New rule, Indian students can take admission in Universities twice a year

The University Grants Commission (UGC) has recently launched a new initiative that gives hope of giving a new turn to the Indian education system. Under this initiative, universities will now be able to conduct the admission process twice a year. This new step aims to provide more options and opportunities to the students. UGC chief Jagdish Kumar said this scheme has been approved by the University Grants Commission (UGC). Admissions will now be offered in July-August and January-February, starting with the 2024-25 academic year.

Online reports suggest UGC chief Jagdish Kumar says that many students will benefit from this. Similarly, students whose board results came late or missed admission due to illness or any other reason. Admission twice a year will keep the enthusiasm of the students intact as they will not have to wait till next year. Companies will also be able to do campus placement twice a year, giving graduates more job opportunities.

Jagdish Kumar said that with this, colleges and universities will be able to use teachers, labs, classrooms, and other facilities better. This will also increase exchange programs with foreign universities and strengthen India’s competitiveness in global education.

He further said, universities around the world already offer admission twice a year. If Indian institutions also do this, running programs with foreign universities and exchange students will become easier. This will strengthen India’s competitiveness in global education and our education system will come closer to international standards.

In addition, he mentioned that all institutions don’t have to offer admission twice a year. Only those institutions can take advantage of this which has the necessary things, like infrastructure and sufficient teachers. To give admission twice a year, the institutions will also have to change their rules.”
