UGC NET score is a qualifying criterion for Junior Research Fellowship (JRF). UGC NET score is also compulsory for recruitment as Assistant Professor in public universities. So candidates who wish to become a lecturer in a university or wish to continue research in their field of interest must appear for the exam.
Many universities also prefer UGC NET qualified candidates during admission to PhD courses. Such candidates are exempted from appearing for PhD entrance exams and are directly called for interview.
CBSE conducts NET exam for 84 different subjects. Candidates whose subject is not listed can appear for NET in an allied discipline.
