If you plan to apply for UGC NET exam, the essential thing which you must check before applying for the exam is the UGC NET Eligibility Criteria. Below you can check the basic eligibility criteria for the exam i.e. education qualification and age norms.
To sort out the suitable candidates based on their age limits, educational qualifications and other criteria, NTA has decided some guidelines for the exam.
|General||55% Aggregate Marks in Post-Graduation or Equivalent Degree|
|OBC/SC/ST/PwD/Transgender||50% in Post-Graduation or Equivalent Degree|
|Ph.D. Degree (Completed Degree before 19th Sep 1993)||5% Relaxation in Aggregate Marks|
According to the guidelines candidates, who are in the qualifying year of post-graduation or equivalent degree can also appear for the NTA UGC NET Exam.
|OBC/SC/ST/PwD/Female/Transgender Candidates||35 Years (5 Year’s Relaxation)|
For Assistant Professor – Any age group candidates can apply for UGC NET Electronics Science Exam. There is no age restriction.
Is your post-graduation subject related to Electronic science or not? Check the list of subjects related to electronic science before applying for UGC NET Electronics Science Exam.
Before starting the exam preparation, grab all the details related to exam such as syllabus, exam pattern, Study Material, etc. Here you can get the complete information.
To prepare well for the exam, the next step is getting the complete knowledge related to the exam pattern.
There are two papers in UGC NET i.e. Paper 1 and Paper 2.
For a brief idea about UGC NET Exam Pattern, please check below-
|Paper||Marks||Number of Questions||Duration|
|I||100||50 Questions all are Compulsory||
|II||200||100 Question all are Compulsory|
Important Note - In June 2020, Paper 1 & Paper 2 will be conducted in a single three hour duration.
Paper 1 is same for all subjects and consists total of 50 compulsory questions of General Aptitude Test.
Whereas Paper 2 consists total of 100 compulsory questions of Electronics Science subject.
Both papers have objective type questions. There is no minus marking on any wrong answer in both papers.
The NTA UGC NET Syllabus of Electronic Sciences is huge, and it’s not an easy task to cover the whole syllabus. To make it easy for you, we have come up with the list of important topics of Electronics according to their marking weightage in the previous years’ papers.
|5||Science & Environment|
|8||Governance, Polity and Administration|
|1||Electronic Transport in semiconductor|
|5||Architecture of 8085 and 8086 Microprocessors|
|6||Introduction of High – level Programming Language|
|8||Basic principles of amplitude|
|9||Characteristics of solid state power devices|
|14||Open – loop and close-loop control system|
The third step of preparation after getting the details related to syllabus and exam pattern will be to acquire the best UGC NET Electronics Science Study Material to direct your preparation in the right way.
To make sure that you do not leave a single chance to grab success. Here at this place, you can find out the Free PDFs of Last 5 UGC NET Question Papers with Solutions with some of the standard books for UGC-NET Electronic Science.
