    The National Eligibility test (NET) is conducted every year by the University Grants Commission (UGC) every year. This is an exam which is conducted for the purpose of determining the eligibility of the candidates for lectureship in various universities or for awarding the fellowship programs on a whole. An exam is conducted by the CSIR for certain science subjects in particular.

    The UGC NET exam is mainly conducted two time s in a year in the month of June and December. The main motive of conducting this exam is with the objective that only qualified individuals get in to the position of lectures or researchers in major universities or college etc. Since you are a graduate you are not able to attend the UGC-NET exam since only post graduates are eligible to attend this exam.

    The minimum eligibility qualification requires the candidates to secure a post graduation degree in the specific subject area from any recognized university or college. The candidates need secure around 55% of aggregate marks during the course of study. The age limit is around 35 years and reservations are available for selected categories. The exam pattern of the UGC –NET exam is as follows-
    • General Knowledge
    • Current Affairs
    • Reasoning Ability
    • Quantitative Methods
    • Subject Area

    The exam will be mainly the objective type test.
