The varsity has been given accreditation by the UGC to hold the test for the next three years
Osmania University has been accredited by the University Grants Commission (UGC) to conduct the State Eligibility Test (SET) for Andhra Pradesh for the next three years in 27 subjects related to Sciences, Arts and Humanities.
In a letter sent to the Osmania University, the UGC expressed overall satisfaction over the smooth and successful conduct of SET last year. Usually UGC grants accreditation for one year but it is a rare distinction that Osmania University has been given accreditation for the next three consecutive years starting from June, 2013, a statement from the OU said.
The OU intends to conduct the SET this year in August. The State governments and Union Territories have been given an option of conducting SET examinations in English and respective languages for eligibility for Lecturer and assistant professor jobs at the State-level.
