Which is an examination to determine the eligibility of Indian citizens for ‘Assistant Professor’ as well as ‘Junior Research Fellowship’ and ‘Assistant Professor’ in Indian Universities and Colleges.

UGC-NET is being conducted by the National Testing Agency (NTA) in Computer Based Test (CBT) mode from December 2018.

The award of eligibility for Junior Research Fellowship (JRF) or Assistant Professorship depends on the overall performance of the candidate in Paper-I and Paper-II of UGC-NET. Candidates who have qualified only for Assistant Professorship are not eligible for the award of JRF. Candidates who qualify the eligibility test for Assistant Professor are governed by the rules and regulations of the respective Universities/ Colleges/ State Governments, as the case may be, for the recruitment of Assistant Professor.

UGC-NET is conducted twice (June and December) every year. Due to the outbreak of COVID- 19 pandemic in 2020 and 2021, the cycles of UGC NET were conducted together.

In order to regularize the UGC-NET exam cycle, the National Testing Agency (NTA), with the concurrence of the UGC, is conducting the UGC NET December 2022 in February and March 2023 in 83 subjects in selected cities across the country.
