UGC Yet To Issue Advertisement For NET Aspirants for the National Eligibility Test (NET), which decides eligibility to teach as lecturers at UGC recognized colleges across the country, are clueless about this important nationwide test as University Grants Commission (UGC) has not yet issued any notification for the exam usually held in December.

Normally registration formalities are at the final stage by mid-October. However, this year the candidates wonder, the process has not yet been initiated. Many believe that this could be a fallout of the controversy that engulfed UGC during the last NET held in June this year. A section of candidates who were declared failed according to the new criteria published after the exam had decided to approach the court for the relief.

The eligibility criteria with respect to the test score was changed by UGC after the exam from the one that was declared at the time of registration process. This resulted in many candidates being declared “not eligible” even as they met the earlier criteria.

A notification issued before the June exam said candidates will have to score a minimum percentage in all three papers. For paper-1 and paper-2, the minimum was set at 40% for general category and reserved category were allowed a five percentage point relaxation. For paper 3, the minimum was set at 50% for general category, 45% for OBC and 40% for all other category.

An undated, but said to be the most recent on UGC site says that candidates now needed an aggregate of 65% in all three papers for general category, 60% from OBC and 55% for others for declared as successful in the test and eligible for the position of lecturer in UGC affiliated universities.
