Grievances Related To Answer Keys Of UGC NET Examinations Held In June, 2012 And December, 2012
After the declaration of result of UGC-NET Examinations held in June, 2012 and December, 2012, some candidates missing their JRF and eligibility for Lectureship with a narrow margin had expressed their grievances with regard to a few answer key(s) in their subject and requested the UGC to re-examine these answer keys.
All are aware that from UGC-NET held in June, 2012 onwards, the UGC has started uploading the answer keys of all the papers on its website in order to bring transparency in the system. Thereafter, the online feedback is invited from the candidates regarding the questions and the keys. On receipt of the feedback, the meetings of subject experts are arranged for re-examination of the questions and the keys. After going through the feedback, the subject experts revise the keys wherever required. Based on the final updated keys, the UGC declares the result.
It is evident that the UGC takes all precautionary measures in the interest of candidates before declaration of result as stated above to ensure that candidates may not suffer due to incorrect answer keys. However, in case any students still have some grievance(s) regarding answer-keys of UGC-NET June, 2012 and December, 2012, it has been decided by the UGC to further re-examine such cases in the interest of student. In case, any answer key(s) pointed out by the candidate(s) is/are found to be incorrect, the UGC will process the result in the light of changed key(s) and qualify the additional candidates for JRF and/or eligibility for lectureship without changing the result of previously qualified candidates. Since UGC will have to bear a heavy expenditure for TA/DA/Honorarium and stay arrangement for the Subject Experts for re-examination of the answer keys, a processing fee of Rs.5,000/- (Rupees Five thousand only) per candidate is being charged for this purpose.
In view of above, all those candidates having such grievances who appeared in UGCNET Examinations held in June, 2012 and December, 2012(including those who have already represented) may send written requests to the Head, UGC NET Bureau, South Campus University of Delhi, Benito Juarez Marg, New Delhi-110021 in this regard supporting their stand with proof from standard books/literature along with a Demand Draft of Rs.5,000/- in favour of Secretary, UGC within one month from the date of issue of this notification.
