After NEET (National Eligibility cum Entrance Test), now UGC NET (National Eligibility Test) students are facing the poor arrangements of the National Testing Agency (NTA). 9.5 lakh students were registered for this exam held across the country on June 18. Many students complain that they spent money to take this exam and traveled 100 to 500 kilometers in the scorching heat. NTA has also not clarified what problems they faced. Many students say that NTA has become a non-reliable agency, due to which they have lost confidence. Because of this, not only students but also parents are on the streets in the scorching heat.

'NTA has failed… PhD admissions will also be delayed'

Prasenjit Kumar, a student of Delhi University, appeared for the NET exam in History. He says that 90% of the exams conducted by NTA so far have been rigged and fraudulent. This clearly shows that the National Testing Agency is under the control of the education mafia. Well 24 lakh students were troubled and now the future of more than 9 lakh NET students has been ruined.

He says that this time NET was not only for teaching eligibility but also for PhD admission. Now it has been cancelled which means that PhD admission will be delayed. It is surprising that such a large scale rigging and irregularities are happening in the examination system in the country and the Education Minister is neither accepting the mistake of NTA nor the paper leak scam. There is a need to investigate NTA, nor to get it investigated by its team.

'From online to offline mode, but what is the guarantee of transparency'

Nandlal, a working student, says, the paper went well and I was hopeful that I would qualify NET. Earlier, I have also qualified NET in journalism. I had taken leave from office for the test. Time, money, hard work, everything was wasted. My centre was in Jhansi and there were many students who had reached there after travelling for hours. Some had taken leave by getting their salary deducted, while many had somehow managed to arrange money and reached the centre. Now all the students will have to do the same exercise again.

It is beyond comprehension that in the digital age when everything is changing, NET exam has been conducted in computer based online mode, then why has it been brought back to the old system?

Ankit Kumar, who appeared for the NET exam from Patna, says, when the exam was conducted in online mode, there was always a possibility of cheating. There is cheating in offline mode as well. NEET is an example of this. Which exam can NTA conduct properly? When it cannot conduct NTET entrance for 45 thousand students and cancels it too, then how was it given the contract to conduct such a big entrance? The Education Minister should see how students prepare for the exam while facing difficulties. NTA should be closed. This entrance should be conducted by an institution like CBSE, which has experience. Whose team should have experienced experts.

From NEET to UGC NET, students are upset with the crumbling system of NTA. Protests are happening across the country. JNU student Anvesha also got angry with the news of the sudden cancellation of the NET exam. She says, I had given this exam in Linguistics but it was suddenly cancelled. When I reached to protest with other students, the police took us into custody.

NTA scam: Flaws from the beginning

The National Common Entrance Test (NCET) held on June 12 before NET was also cancelled by NTA on the day of the exam. 29000 students had appeared in this entrance exam for admission in the four-year Integrated Teacher Education Program. Earlier, the Common University Entrance Test (NCET) was also cancelled by NTA on the day of the exam.CUET-UG) was also cancelled by NTA in Delhi on the very first day, due to which the students had to face a lot of problems. In 2023 also, the exam started three-four hours late due to server down at many examination centers in CUET. In 2022 also, CUET had to be cancelled at many centers, students missed the exam, then the entrance was done again, the session started about 3 months late in all the universities.
