The University Grants Commission (UGC), recently, has approved the use of National Eligibility Test (NET) scores for PhD admissions starting 2024-25 academic session. The decision will help streamline the admission process under the National Education Policy (NEP) 2020, to eliminate the need for multiple entrance exams.

Starting from the academic session 2024-2025, universities nationwide will have the opportunity to utilise NET scores for admissions to PhD programmes, replacing the need for separate entrance tests conducted by individual universities and higher education institutions (HEIs). This marks an important step in streamlining the admissions process and enhancing accessibility for aspiring doctoral candidates.

M Jagesh Kumar, chairman, UGC, said, “By leveraging the NET, which is conducted biannually, universities can offer greater flexibility to students, allowing them to utilise their scores from either session to apply for PhD programmes across various institutions. This initiative is poised to benefit students in numerous ways. Firstly, it eliminates the need for students to prepare and appear for multiple entrance tests conducted by different universities, thereby reducing the burden of exam logistics and expenses. Additionally, the biannual administration of the NET provides students with increased opportunities to secure admission to their desired PhD programmes. We strongly encourage all universities to adopt NET exam scores for PhD admissions starting from the 2024-2025 academic session. This will contribute to fostering a more conducive environment for academic pursuit and scholarly advancement in our nation.”

The results of NET will be declared in percentile along with the marks obtained by a candidate to utilise the marks for PhD admission.
