NET 2012, a completely objective type exam this year

Published On: 27 Apr 2012

 | Last Updated On: 27 Apr 2012

The UGC (University Grants Commission) has made NET (National Eligibility Test) a completely objective type paper from this year. Applicants taking NET exam on June 24, 2012 will be writing the first objective type exam comprising of 3 papers.

Under the new paper pattern, there will be no negative marking. Besides, test takers can now carry a copy of their OMR (optical mark recognition) answer sheets with them after completing the exam.

NET is conducted by the National Educational Testing Bureau of UGC to verify eligibility for lectureship and grant JRF (Junior Research Fellowship) to Indian nationals in order to ensure the eligibility standards of the candidates taking up research and teaching profession. Till now NET followed a subjective exam pattern where candidates were required to give detailed answers.

The commission has now decided to conduct NET as an objective type exam. There will be 3 objective type papers conducted on the same day in 2 different sessions. The syllabus will remain same for all three papers as previous year.

Meanwhile, a sudden change in pattern has confused many aspirants. A history student from JNU expressed that he was pretty confused about the paper pattern. The first paper is based on general aptitude while the second and third are specific. The paper III was a subjective paper till December 2011. Now they will have to appear for 2 multiple choice type papers on the subject and the UGC declares that syllabus for both papers is the same.
