the three papers remains the same as that of the previous year," said Surender Singh, deputy secretary (NET), UGC. Meanwhile, the pattern change has confused a lot of aspirants. According to a history student from JNU, Ritika Sahu, "It's a confusing scenario right now. The first paper is on general aptitude while the second and third are specific. Till December 2011, paper III was a subject one. Now, we are appearing for the two objective type papers on the subject and the UGC claims no change in syllabus."
