Thousands of applicants for National Eligibility Test-Junior Research Fellowship (JRF) were left in the lurch after University Grants Commissions website link to fill up the online applications for NET-JRF crashed on 3rd May, 2012. The webpage did not open for hours. After repeated efforts, it somehow opened, but then suddenly crashed. I have been trying to log on to the website for the past two-three days, but failed to fill up the form, said Deepti Pandey, a candidate.
Another NET applicant, Mohit said, Last year also, there were some problems in filling up the online form. UGC failed to learn even after their bitter past experiences. The commission should also make arrangements for manual filling and submission of forms so that candidates are not troubled. After complaints from the applicants, UGC has relaxed its rules of mandatory online application process for NET. The candidates can now fill up the forms offline. As per the UGC officials, the registration process was slowed down after there was an unprecedented increase in the number of candidates willing to apply during the last days of filling online forms. To overcome the problem and keeping in view the paucity of time, UGC decided to accept the offline forms till May 10. The deadline for the online registration was initially April 30 and was first extended to May 2, and then subsequently to May 4. Seeing the seriousness of the situation, the dates are further extended till May 10. Candidates sending hard copies of filled up application forms should attach the original fee receipt and attested copies of category certificates. UGC in 2010 has introduced the online system of filling up the application forms to ease out the process, as the online method automatically generates the centre and subject-wise roll numbers of the aspirants. However, this year UGC-NET exam will be held on a new pattern. All three papers will be objective. The first paper will contain 60 questions out of which 50 questions are to be attempted. The second paper will have 50 questions and all will be compulsory. The third paper will have 75 questions, and all will be compulsory. Till last year, the third paper was subjective in nature. The syllabus will remain the same. Also, there will be no negative marking.
