After so many failures faced by the University of Grants Commission (UGC) in conducting the National Eligibility Test (NET), the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) board bagged the opportunity to conduct NET examination from this year.
But the questions is, Will the CBSE board be able to conduct NET exam without any mistakes / failures?
Since the number of examinees would cross 65 lakhs for this exam, the CBSE will now become the largest examination conducting body in the country.
After the previous failure from UGC, HRD ministry has asked CBSE to conduct the NET exam. The decision was taken at the full commission meeting.
The NET examination is conducted two times in a year. NET exam is conducted for or determining the eligibility of Indian nationals for the post of Assistant Professor only or Junior Research Fellowship (JRF) and Eligibility for Assistant Professor both in Indian universities and colleges.
Apart from NET, every year CBSE conducts exams for class 10th and class 12th board examinations and class 10th proficiency test. It also conducts AIPMT (All India Pre-Medical Test) and JEE Main (Joint Entrance Examination) and CTET (Central Teachers Eligibility Test).
Students are hoping that CBSE will conduct the NET examination without any hiccups.
