University of Mysore: First to conduct online test for Ph.D seekers

Mysuru, Karnataka: Hundred year old Mysuru university became the first university in the state by conducting the eligibility tests for students who want to enroll themselves for doctorate degrees in the departments of this university.

Disclosing this at a press meet, UOM VC K S Rangappa on Wednesday said software giant TCS has not only provided the software for conducting eligibility tests in various subjects, it also monitors and ensures that tests are conducted in a transparent way without allowing candidates to indulge in any kind of malpractice.

 

"Any small deviation from the procedures prescribed for taking this on line test will not allow the candidate to answer the questions" he claimed , adding that this year the test was conducted at 37 locations all over India.

According to the Times of India, more than 3500 candidates who want to enroll themselves for doctorate degrees took the test and soon results of the test will be made available for the candidates.

VC said in addition to helping the candidates by making them to appear for on line test it also ensures the meritorious students to pass the test enabling them to enroll for PhD degrees in various departments and subjects.

"With no scope for malpractices or nepotism definitely merit matters" he pointed out.

Rangappa said this is only an eligibility test and this certificate is valid for three years and if the candidate fails to enroll himself for a Ph.D degree with in three years, he or she has to undergo another text which is valid for another three years.

"We have fixed three year validity period for this test unlike the KSAT which has a life time validity because the students interested to enroll for Ph.D will have to keep updated his or her subject knowledge where as students becoming lectures in colleges are forced to study subjects daily before going for classes" he analyzed and said UOM wants to add more number of locations for this on line Ph D test.

Rangappa reiterated that there is no scope for candidate indulging in malpractices and TC software is perfectly planned and evolved to eliminate all malpractices or misuse of the on line facility to further the candidates interests.
