UGC NET 2021 Scorecard

UGC NET 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

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 2021 Normalization Process

UGC NET 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.

How's the M.Sc from JNU as compared to DU?
K
kavita rani

Hi Puja. See it depends on the subject as both the universities are renowned so it hardly matters. In JNU, school of biotechnology, life sciences, environmental science, school of computer science are excellent and even the teachers offering education in DU are highly experienced with years of experience. So it is you who need to make the final call.
