UGC Allows Use of NET Scores for PhD Admissions

The University Grants Commission (UGC) has announced that the National Eligibility Test (NET) scores can now be used for admission to PhD programs, replacing separate entrance tests conducted by universities and Higher Education Information Systems (HEIS). This move aims to simplify the admission process and align with the National Education Policy.

Streamlining Admissions Process

Starting from the academic session 2024-2025, universities can utilize NET scores for PhD admissions. The decision, made during the UGC’s 578th Meeting on March 13, 2024, follows recommendations from an expert committee. This initiative is part of the National Education Policy’s goal of reducing the burden of multiple entrance exams.

Implementation Details

The NET, conducted by the National Testing Agency (NTA), will now serve as a common entrance test for PhD admissions. Results will be declared in percentile, alongside candidates’ marks, facilitating their use for PhD admissions. Additionally, Junior Research Fellowship (JRF)-qualified candidates will undergo interviews for admission, in accordance with UGC regulations.
