UGC NET 2020 Result Calculation

  • Around 6% of the candidates will qualify the exam for Assistant Professor.
  • Total slots will be allocated to different categories as per the reservation policy of the Government of India.
  • In order to be considered for ‘both JRF and Assistant Professorship’ or ‘Assistant Professorship only’ posts, the candidates must have appeared in both the papers and secured atleast 40% in aggregate (35% for reserved categories) in the exam.

The number of candidates to be declared qualified in any subject for a particular category is derived as per the methodology illustrated below:

Example: Candidate appears for Economics subject

No. of candidates to be declared qualified for eligibility for Assistant Professor in the subject ‘Economics’ for the SC category No. of candidates belonging to SC category who secure at least 35% aggregate marks in both the papers taken together for ‘Economics’ x Total slots derived for SC category as per Step II ÷ Total number of candidates belonging to SC category over all subjects who secure at least 35% aggregate marks in both the papers taken together.

The aggregate percentage of the two papers corresponding to the number of slots arrived at, will determine the qualifying cutoff for eligibility for the post of Assistant Professor ‘in ‘Economics’ for the SC category. Similar yardstick shall be employed for deriving the subject-wise qualifying cutoffs for all categories.

All candidates who had applied for both ‘Eligibility for JRF & Assistant Professor’ out of the total number of qualified candidates derived as per Step IV, shall constitute the consideration zone for JRF.

UGC NET 2020 Normalization Process

Normalization of the scores is based on Percentile method to calculate the result for the examination. Through normalization, the difficulty level of exam is adjusted thereby providing an unbiased score. The scores are allotted between 100 to 0 for each session of the exam. Through Normalization, raw scores are converted to Percentile.

Formula:

Total Percentile = Number of candidates appeared in the ‘Session’ with raw score EQUAL TO OR LESS than the candidate/Total Number of candidates appeared in the ‘session’.

Finally, the raw scores are merged with percentile for both the sessions to calculate the final result.

UGC NET Result for Junior Research Fellowship (JRF)

After the above process, a separate cut off list is prepared for the students eligible for JRF. Below is the formula to calculate the score and thus the eligibility.

Number of slots under General Category for JRF = (Number of candidates who have opted for eligibility for Assistant Professor in that subject X Number of slots available under General category) / Total number of general candidates who have opted for JRF and are qualified for eligibility for an assistant professor.

Hi Mizna. Post qualifying UGC NET exam you can either do PhD or can apply for a Job as well. In case you enroll for a PhD course, you have the validity of 2 years from the date of issue of NET E-certificate or JRF Award Letter. While applying for Asst. Prof. you have a lifetime validity for applying as an assistance professor.
