Students, CBSE has no plans to re-conduct Class 12 Mathematics exam. Read full news hereNew Delhi: The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) is not planning to conduct the re-examination of Class 12 Mathematics paper.

 Some fake messages and circular went viral on social media, claiming that the CBSE will conduct Maths examination on May 1.

Here is the fake circular:

The fake circular claiming that the CBSE Maths exam will be conducted on May 01

Delhi’s Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia had last month wrote to Union HRD Minister Smriti Irani requesting her to “make an announcement to provide grace marks” to Class 12 CBSE students who are gripped with fear after a tough math exam.

The exam was conducted on March 14.

JNU not to give concession to OBC candidates in entrance exams

JNU not to give concession to OBC candidates in entrance examsNew Delhi: JNU will not give any relaxation to OBC candidates in entrance examination forMPhil and Phd courses from the upcoming academic session but they will be entitled to a concession of 5 marks in the eligibility criteria.

 A decision in this regard was taken at a standing committee meeting of the university last week which was attended by Deans of various schools.

At present, the university treats both OBC and General candidates at par when it comes to eligibility criteria for admissions to various courses. They need to have secured a minimum of 55 per cent marks in the qualifying examination.

The SC/ST candidates, however, are given a relaxation as they only require to pass the qualifying examination with 34 per cent marks.

However, the university offered a 10 per cent relaxation to OBC candidates at the entrance examination or interview stage.

Therefore, while candidates in the General category were required to secure 40 marks, those belonging to OBC had to secure a minimum of 36 marks.

The OBC students have been demanding a concession at both the stages since long. Last year, a candidate had also approached the court challenging denial of admission by JNU as he had stood second in the entrance exam but did not meet the eligibility criteria.

“It will be unfair to give the concession at both the stages so it has been decided that the OBC candidates will be given a relaxation in eligibility but they will have to compete with the general category students in the entrance exam or the interview,” a source said.

“If less number of OBC candidates meet the eligibility criteria then the seats that remain vacant under the category will be given to general category students,” the source added.

Month before multiple medical entrance exams, SC brings back common test

Since 2013, state governments and private colleges have conducted separate examinations for these.Just a month before separate entrance tests are to be held for government and private medical colleges, the Supreme Court on Monday revived the common entrance examination – National Eligibility Entrance Test (NEET) – putting lakhs of students in confusion.

A Constitution bench of Justices A R Dave, A K Sikri, R K Agrawal, A K Goel and R Banumathi recalled a controversial judgment delivered on July 18, 2013 which had quashed NEET. It said the “majority verdict” delivered by then Chief Justice Altamas Kabir did not consider an earlier SC judgment that was binding on the bench, nor had he consulted other members of his bench.

Justice Dave, who was part of the bench headed by Justice Kabir, had dissented strongly, complaining that he was not consulted, possibly because of paucity of time as the then CJI had delivered the verdict a day before his retirement. Justice Dave had then ruled in favour of NEET, but Justices Kabir and Vikramjit Sen quashed the test.

 Monday’s decision is seen as a shot in the arm for efforts to weed out malpractices in admissions, such as capitation fees and discretionary criteria, used by private colleges to indulge in profiteering by circumventing a merit-based selection system for allotment of MBBS, BDS and PG seats.
 Lakhs of students appear for medical entrance examinations for admission to more than 400 colleges every year to compete for more than 52,000 MBBS seats. Since 2013, state governments and private colleges have conducted separate examinations for these.
 Monday’s order leaves Medical Council of India with the onerous task of conducting the NEET at a short notice as students have already filled out forms for several entrance tests. Immediately after judgment reviving the NEET was pronounced in open court the recalling the previous order, stunned lawyers, appearing for private colleges, pleaded that the SC clarify the consequences.
 The bench replied that “natural consequence” was that NEET comes into force. It said the court would give a fresh hearing on constitutional validity of NEET but in the meantime, the exam will be restored. The lawyers then pleaded that the MCI’s notification to bring NEET back be stayed till its validity was decided afresh and said that in 2013, too, an interim stay was given. The bench, however, rejected the plea saying the interim order was only for one academic session and it could not continue. “After giving our thoughtful and due consideration, we are of the view that the judgment delivered in Christian Medical College needs reconsideration,” the bench said.

Candidates registering for MPhil or PhD before July 2009 will be exempted from NET

The UGC has decided that candidates who have registered for M Phil or PhDs prior to July 11, 2009, will be exempted from clearing NET exam to become eligible for the post of assistant professor if they fulfill certain other conditions.

The move would help thousands of PhD holders who had been affected by a UGC guideline that came in 2009 making NET and PhD a minimum eligibility criteria for applying for assistant professor in colleges and universities.

HRD minister Smriti Irani said that this decision will help in recruitments for various posts.

According to the UGC decision, candidates registered for M Phil and PhD prior to July 11, 2009 shall be exempted from the requirement of the minimum eligibility condition of NET or State Level Eligibility Tests for recruitment and appointment of Assistant Professor if they fulfil some other conditions.

Among the conditions laid down is that their PhD degrees should be awarded in regular mode only and the evaluation of the thesis should be done by at least two external examiners.

Other conditions include that open PhD viva voice of the candidate had been conducted and there should be two research publications from his or her PhD work. The candidate should also have made at least two presentations in conferences or seminars.

These accomplishments are to be certified by the Vice-Chancellor, Pro-Vice-Chancellor, Dean (Academic Affairs) or Dean (University Instructions).

UGC chairman Ved Prakash said that while there is a shortage of faculty in institutions of higher education, this move will help in allowing many candidates apply for teaching positions.

 At the interaction here, Irani also said that by next week, the matter related to Academic Performance Indicator (API) scores, on the basis of which teachers are granted promotions, will be brought forth in public.
 The HRD minister, however, added that she feels that the promotion of a teacher should be conjoined with the performance of the class.

On a question related to NIT Srinagar, Irani said that her ministry’s officers will stay there till exams are conducted. Those who wanted postponement will also be facilitated, she said.

 Asked about the decision to fly national flag prominently at University Campuses, Irani said it was VCs who at a conference had passed this resolution.
