Key Changes in the UGC NET Qualifying Criteria

 

There is certain qualifying criteria which need is followed by UGC to select the deserving candidates.

 

UGC has decided that 6% of the candidates appearing for the NET Exam will be declared as qualifying to be eligible for the entry-level post of Assistant Professor and the Reservation Policy as per the category will be applied to this 6% qualified candidates.

 

Top 6% of the candidates who take the exam and score minimum 40% aggregate marks (at least 35% aggregate marks for candidates belonging to social groups viz., Scheduled Castes / Scheduled Tribes/ Other Backward Classes (Non-creamy layer)/ People with Disabilities/Transgenders) will be eligible for Assistant Professor.

 

As per the estimates by UGC data trends of the last two decades, around 68% to 92% candidates qualifying UGC NET Exam are from the reserved category.

Previous Norms v/s the Latest UGC NET Selection Procedure

  

As per the current UGC norms regarding the procedure and criteria for declaration of UGC NET Result, the top 15% candidates from each of the four reservation category (OBC, SC, ST, PWD, Transgenders) on the merit list with prescribed minimum marks will be declared as qualified for Assistant Professor.

 

The Merit List of the candidates who have secured minimum marks would be prepared subject wise and category wise.

 

Now, as per the new notification, only 6% of candidates of previously 15% will be now declared as qualified.

 

This means that if suppose 6 Lakh candidates appear in UGC NET Exam then 6% of 6 lakh i.e. 36000 slots will be provided for the qualifying candidates for different categories as per the new policy.

Why was the decision to change the Qualifying Criteria undertaken?

 

The decision to change the selection criteria of UGC NET Exam came after a petition was filed by Nair Service Society with the Kerala High Court.

 

According to the HC order in January 2017, the selection criteria of giving relaxation marks to reserved categories were considered as unconstitutional and as a move which is unfavorable for the general candidates.

 

As per the petition filed, the High Court had argued that because of the UGC NET Qualifying minimum marks prescribed to the reserved categories candidates, there are more candidates qualified with minimum marks from these categories as compared to the number of general candidates qualified for the exam.

 

As per the current Reservation Policy, the reservation provided for the four categories are mentioned below.

 

S. No. Categories Reservation Provided
1. Other Backward Classes (OBC) 27%
2. Scheduled Caste (SC) 15%
3. Scheduled Tribes (ST) 7.5%
4. Person with Disabilities (PWD) 3%

 

 

There would be no change in the method of allocation of these candidates and the various disciplines for UGC Junior Research Fellowships.
