About a week ago, the UGC-NET exam scheduled for June 18, 2024, was cancelled due to reported irregularities by the National Testing Agency (NTA). A high-level committee has been formed to seek feedback from students and parents to reform the NTA and enhance the examination process. "There have been indications of irregularities in the examination conducted by NTA, due to which the UGC-NET 2024 held on June 18 stands cancelled. The exam will be rescheduled."
A committee headed by former ISRO Chairman Dr K Radhakrishnan has been tasked with ensuring the transparent, smooth, and fair conduct of examinations amid the ongoing NEET and UGC-NET issues. The public is invited to submit suggestions and ideas through a dedicated website until July 7.
The committee will focus on reforming the examination mechanism, enhancing data security protocols, and restructuring the NTA's functioning. It will also review the Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) and protocols of the NTA.
The committee aims to propose measures to strengthen these procedures and implement monitoring mechanisms to ensure compliance at every level.
"Earlier the ministry of education constituted a high-level committee of experts to ensure transparent, smooth and fair conduct of examinations amid the NEET and UGC-NET row."
The committee's findings and recommendations are expected to bring significant changes to how the NTA conducts its entrance examinations in the future.
