BARKATULLAH UNIVERSITY (BU) BHOPAL will be held entrance test for PhD by the End of July 2012. The test will be held by the end of next month. An advertisement will soon be released with details of the test,” Prof Nisha Dubey vice-chancellor BU, told TOI.
Entrance exam for admission in PhD course became mandatory after the University Grants Commission (UGC) 2009 rule came into existence. The degrees wouldn’t stand valid in case of the non-execution of the rule. For two years from 2009 to 2011, BU conducted Research Degree Committees (RDC) in various subjects of PhD and approved the synopsis of applicants. Students objected to the RDC and sought clarification from the vice-chancellor about the authenticity of their degrees.
