Candidates now need to appear in a separate JNU PhD entrance Examination
In a step taken by the country’s most reputed university leaving aspirants in shock, Jawaharlal Nehru University has done the delinking of the MPhil and PhD programme. The decision has been recently taken in the 144th Academic Council meeting, which was held on December 1. Furthermore, the MPhil programmed will from this academic session 2018-2019 will be a terminal degree. In order to get enrolled in the PhD programme, students need to appear in a separate entrance examination.
The aspirants can find the notification related to the terminal degree on the admit card of JNU Entrance Examination (JNUEE). This step has been taken in order to benefit a wider section of students. As per the new University Grant Commission regulations the students who have completed their Master’s degree could also compete in the PhD programme directly. Interestingly, this decision is expected to help innumerable students all across the nation to get enrolled in the Doctorate programme of JNU.
Earlier students doing MPhil from JNU could easily continue their PhD if they had passed MPhil with adequate percentage and the students of MPhil outside the varsity of JNU had to clear the interview. According to JNU Rector Chintamani Mahapatra this had restricted many students from pursuing a PhD at JNU. Although, this decision has not been lauded by the JNU Teachers Association and have claimed it as an “illegal move”. In fact, they have demanded an immediate withdrawal of the announcement. Strikingly, the date of the JNU Entrance Examination for this academic year 2018-2019 has been scheduled between 23 to 27 December, 2017.
I really appreciate the counselling efforts by CollegeMELA Team. They make medical counselling so smooth and stress-free. The team helped me a lot in as the Medical counselling in India is most confusing and hectic. Especially for the students who score a total which does not guarantee a clear cutoff for any college and pushed to mop-up round for seat allocation. Even team came with us in many different cities and told all the merits and demerits of the colleges because of which I selected a good college. I got a college in India for MBBS with the help of CollegeMELA team. Thanks to them for their support.
