UGC NET Syllabus to be revised for the first time in 10 years

The Central Board of Secondary Education shortly known as CBSE conducts the University Grants Commission National Eligibility Test (UGC-NET) for candidates aspiring for a teaching job in various universities and colleges in India.

As per as a report, the syllabus of UGC NET will be revised for the first time in a decade. According to sources, the officials of University Grants Commission (UGC) said that the curriculum of the NET exam which is a nationwide exam for candidates eyeing teaching jobs in universities and colleges in the country will be revised for the first time in 10 years.

The University Grants Commission, which is the apex education regulator in India, has set up a committee to revise the syllabus of each of the subjects to reflect changes in what is being taught in higher education institutions across India. For now, 25 committees have been drawn for different subjects. The examination is held for a total of 90 subjects, so the officials said that more committees will be set up to cover each and every subject. According to the source, the panels include people actively engaged in teaching and research.

According to a senior UGC official, “The curriculum for UGC NET has stayed the same though most colleges have changed their syllabus over a period of time. We need to reflect those changes. A draft syllabus will be prepared by the committees and will be submitted for approval. Once it is approved, a decision will be taken on when to implement it“.

According to a Human Resource Development (HRD) ministry, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has said that it is difficult to carry out the exam twice. So there is also a plan to turn hold the exam only once every year.
