UGC NET Exam Pattern/Format.
UGC-NET Sample Papers & Prep Books

Having said  that, let us at first know what is UGC NET.

What is UGC NET:

As said above, NET (National Eligibility Test) is a national level benchmark test which is conducted by CBSE for selection of JRFs and Lecturers for Indian universities and colleges. How did UGC NET came into place? A small history might interest you.

In early eighties, it was increasingly felt by public and leading educationalists alike that quality of education system in India had deteriorated as a large number of people who had neither the competence nor the aptitude for teaching made an easy entry into the teaching profession. The cause for this was identified to be the absence of a Benchmark Qualifying test for entering into teaching profession.

Therefore, the Government on India, through a notification on 22nd July, 1988 entrusted the task of conducting the eligibility test for Lectureship to UGC. UGC was already conducting an examination for Junior Research Fellowship (JRF) since 1984. As a result of this 1988 notification; UGC is conducting the National Eligibility Test (UGC-NET) for Lectureship as well as with CSIR (CSIR-UGC NET) for both Lectureships as well as for Junior Research Fellowship (JRF) since 1989.

Till UGC NET June 2014, it was conducted by UGC itself. But however since from UGC NET December 2014, CBSE was entrusted with the job to conduct the exam on behalf of UGC.

UGC-NET June 2016 Dates:

The notification for UGC NET June 2016 is yet to come out. However, if you know the exam date of UGC NET June 2016, it would help you to schedule your preparation better. Therefore, following dates have been projected based on the last two years UGC NET exam date trends:

Date of Online Application Form for UGC NET June 2016: 14.04.2016,
Last date for Applying for for UGC NET June 2016: 13.05.2016
Exam Date of  UGC NET June 2016: 26.06.2016

How did I do it? You can find from the date trend analysis given below:
UGC-NET June 2016 Exam Dates

As you can find above, UGC conducts NET in the last Sunday of June every year. Hence the exam date for UGC NET June 2016 should be 26th June, 2016. The date of application form (i.e. start and last date) has been projected from the previous years. The exam notification for the June comes out in the last week of March, first week of April. So to find the UGC NET June 2016 Notification, you should search for it in this CBSE site.

UGC-NET June 2016 Notification:

The exam notification for this exam is going to come out only in late March/April beginning. But till that comes out, you can go through this previous years i.e. UGC NET June 2015 Notification to have some idea.

Eligibility for UGC-NET June 2016:

Eligibility criteria for appearing in UGC NET (qualification & age criteria) are as follows:

1.0 Educational Qualification criteria:

For OBC non-creamy layer, SC/ST candidates, Physically and Visually Handicapped candidates the qualifying marks is 50%. You can find the list of 83 subjects for which UGC NET is conducted in this webpage.

If you are a Ph.D. degree holder, having passed Master's degree prior to 19th September 1991, you are eligible for a relaxation of 5% in aggregate marks (i.e., from 55% to 50%) for appearing in NET.

If you are studying in the final year/semester of M.Sc. or Equivalent degree in above subjects or have appeared in the final exams already and waiting for results, you can appear in the NET conditionally under RA (Result Awaited) category.

(Upper age limit relaxed up to 5 years for SC/ST/OBC, Physically handicapped/Visually handicapped and female applicants).

Above eligibility means if you are 28 years or less on 01-12-2016, you can apply for both Lectureship as well as for JRF while if you are more than 28, you can apply only for Lectureship.

UGC NET June 2016 Online Form:

CSIR NET 2016 Cut Off Mark Branch-wise, Category-wise: Latest exams

CSIR NET 2016 Cut Off Mark Branch-wise, Category-wise: Latest exams

CSIR NET 2016 Cut Off MarkThis article of mine answers a very pertinent question running on your mind if you have chosen to appear in CSIR UGC NET June 2016: What would be the Cut Off mark for CSIR UGC NET June 2016? I am trying to answer it by compiling the Cut-Off mark published officially by CSIR for each of the last for exams held i.e. since from December 2013 till June 2015.

The CSIR NET Cut Off marks presented here is arranged Branch-wise, Category-wise, year-wise. Why have I done it so? Because say suppose you are from "Chemical Science" as your qualification - you do not then need the cut-off marks for other branches.

Towards the end of the article, this article also tells you what could be the CSIR NET 2016 Cut Off, based on these last four years cut-off data. Mind you, no one knows about the cut-off for sure till the result is declared and the cut-off mark is published. But then, you must have a target mark to study for and that is why the CSIR NET 2016 Cut Off has been projected.

You might be knowing it already, but let me repeat this to say that there are five subject for which this exam is held and it is held for two category of posts - Junior Research Fellowships (JRF) and Lectureship. If you analyse the CSIR NET cut-off marks given below more closely, you would find that cut off mark for JRF is higher than that of Lectureship - it is about 5% higher! So in case you have doubt on your capability on cracking this exam - I think you should choose Lectureship as your first preference.

Without going further let us zoom-in on the subject of this article: Branch-wise, Category-wise Cut Off marks of CSIR NET for four latest exams. You would also find the average, highest and lowest cut-off marks for each branch. All the figures given below are in the form of percentages (%ages). There are 200 marks in this exam and hence if you want to find the exact marks, just double the figures.

CSIR NET Cut-Off for Chemical Science JRF:

CSIR NET Cut-Off for Chemical Science Lectureship:

CSIR NET Cut-Off for Earth Science JRF:

Thus above presents you the cut-off marks for all five subjects of CSIR NET branch-wise, category-wise of last four years.

CSIR NET 2016 Cut Off Marks:


Based on above data, let me present you what could be the probable cut-off mark for the ensuing CSIR NET 2016 exam:
CSIR NET 2016 Cut Off Marks

How did I arrive at above cut off mark for CSIR NET 2016, even though the exam is not yet held? Well, I have just taken the highest cut-off marks of last four exams. This is the minimum mark you should target. If you want to be doubly sure, increase the cut-off marks, by at least 10%. For example for Chemical Science (JRF), try to score minimum 64.62% marks.

There may be many among you who wants to top the merit list of CSIR NET 2016. For this you want to know CSIR NET Topper marks. Please stand by for my next article: CSIR NET Topper marks Branch-wise, Category-wise.
