India to recognize UK Master’s Degree

Usually the Master’s degree courses in UK span for about a Year, while Master’s degree in India is for 2 years. At present India doesn’t recognize the UK degrees, going forward it is most likely that UK Master’s Degree holders will be allowed to pursue higher studies such as M.Phil or PhD. The Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) of India & University Grants Commission (UGC) is working on a plan for mutual recognition of Degrees.

The Association of Indian Universities or AIU is the body responsible for granting recognition or equivalence to foreign degrees in India, and as of today, it does not validate master’s degrees of under two years’ duration. Students returning from UK will soon get the relief and continue their studies in India.

Once the MHRD sets the rules in place to consider UK Degrees, students returning from UK with Master’s Degrees will also be eligible to apply for Government Jobs.

Only 172 Universities out of 612 are accredited by NAAC

Out of 612 Universities in the country, only 172 of them have been accredited by the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC). Out of the Universities accredited, 67 have been placed in Grade A, 99 Universities in Grade B and only 6 in Grade C, based on scores awarded during the process of accreditation. NAAC follows the process of Grade accreditation only and does not undertake threshold accreditation, i.e the Grade is only a relative value assigned to a university and does not denote an absolute attribute of quality.

At present, accreditation is voluntary for Higher Education Institutions in the country. A Legislation namely National Accreditation Regulatory Authority for Higher Educational Institutions Bill, 2010 has been introduced in Parliament which proposes to make accreditation mandatory for all Higher Education Institutions. Quality improvement is a continuous process in Universities and University Grants Commission (UGC) has reported that it has taken several steps to improve quality of universities, which include issuing Regulations on maintenance of standards and quality in all universities, including Private Universities, deemed to be universities, Central Universities and state universities.

New JEE 2013 eligibility criteria, exact board cutoffs to be known only after board exams

The Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) for admission to the undergraduate programmes in engineering would be conducted in two parts. JEE-MAIN and JEE-ADVANCED. The JEE-Advanced examination will be held after JEE-Main with a suitable time gap. Only the top 150,000 candidates (including all categories) in JEE-Main will be qualified to appear in the JEE-Advanced examination. Admissions to IITs will be based only on category-wise All India Rank (AIR) in JEE-Advanced, subject to the condition that such candidates are in the top 20 percentile of successful candidates in the respective Boards in applicable categories. As one time exception, in respect of those students who passed their Board exams in 2012, the eligibility criteria for joining IITs would be 60% marks in XII Board examination (55% for SC/ST/PD).

Marks to be secured by a candidate to fall within the top 20 percentile will vary from one Board to another and from one year to another year. The exact cut off of top 20 percentile marks in a Board marks will be known only after the Board results are declared, depending upon the marking pattern of any Board.

No two Boards are being equated, instead a candidate would be tested against his peers who have appeared in the same Board examination and whose performance has been evaluated in the same manner as them. The use of percentile ranking assumes that the quality of students is uniformly distributed across the Boards.
