UGC NET Cut-offs

A month after the results are published, the qualified candidates receive an e-certificate and JRF (Junior Research Fellowship) award letters. They are eligible for Assistant Professorship and JRF for Colleges and Universities across the country.
According to the data from UGC NET, shortlisted candidates make up about 6% of the candidates appearing for the examination. Students who did not qualify can prepare and appear for the exam again in six months, as the exams are conducted twice a year by NTA (ideally in the months of July and December). Candidates are advised to keep track of the official website for further details.
