How to Calculate UGC NET Cutoff

  • The number of candidates qualified in UGC NET is equal to six percent of the candidates who appeared in both papers of the exam.
  • Total slots are allocated to candidates belonging to different categories as per the reservation policy of the Government of India.
  • In order to be considered for the award of JRF and/or eligibility for Assistant Professor, candidates need to score the minimum marks as mentioned below:
Category Paper-I (Maximum Marks:100) Paper-II (Maximum Marks:100)
General 40% 40%
Other Backward Class-Non-Creamy Layer (OBC-NCL)/Persons with Disability (PwD)/Scheduled Caste (SC)/Scheduled Tribe (ST) 35% 35%
  • The number of candidates declared UGC NET qualified in any subject for a particular category is derived as per the methodology given below:

For Example:

Number of candidates to be declared qualified for Eligibility for Assistant Professor in the subject ‘Economics’ for the Scheduled Caste (SC) category Number of candidates belonging to SC category who secure at least 35% aggregate marks in both the papers taken together for SC category for ‘Economics’ (x) Total slots derived for SC category as per Step II (÷) Total number of candidates belonging to SC category overall subjects who secure at least 35% aggregate marks in both the papers taken together
  • The aggregate percentage secured by candidates in the two papers corresponding to the number of slots shall determine the qualifying cut-off for eligibility for Assistant Professor in Economics for the SC category. Similarly, cutoffs shall be decided for all subjects and categories.
  • All candidates (who had applied for both Assistant Professor and JRF) out of the total number of qualified candidates derived in Step IV, shall be considered for JRF.
  • The total number of slots available for awarding JRF is allocated among different categories as per the reservation policy of the Government of India. The procedure for subject-wise cum category-wise allocation of JRF slots is mentioned below:

For example:

Number of candidates to be declared qualified for JRF & Eligibility for Assistant Professor Both in the subject ‘Economics’ for the Scheduled Tribe (ST) category Number of candidates belonging to ST category who have opted for JRF and have qualified for Eligibility for Assistant Professor Both in the subject ‘Economics’ (x) Total JRF slots available for ST category (÷) Total number of candidates belonging to ST category overall subjects who have opted for JRF and have qualified for Eligibility for Assistant Professor
  • The aggregate percentage secured by candidates in both the papers corresponding to the number of JRF slots shall determine the qualifying cut-off for JRF in Economics for the ST category. Similarly, cutoffs shall be decided for all subjects and categories.

UGC NET 2020 Normalization Process:

The normalization of the scores is based on the Percentile method to calculate the result for the examination. Through normalization, the difficulty level of the 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 the percentile for both the sessions to calculate the final result.

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.

  • The 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.
