This news is in regard to the UGC NET June 2012. Some students who did not make it to the UGC NET list, formed the “Organization of the UGC NET June 2012 Injustice Victims” held a protest in front of the UGC office on 11 March 2013.
According to the students, they took the National Eligibility Test in June 2012, and there was a notification in the exam declaration form that said they will be eligible if their scores in three papers ranged from 40 to 50 per cent, but when the results were declared the eligibility criteria was set at 65 per cent for the general category.
Apparently, on 18 September 2012, the UGC declared the results as well is the changed eligibility criteria without actually issuing any notification. At the moment, there are more than four hundred petitions filled in different high courts. The candidates have now threatened to go on a hunger strike in front of the UGC office if their demand are not met.
