UGC NET Overview
The National Testing Agency (NTA) has been entrusted by the University Grants Commission (UGC) with the task of conducting UGC-NET, which is a Test to determine the eligibility of Indian nationals for ‘Assistant Professor’ as well as ‘Junior Research Fellowship and Assistant Professor’ in Indian Universities and Colleges.
The UGC-NET is being conducted by the National Testing Agency (NTA) in Computer Based Test (CBT) mode w.e.f. December 2018 onwards.
Awarding of Junior Research Fellowship (JRF) and/ or Eligibility for Assistant Professorship depends on the aggregate performance of the candidate in Paper-I and Paper-II of UGC-NET. The candidates qualifying only for Assistant Professorship are not eligible to be considered for the award of JRF. Candidates who qualify the eligibility test for Assistant Professorship are governed by the rules and regulations of the concerned Universities/Colleges/State Governments, as the case may be for recruitment of Assistant Professor.
UGC-NET is conducted twice every year (June & December). Due to the outbreak of COVID- 19 pandemic in 2020 & 2021, the cycles of UGC NET were merged and conducted together.
In order to regularize the UGC-NET examination cycle, the National Testing Agency (NTA), with the concurrence of UGC is conducting UGC NET December 2022 in the month of February & March 2023 in 83 subjects, at selected cities across the country.
Going a step further and to regularise the exam cycle, the NTA has released exam dates for the later half of the year and the exam will be held from 13th to 22nd June 2023.
As NTA gears up to conduct the exam in a proper manner, students also need to prepare themselves for the exam in a dedicated manner. One of the things that motivates a person to prepare for an exam is the avenues that are available to him/her after passing the exam. The UGC NET exam is one of the prestigious exams conducted in India and it provides multiple career options to those who are able to crack it. Even though everyone prepares and tries to give his/ her best in the exam but still one thinks what if they are able to score the minimum qualifying marks just above the cut off.

Are passing marks sufficient for getting a UGC NET certificate?
Yes, scoring minimum passing marks is sufficient for getting a UGC NET certificate. But the avenues available to any candidate after getting such certificate are very less. While scoring highly in the exam makes you eligible for becoming Junior Research Fellow (JRF) and Assistant Professor, scoring low marks in the exam might not present the same opportunities. One can apply for assistant professor exam and may be able to get it but there is no surity.
It is best if you give your best and score well in the exam so that you can avail all the opportunities available.
