|General||40 (40%)||40 (40%)||75 (50%)|
|OBC/PWD/SC/ST||35 (35%)||35 (35%)||60 (40%)|
Candidates who satisfy the above criteria (clearing cut off marks), a merit list will be prepared subject-wise and category-wise using the aggregate marks of all the three papers secured by such candidates.
The results for UGC NET exam will be declared on the official CBSE website according to the schedule. Candidates can check their results once the merit list has been published.
Candidates must obtain the minimum cut-off marks to qualify the exam. From among the candidates who successfully secure the minimum marks, a merit list will be prepared, both subject-wise and category-wise. For this purpose, the aggregate marks obtained in all three papers by each candidate will be taken into consideration.
The top 15% candidates (for each subject and category) from the merit list will be declared to be NET qualified for eligibility for Assistant Professor only. Now, a separate merit list for Junior Research Fellowship will be prepared from amongst these NET qualified candidates using the following formula:
No. of candidates selected under General category for JRF in a subject = [(No. of candidates who have opted for JRF and are qualified for eligibility for Assistant Professor in that subject) X (No. of slots available under General category)] / (Total No. of General candidates who have opted for JRF and are qualified for eligibility for Assistant Professor)
The same formula will be used for other categories as well.
