After the conduction of the exam, many students made the complaint about the lengthy paper and less time for attempting the entire paper. This year CBSE made some huge changes in the paper pattern and the duration of the exam. It cut down the exam duration by 15 minutes of paper I, the earlier paper I had to be completed in 75 minutes, but now onwards the limit is 60 minutes.

The qualified candidates can go for the lectureship or they can apply for the Junior Research Fellow. But they should look at age limitation. UGC made changes in that. The highest age limit is now 30 years, which was 28 year earlier.
