UGC NET exam – Do not do these to avoid disqualification
Many students complained that they had been unduly disqualified as ““Unfair Means”. The students were shocked to see the results as they had not resorted to unfair mens such as cheating or use of any illegal help. When this was brought to the notice of UGC, the cause of disqualification was determined to be wrong means of answering in the paper.
Any mistake such as darkening answer sheet with any other marking device other than blue/black ball point pen can lead to disqualification. Also, if a student tries to change the answer once marked or uses white fluid, he/she may be disqualified.
As this was the first time a large number of students faced disqualification for this reason, UGC decided to cancel their disqualification and it was decided to process such result by deducting the marks of those responses which were changed by scratching or using white fluid.
Candidates who will be appearing in the UGC NET exam in future may note that
- Each question has four alternative responses marked as A, B, C, D. You have to darken the oval with Blue/Black ball point pen only.
- Once marked, no change in the answer is allowed in the OMR Sheet. More than one response is not permitted.
- Use of white fluid is prohibited.
All such candidates do not follow the above instructions/guidelines of UGC and change their responses by scratching or using white fluidwere will be disqualified.
In future NET examinations the candidates are liable to be disqualified in case response(s) is/are changed by scratching or using white fluid.
